I'm a huge fan of Grace Potter, and today is Grace Potter day, with the concert review coming later today, and the following item that I'm about to post up.
This lady and her group is on fire. They've come up kicking and screaming, quite literally, on stage and man, it's a sight to see. They're one of the best new bands out there today, and hopefully, they're going up and up, because they're off to a great start.
This Is Somewhere, their latest album, was absolutely fantastic. However, they've since put out an incredible amount of music on their own through concerts, both covers of other songs, and some originals.
Disc 1: Grace Potter Live! The Originals
Over their past couple tours, the Nocturnals have unveiled an entire album's worth of songs, ranging from fast to slow, some stuff that I hope will make it onto an album sometime in the near future. Here's the best of the new songs:
1- I've Been Watching You
3- You Gotta Move
4- Every Mile
6- Sinking Man
9- Skinny Woman
10- Can't See Through
Disc 2: Grace Potter Live! The Covers
This girl and her band loves their influences and covers. The Beatles, Neil Young, Steve Miller, Jimi Hendrix, and a whole lot more are represented here in this fantastic lineup of cover songs.
1- Come Together (The Beatles)
2- Cortez The Killer (Neil Young)
3- Farmer John (Don & Dewey)
4- Jet Airliner (Steve Miller Band)
5- Who Knows? (Jimi Hendrix)
6- Live With Me (Rolling Stones)
7- Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley (Allen Toussaint)
8- No Expectations (Rolling Stones)
9- Getting In Tune (The Who)
10- Pain In My Heart (Otis Redding)
11- Ohio (Neil Young)
