Sweet Jane is a great song. Lou Reed did loads of versions better than that one though. 

I remember that Lou Reed one, always reminds me of having dropped a microdot, were they called?

Well he wrote it when he was in the Velvet Underground. First recorded version on Loaded but a few live versions before that. Cowboy Junkies version sounds like one of the earlier slower ones. Lou did rockier versions later and murdered the poor thing numerous times live. 

 

I reckon subconsciously or not he nicked loads of it from this

Yes the intro especially if my memory is correct. 40 years ago mind.

Leo and Davy from The Saw Doctors are friends of mine, super nice guys.

Forgot to add that Leo is a big LFC fan too.

Davy Carton has got a voice that could rattle windows in a different country.

Nice little cover with a great clarinet (or is it a sax?) solo at the end. Oliver Stone used in the Natural Born Killers but cut it off just before the solo, which is the best part.
