The Sandman, the Brakeman and Me.

Perhaps it's because we've got M. Ward, Conor Oberst and Jim James all in the same room singing and playing ... and perhaps it's because I love each of those musicians pretty much equally ... but this version of this song got moved to the Can't Stop Listening and Watching To It pile sometime last week and, well, there it remains, somewhere near the top. As far as I'm able to tell, Jim takes lead vocals on the video where M. Ward is front and center on the album version, but I do believe this one's the best-sounding one. Sidenote: this album sounds better now that it's Fall morphing into Winter.

After watching/listening a few times, I must agree that this version is better. Thanks for posting!
