TUESDAY BLUES!! Counting Crows - Blues Run The Game

Counting Crows - Blues Run The Game


This Jackson C Frank song has been covered by many artists that I could spend a few weeks writing about the different versions. Notable covers have been recorded by Bert Jansch, Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake.  However, for me, I'll always think of the Counting Crows version.

In 2002, I took a few friends to see Counting Crows live at the Bristol Academy.  It was one of the most mesmerising gigs I've been to. However, it was this song that we all kept talking about on our journey home to Wales.  So when, a few weeks later, it appeared on the single American Girls it became a must have and has been a favourite of mine ever since.

I've never been a fan of the Counting Crows but this is excellent, particularly the live version. Tidy butt!

I'm not sure I'd heard this track before but I like it. Saw the crows live at Vfest 2001 and they blew me away. Unforgettable!
