“Telephone” The Morning Pages (Lady Gaga)

Posted on November 18, 2010

Brooklyn roots-rockers The Morning Pages illustrate just how far a Macbook with iLife and a YouTube channel will get you in this world. Catchy country-rock groove that I would actually listen to on the way to work.

“Two Out of Three” Jamey Johnson (Meat Loaf)

Posted on October 22, 2010

Jamey Johnson is hereby forgiven for co-writing “Honky Tonk Badonka Donk.” Of course, if push came to shove, he wouldn’t even have to do this awesome cover for me to forgive him. He’s old-school country and I dig it.

“When the Stars Go Blue” The Corrs & Bono (Ryan Adams)

Posted on December 10, 2009

Yeah, I did the Corrs. Three beautiful Irish sisters who can sing pop songs while playing traditional instruments. Sorry, can’t forget the brother is OK too. Ryan Adams puts out so much material. One hopes that covers by the likes of Tim McGraw and these children of Ireland help turn people on to the rest of his catalog. Just stay away from “Jacksonville City Lights” unless you want to be really depressed.

“Amos Moses” Dale Watson (Jerry Reed)

Posted on December 04, 2009

Primus probably has the best known cover of this swamp rock classic. But Dale Watson, who is trying his best to keep real country alive and well, does a good job. In fact, this wasn’t part of his set. A fan screamed it out and he obliged.

I posted this because it is about killin’ gators. Roll Tide tomorrow y’all!

“Wild Horses” Flying Burrito Brothers (Rolling Stones)

Posted on December 02, 2009

And we’re back! Sorry for the lapse in posts. We moved into a new home and unpacking boxes isn’t the only thing I’ve been putting off. Now back to the show…

Maybe it is the cold, dreary weather over the last two days. But for whatever reason, I’ve been digging on Gram Parsons, Flying Burrito Brothers and other such “Cosmic American” music as Gram called it. Now we seem to have decided on Alt Country or Americana. Whatever it is, I like it.

Gram is responsible for evangelizing country music to his rock and folk music friends when country wasn’t cool. What they created is incredible. Probably the most important early rock convert was Keith Richards. The Stones responded with this tune. I think Gram’s melancholy voice brings something that I’ve never heard from Mick Jagger.

“Fortunate Son” Todd Snider (Creedance Clearwater Revival)

Posted on September 24, 2009

Todd Snider is a great songwriter. Period. Up there with Tom T Hall, Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman. It all starts with being a great story teller. That’s evident on all of his albums. His sense of humor is great too as you’ll find out when he introduces his set or tunes his strings. of But he can also do a great cover. This is just what a great cover is all about. Here’s Todd with “Fortunate Son” from Creedence Clearwater Revival.

“Blue” The Thorns (The Jayhawks)

Posted on September 12, 2009

Indie/alternative rock supergroup (really?) The Thorns consisted of Matthew Sweet, Peter Droge and Shawn Mullins. They recorded one album to my knowledge around 2003. Here they are with a Jayhawks number. For my wife who says the Jayhawks version is better, even though we are both fans of Matthew Sweet & Co.

“Wagon Wheel” Southern Drive (Old Crow Medicine Show/Bob Dylan)

Posted on September 08, 2009

Interesting story to this song. People like to say that Bob Dylan wrote it but that’s only half true. He wrote the chorus for the western movie “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid” and left it incomplete. Ketch Secor from Old Crow Medicine Show wrote verses to go with Dylan’s choruses and the rest is southern liberal arts school sorority chick history.

Here’s some band called Southern Drive on the campus at Southern Methodist University doing a superb cover, making it their own. Good job y’all. This is the perfect first entry for Open Mic Mondays.
