And the answer is yes. (Most of the time)
I agree with alot of what you said, Bill. I can't say I hated any of the covers, but there were times where I would've rather heard something different, and there were times that when said cover was played, it just didn't have the energy that it was supposed to have, or it didn't have the energy that it had on that one show that you have from Cornell or Alpine or Merriweather or where ever. For me, that's where the let down is. I hear a version of a certain song on a bootleg I have, and then when they play it live when I'm there, I am expecting this kick ass version to come out, and all I get is a tired or unenthused version, which send me on a pee break or something.
But, that's the silver lining in the touch of grey. That's what keeps me coming back. It's kind of like the game of golf, I guess. You hit one good shot, and that one good shot every time you play keeps you coming back for more.
Play music, expand the mind, inspire...
