strange covers - Counting Crows


Counting Crows new lp Underwater Sunshine is a covers lp. There is a mixture of the obvious ( yet another bob yawn dylan cover), the unknown ( a number of bands who came up from the same Californian scene as Counting Crows ) and the pleasantly surprising (the version of Teenage Fanclub's Start Again is a real highlight).


What does come across ids their complete love of music. Adam Duritz the lead singer enthusiasm shines through as he talks through the reasons behind the various song choices, coming across as just a genuine music fan).

You can hear the lp here where you can also read the sleeve notes (as already mentioned check out Start Again or their version of Travis's Coming Around)
