Daniel Johnston “Walking the Cow” U&C

utterli-image
Daniel Johnston recorded his now classic album Hi, How Are You? in September of 1983 and not only has the third track on that release has become one of my favorites of all time, it’s also become a favorite of Johnston’s contemporaries.This is the first ‘Walking the Cow Visited & Revisited’ post, sharing the various versions I have at my disposal this very moment, as I intend to keep updating it as I go through ‘collection’ as I know I have a couple Mike Watt/fIREHOSE versions along with a few more done by Eddie Vedder/Pearl Jam as well.Daniel Johnston “Walking the Cow” (YSI)

TV on the Radio covered “Walking the Cow” on 2003’s double-disc The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered in an awesome fashion that reminds me a bit of Stereolab’s “Anemie”.

Eddie Vedder & Pearl Jam have covered “Walking the Cow” on several occassions, the earliest that I know of was in 1994 at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit.  Here’s Eddie covering “Walking the Cow” at a solo show on April 7th, 2007.
