Bill Callahan and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy continue their collab-a-thon weekly series with this delicate version of Little Feat's "I've Been the One" from their 1971 debut. As always, they bring in a third collaborator for the music and this week it's Meg Baird. It's a spare, acoustic version of the song with Callahan on lead and Will Oldham singing backing vocals.
