Thanks to one of my wonderful readers, I’ve received two more Shim Sham shows, 5/5/00 and 4/27/02. And he’s received a copy of The Editors’ new album! Thanks, dude! You all owe him thanks. Download, thank him, and then, if you’ve got any more shows, SEND THEM TO ME! You, too, might get the new Editors CD--I have another one to give away. And if I run out of those, I’m sure I can figger something out for you . . .
I didn’t get a whole lot of feedback on the first show. I’m posting this one now. Do you like these enough to want the May 2000 one as well? It’s got Crow covers of Led Zeppellin and Cracker, among others.
Some singles and the zips.
Shim Sham 4/27/02
Blues Run the Game (Paul Simon Cover)
Crossing Muddy Water (John Hiatt cover). Adam actually recorded this for an album called, “The I-10 Chronicles,” a fantastic, little-known Americana collection that’s now out of print but is well worth seeking out.
Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell).
Start Again (Death Cab for Cutie cover)
Have You Seen Me Lately?
Four White Stallions
Someday I Will Treat You Good
You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere (Byrds)
Amie (Pure Prairie League)
If I Could Give All My Love (Richard Manuel is Dead). The great thing about this recording is the story at the end, which is actually the intro to “Carriage,” where Adam talks about “an ex-girlfriend” and how hot it is to have sex with an ex. If my ex was Jennifer Aniston, I’d probably think that, too . . .
I Wanna Be Sedated (Ramones).
Return of the Grievous Angel (Alan Parson cover).
Oooh La La (Faces cover).
For the Sake of the Song.
Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain.
