Tuesday Tune (Free Bird)

Chan Marshall has a reputation for choosing covers and breathing her own life into them, and even recorded an album solely of cover songs.

This week's Tuesday Tune is more of a fragment than a complete song. For her 2000 Peel session, John Peel specifically asked Marshall to reprise her cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird," to which she added an ethereal longing that even Ronnie Van Zandt could appreciate.
