Today we launch a new department: We hope that this space will provide a slew of quality music with which you can properly start your week. And to begin this new beginning, let’s give some love to the title of this downloadable column…
Welcome to Stormy Mondays, heavy hitting music for Monday movement. This week’s montage opens with the namesake, a dynamically moody version from the end of last summer at the House of Blues in Atlantic City. Next up is a rare live version of David Crosby’s Cowboy Story with Garcia and Lesh on hand. It has a great little set-up from the songwriter before the ensemble attacks with howling guitar and vocals — Jerry’s playing is simply brutal. The third track, a live Down By The River, is right in the same vein, with a deep groove and weighty tone. Enjoy!
