I was just five or ten seconds into Shakey Ground when I knew that I liked the version that you played. Very funky! Thanks for playing it.

I have just two recommendations for the upcoming Light show:

First, Turn the Light Off by the up and coming Brooklyn-based Americana band, Yarn.

Second, Blinded By the Light. Manfred Mann made this Bruce Springsteen song well known, but the best cover might be by Bruce himself. Give a listen to the version on the Bruce Springsteen with the Sessions Band album Live In Dublin. A completely different take!

So many “Light” songs! A few suggestions:
We’ll Be the Light–The Dirty Guv’nahs
Into the Light–Alice Peacock
Beacon Light–Ween
Little Red Light–Fountains of Wayne
I Saw the Light–Todd Rundgren
