The Afghan Whigs’ “Woman” on Myspace

At long last, you can hear the Afghan Whigs’ cover of John Lennon’s “Woman.”

The track has been posted for streaming at the band’s Myspace page, along with a brief note explaining the song’s history.

However, when the label heard that the Whigs version had been based on a sample of Phil Spector’s string and choral arrangement from The Beatles’ “The Long and Winding Road” they referred this matter to the Paul McCartney camp and permission was flatly denied. The band refused to change it and the entire tribute record was subsequently shelved for unknown reasons.
