Etzioni re-recorded the song for his 2013 solo double album Marvin Country!
This time he was backed by South Carolina gospel group The Dixie Humingbirds whom you may recognize from their contribution to Paul Simon's 1973 single, "Loves Me Like a Rock
." Etzioni told us that he sent The Dixie Humingbirds the files as they were touring with Paul Simon, so he wasn't in the studio when they cut their vocals.
Etzioni added that he originally didn't intend to release it on Marvin Country
, but he sent his original version without the Humingbirds as a birthday gift to someone, who responded that he should put it on his album. Then Etzioni got talking to Trevor Lawrence Jr. a drummer in LA, who is the grandson of Humingbirds member, Ira Tucker. He told Etzioni, "I have a song that would really work well for them," and Lawrence gave him his grandfather's number. "So the whole thing kind of took a life of its own," he continued. "Had I thought about it more, I would have arranged it different. You know, it doesn't have a solo, it doesn't have a key change like the Lone Justice version. But it is what it is. It still says the song."
