Cover and Original

Working on getting back on track with my regular features - I haven't had time to compare anyone or do an evolution, but they will be coming back sometime soon. In the meantime, I'll continue with Cover and Original.
This week's a rediscovered song, Right Place, Wrong Time, originally by Dr. John. The two covered versions are by a band called Vietnam and one of my favorites, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Vietnam's version is an interesting take on the song that seems to drawl, while Grace Potter imitates the song a bit more, with her own flavor to it.
