Today I'm back with part 3 of the ode to the "Ode To Billie Joe".
I checked on the CD's I have of Bobbie Gentry,
on some of them it's Billy Joe, on others Billie Joe...
First time I noticed this was when I did once more some (tiring)
research on the w.w.w. for more covers of this great song.
I had (much appreciated!) help of countless fellow-bloggers,
and ofcourse all the musicians who were inspired to
actually cover this beautiful song...
For this third part I've gathered some extremes, enfin,
just listen for yourselves and have fun!
