    General CommentAlabama 3 often does covers, but they're pretty thorough reworkings of the originals. This takes John Prine's Speed of the Sound of Loneliness, and changes it to the first person. So, it goes from being "You come home late, You come home early" to "I come home late, I come home early". "Well I got a heart that burns with a fever, And I got a worried and a jealous mind" becomes "you've got a heart that burns with a fever, you've got a worried and a jealous mind".

    Alabama 3 set out to mix country music with acid house and techno. This is a stellar example.

    It also works well with the overall theme of the Exile on Cold Harbor Lane album. Larry Love was running just to be on the run, until he met up with D Wayne Love, The Mountain of Love, The Spirit, and the whole First Presleyterian Church of Elvis the Divine (UK).
