True Blood Season 4 finale: Music - The Heavy Cover Blood Sweat & Tears for True Blood Finale

From KCRW DJ Gary Calamar and True Blood Music Supervisor Gary Calamar:

I was meeting with True Blood writer-producer Raelle Tucker to discuss music for the 4th season finale airing September 11. This ain’t just another brilliant True Blood episode — this is the SEASON FINALE baby.
Now, as all True Blood fans know, each episode is named after a song in the episode. It makes things interesting for a music supervisor. Raelle had thought of calling the episode “And When I Die” and using the Blood Sweat and Tears version of the great Laura Nyro composition, but didn’t think the vibe was quite right.
I suggested that we record a new version, True Blood style. Raelle and show creator Alan Ball said “dude go for it”
