Covers: 4th of July

Dave Alvin wrote “4th of July” which was recorded when he was briefly in the band X on 1987’s See How We Are.  The lead vocals are by X’s John Doe. He has continued to perform it during his solo career.  The last link below is to a live performance which included David Hildalgo on backing vocals and guitar and the great Flaco Jimemez on accordion.
