Good evening to everyone at www.laptopsessions.com. It’s Jeff for your Monday edition, and it’s time to go back to the favorite band and to exhaust all their singles from “Bringing Down The Horse”. I get the privilege of bringing you “Three Marlenas”.

I also bring it to you while being shy of a few pounds. You’ll notice I am now clean-shaven, and that is because it was the agreement with my wife. If I purchased a new amplifier, then I would have to shave the beard. Speaking of which, you will see my Behringer BXL1800 tomorrow when I let you know what I think of it.

Anyway, while this song is quite simple to play, it tells an interesting story and I like the song a lot. “Bringing Down The Horse” is a terrific album and you should consider giving it a listen if you can.

The Wallflowers are a popular band here at www.laptopsessions.com. I’m sure you’ll hear more of them in future sessions. Until then, enjoy “Three Marlenas”, and come back tomorrow for Jim’s latest and greatest Laptop Session!

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!

“Back to California” (Wallflowers Cover)

Seeing as how the Wallflowers are coming to town tonight, I thought it only appropriate to play one of my favorite tunes off their most recent album, Rebel, Sweetheart. If you are hearing “Back to California” here for the first time, please find and listen to the album version. The real version is one of the most rocking songs I’ve ever heard from Jakob Dylan and the boys.

I recorded more takes of this cover song music video than I should have, in my desire to recreate it acoustically and yet maintain the same spirit of the studio recording. Just like “Everything I Need,” this was certainly a vocal workout–this time, not because of the range but due to the emotion/inflection I tried to achieve while my allergies are in full swing…

Well, I’m really excited about going to see the Wallflowers show at Foxwoods tonight with Jim and Mike. This is one of my all-time favorite bands, and because they tour so infrequently these days, I was afraid I would never get to see them.

We’ll definitely report back on the Wallflowers show. For now, I hope you enjoy the acoustic cover song music video — I hope you’ll rate it and/or leave a comment.

See you next session!

P.S. I can’t wait to hear more new tracks from Jakob Dylan’s upcoming solo album, Seeing Things! Maybe they’ll translate into some new acoustic covers for the Laptop Sessions music video blog soon… 🙂


“I Threw It All Away” (Bob Dylan Cover)

It’s back-to-back Bob Dylan songs for me. This one comes from his 1969 country-rock album, complete with “Lay, Lady, Lay” voice! For those of you WCJM.com Free Internet Radio fans out there, try not to confuse this with John Daley’s trademark tones…

I’ll be tapping into some new artists in the next few posts, and I’d like to really kick off the Christmas season with some holiday tunes (coming soon!). As always, thanks for “tuning in”!!

“Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town” (Pearl Jam Cover)

Welcome to Monday’s Laptop Session, and I’m back with another Pearl Jam song, this time going back to their 2nd album “Vs.”

This song also earns the title “Longest Song Title ever”, as I couldn’t even fit it into the Title field on YouTube (however, here it’s fine).

The song is “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town”, and is a song that Scott & I have played for a long time. Usually, we’ll swap instruments and he’ll play the bass to it while I do my half-ass guitar part (well, compared to him. He is the guitarist in the band after all).

This song is very sweet and easy to listen too. I hope you enjoy it.

Stay tuned for Jim’s new session tomorrow, and see what Chris brings out of the woodwork for Original Wednesday.

Oh, and I’m ever so close to the 3,000 view mark! Thank you everybody for making the Laptop Sessions such a success.

Please visit http://laptopsessions.com/ for a new session per day in 2008. Also, remember my new EP “Greenlight” will debut on February 24th.
