The opening track of this week’s edition is another version of one of my favorite tunes, Low Spark of High Heeled Boys (acoustic and electric versions from Mr. Haynes have been featured here too). This one from John Bell and his friends — Jeff Sipe and Leftover Salmon’s Drew Emmitt — came as the encore to a solo acoustic set, although the Colonel put in an appearance as well. A few months ago the old shuffle player followed that great cover with The Band’s Smoke Signal, and it just worked so well I had to share it in that order.
For the second half, we’re treated to the lovely Grace Potter and Friends in the Jam Room of this year’s Jam Cruise — they perform a pretty hoppin’ Mystery Train. And, finally, the mix ends with Chris Duarte covering Band of Gypsy’s Who Knows, one of the funkiest rockers I know. Enjoy!
