Mac McCaughan – “First and Last and Always”


mac mccaughanYour Halloween treat from Mac McCaughan this year is a cover of the title track from the first Sisters of Mercy album, which came out way back in 1985.

Where Andrew Eldritch’s vocals on the original version are soaked in his typical portentous bombast, McCaughan’s rendition is more sweet and vulnerable. Still, Mac couldn’t resist adding plenty of haunted-house reverb and a spooky organ track to keep the gloom in the room.
