  • Their live version outdid zeppelin live version, emotionally clear rendition, good job , Heart.
    Sol cat song is my favorite.
    Great to hear Yo lo tengo again,
    And Richard Simpson is good but we heard better from him.

  • As always the Heart rendition of Stairway clearly will be in the top of 2013… but for now I will go with Free Energy – Hold You Close – bouncy energy. Good way to start this week, Chris.

  • I’m going to go with Free Energy and/or American Authors this week. Is it OK to have TWO favorite songs?

    Thanks for the show! I look forward to it every week. It’s my car washing music.

  • Trying to get Free Energy for a charity concert. I think they would be perfect.

    Loving The Lone Bellows too. Thanks Kevin.

    and yes Joe you can like as many as you’d like.

    Now go tell someone about the glorious music being played on next every week.


  • I’m on my second listen and…Suede/Barriers just caught my ear. Pretty cool.
    Loved Heart also…but then…have always loved them.
    Oh wait….Sol Cat might be on to something!

    While I’m here…it is the day after Black Taxi charity show….and….OMG and WTF…Great show! What a phenomenal band! Can’t say enough good things about them!
