M. Ward - Let My Love Open the Door

Here's a cover of M. Ward singing the Pete Townsend classic that appeared on a compilation called Sweethearts which I've been unable to find anything about. This version is an amazing folk version complete with Ward's twangy vocals that change the song into a weepy, porch-style song. It's really simply beautiful. I've also included the song "Hi-Fi" which appeared on Ward's amazing record Transistor Radio. He also played and co-wrote the remarkable 18-minute epic song "Willie Deadwilder" that appeared on Cat Power's DVD/CD combo released earlier this year. It's so good I'm surprised that I haven't heard more from him. I really can't recommend this anymore than I am right now.
