Here are a few excellent covers & live songs that I’ve been meaning to throw out there by Counting Crows, from the exhaustive fansite Anna Begins. This is a band that consistently amazes me with the variety of their covers, tributes, and influences. Good ear.
- Blues Run The Game, Jackson C. Frank cover – this is a beautiful song (open link in new window)
- California Stars, Woody Guthrie/Wilco cover (right click, save target as)
- Outside Chance, The Turtles cover (right click, save target as)
And then one more, not a cover, but a newish non-album track from their best-of CD, Films About Ghosts:
- She Don’t Want Nobody Near (live at the China Club – open link in new window)
