Lady Lamb the Beekeeper has covered Bob Dylan’s ‘All I Really Want to Do’ although she admits to Rolling Stone Magazine that she only recently heard Cher’s version which inspired this cover. Watch and download below:
Lady Lamb the Beekeeper is the musical moniker of Aly Spaltro. Aly primarily grew up in the south west –in Arizona and Nevada–where she spent most of her early childhood years, never more content than when she was making oldies mix tapes with a boombox & flashlight in her closet.
Aly and her family moved to Germany for two years–where she fell in love with the German language,–before settling in her home state of Maine in 2004.
She fell in love with more than a language for the first time in the southern part of Maine, in the same coastal town where her heart was first broken.
Out of these pangs and others came Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, a project which began solely as a means of self-expression & self-reflection during the long, dark winter of 2007 in the scalp of New England.
Lady Lamb the Beekeeper writes sprawling, lyric & melody-based songs about lost, true & unrequited love, nostalgia, nectarine meat, wolf maulings, plum crumb cake & mustard colors, death & Guatemala, airplane rides & airplane crashes, lusting & pining, aubergine & almond colored bedsheets, balance beams hidden in the woods, desert mountain ranges, dreams & nightmares, fawns & fawning, & occasionally “The Neverending Story.”
I sing because I need to sing and I sing because life is a mess and music is the most beautiful means of communication and self-expression for me both personally and with humanity.
Think about the first vinyl you ever bought, the first cassette you rewound & rewound. The albums that you’ve cried to, & regained your strength to. The albums that have shaped you & continue to shape you. The albums you blast in your car on long drives or play quietly as you fall asleep. The albums that make you happy and hopeful & empower you simply by entering your ears. There is a grace and uniqueness between humans making connections with one another through the intricacies, the delicacies, the rhythm & words in a song. This is something so precious, and something I seek to have and share with you.
