Rarity Of The Day #1 – Farmer John (PUSA/Subset/Outtasite/Sir Mix-A-Lot)

Rarity Of The Day #1 – Farmer John (Cover)

New series starting today called “Rarity Of The Day”. My plan is to post one rare song (Preidents of the USA (or related) each day until X-mas day.

Today’s track is Farmer John.

Subset – Farmer John
2000-03-31 Palookaville, Santa Cruz, CA

Chris Ballew – Vocals, Bass (Presidents of the USA)
Dave Dederer – Vocals, Guitar (Presidents of the USA)
Jason Finn – Drums (Presidents of the USA)
Outtasite – Vocals
Sir Mix-A-Lot – Vocals

This was orignally “labeled” as a Neil Young cover, but the original Farmer John song was done by the Don & Dewey in 1959! I think the Subset version is based on version done by The Premiers. There are dozens of other artists who have covered this song, but Subset really turned this like it’s one of their. Band is on fire, and both Sir Mix-A-Lot and Outtasite are rapping like there is a rap battle going on stage… Subset is one of those band you either love or hate.

“All the tracks are good but none approach the live show, which was truly amazing…probably even better than The Presidents by themselves.” – Dave Dederer (about Subset)

Thanks to original taper who managed capture a live show magic on tape.
