Discovery: Jim van der Zee

Fans of Don Mclean might recognise this tune, as it’s a cover of one of the famed singer-songwriter’s most beautiful tracks.

By Jane Howkins

Van der Zee does the song justice, adding a subtle justice to things that isn’t quite present in the original song, blasphemous as they may seem to Mclean fans. It’s such a beautiful song anyway, but van der Zee adds an extra something special to things with his version of Vincent, and because of that we highly recommend our readers check this version out!
