Good evening and I hope this past Tuesday has found you well. Tonight I add another new band to the category page here on our awesome site.
“Live” is our focus this evening, and one of their hit songs “Lightning Crashes” is the video tonight. I had attempted to record this video last Friday, but my voice was shot from the previous video I had recorded (which some person on Youtube rated 1 star – to my bewilderment). Therefore, here’s what I was able to get out of me this evening.
The song is off the album “Throwing Copper”, which I happily own. I do own albums 2 through 5 from this band, and the album tonight’s song is from was the first one I bought. I remember burning a copy for my car, and writing on the blank CD the letters “Cu” with some trail marks behind it.
…I’ll give some of you a second or two on that one…
This isn’t my best, or worst performance. I’ve had a tough month, so I apologize if it isn’t my best. However, it works and it goes to show that I continue to have a penchant for recording 5 minute songs (tends to get frustrating doing retakes for long songs like this).
Tomorrow Jim will show us what he’s got in his library! I can’t wait!
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up. We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session. We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and original music blog again in the future. But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!
