By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to your Original Wednesday edition of The Laptop Sessions. Today I bring you another great original song from “Homestead’s Revenge” by Masters of the Universe.
I am bringing you the song “These Streets”, a live favorite. I have noticed lots of heads bobbing when we play this song live, and this will be among the songs we are going to play live this coming Friday at George’s II restaurant. I really love the riff of this song, and I was very happy to receive permission to record it for the sessions.
I really tried to belt this one out on an acoustic. It really is meant to be an electric guitar song, but I think this version does kick it quite well. It also runs perfectly in the album, and the harmonies work perfectly in the recording. If you have not checked out “Homestead’s Revenge”, you really do need too.
Track 1 week continues tomorrow with another song by Jim, so be sure to come back for that!
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!
