By Ryan V:
Cover of “Up from Under” by the Wallflowers. I did this with a freeware webcam recorder – sorry about that… Thus the audio and video are kinda crappy, plus that annoying watermark. But the vocals/guitar is all me, just a bit delayed.
** EDITOR’S NOTE: **
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s extend a warm welcome to the latest addition to the Guest Sessions team of performers… Ryan!
Ryan’s choice is an excellent one for an acoustic cover song. In fact, after all the Breach covers that Jeff Copperthite and I have done over the years (“Sleepwalker,” “Hand Me Down,” “I’ve Been Delivered”), we’ve somehow managed to miss this little gem. Breach really is an underrated album with a wide selection of beautiful songs, and Dylan and company strike a perfect balance between electric and acoustic work.
As Ryan points out above, the quality lags a bit on this music video. Still, I think you’ll find it to be a solid, faithful cover version with some great fingerpicking. He’s been watching the Laptop Sessions for some time, and I’m proud to welcome him to the blog via this performance. Seeing as how we were less than ten days away from the one year anniversary of our last Wallflowers post (Jeff’s February 27, 2009 cover of “I’ve Been Delivered”), we thank Ryan for sending this in just in time…
Here’s to many more great cover song music videos!
