Buzzin' Cousins - Sweet Suzanne

Falling From Grace is the title of a 1992 film directed by rock star and singer/songwriter John Mellencamp from a script by celebrated American author Larry McMurtry of Lonesome Dove and Terms Of Endearment fame. The film got a very limited release, but the soundtrack album, released in 1991, half a year prior to the film, got all the more attention. It's a good collection of songs by the likes of Mellencamp himself, John Prine, Dwight Yoakam and Nanci Griffith, but one track shines above all the rest. "Sweet Suzanne" is credited to Buzzin' Cousins, a super group that unfortunately only recorded this one song, but then again that one song is better than what lots of bands do during an entire career. The "band" consists of John Mellencamp, Dwight Yoakam, John Prine, Joe Ely and James McMurtry, all of them trading lines throughout the song. Amazing!
