Could be great, but playing with some pretty sacred material here, so hope they do it right.

this should be interesting. i DL'ed some of those MMJ covers, including the all the best, it was pretty meh.

i cant wait to hear old crow cover angel from montgomery. when i saw prine last year, maybe 2 yrs ago now? my dad gave me and the wife 3rd row tix for the massey hall show, it was amazzzzzing. he had this great female fiddler open up the show, carrie rodriguez, and also sing a few duets with him at the end of the show, man what a great concert. first time my wife was in massey, she was blown away by the nice acoustics.
