Live Ledge #246: Covers

It's been quite some time since I put together a show of cover tunes. Yet I still wondered if I had enough material to actually put one together.
I certainly did, and the vast majority of these tracks are from recent releases. It's a wide range of tunes, from Fucked Up covering the Grateful Dead to Sturgill Simpson performing a Nirvana tune. Most impressive (to me at least) are the two tracks I played from a record I obtained just hours before tonight's broadcast. Who knew that former Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos had a new solo album? Who would have predicted it would be this great? I certainly never did.
It's no Sgt. Pepper, but Greetings From Bunezuella is great fun. Carlos and his famous friends (Alexandro Escovedo, Dave Pirner, Robert Pollrd, etc.) are clearly having a ball remaking songs by the likes of the Who, Dylan, and the Bee Gees.
The only non-covers in tonight's show are a couple of tracks recorded two weeks ago at the Wreckless Eric show. The almost two hour performance was fabulous, and I'm happy to share a couple of my favorite moments.
