The Guest Sessions tonight comes at you with a great ELO tune written by the one and only Jeff Lynne. “Turn To Stone” is an ambitious tune and definitely one that’s hard to capture just using an acoustic guitar. But, my friends, Mr. Les Groby has done it here with this acoustic cover song music video. His sweet singing voice and solid playing have made this just the second ever Guest Session here on the Laptop Sessions music video blog!
Here’s what Les had to say about his submission:
“I love finding good songs hiding under complex arrangement and production. Solo performers rarely cover ELO, but under their lavish recordings are some good, simple songs that work well solo.”
And isn’t that the the essence of the Laptop Sessions right there? I tell you, Jim’s videos with the most views are the ones where he took a very lavish song and turned it into an acoustic solo performance. And that’s what Les has done here with this fine cover song. We hope that you’ll continue sending in your submissions, as a new video will be featured once a week here on the best music video blog ever created- the Laptop Sessions! Congratulations Les!
