Prior to his solo career, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams was a principal member of the alt-country group Whiskeytown. With violinist Caitlin Cary and a cast of other members, Whiskeytown issued three albums between 1995 and 2001, including their highly lauded sophomore LP Strangers Almanac in 1997.
Adams, Cary and bassist Jeff Rice and drummer Steven Terry recorded Strangers Almanac over the course of two sessions. During one of those periods they tracked a cover of “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. The recording of the Rumours song was eventually released with the deluxe reissue of Strangers Almanac.
Adams appeared with Whiskeytown on NPR’s World Cafe back in 1997. They played a rare live cover of “Dreams” as part of their set, listen to the live recording below:
