Thanks to the magic of iMovie … here’s the Slaid Cleaves cover of the Fred Eaglesmith song I was talking about earlier:
Special challenge: I’ll send an El Vado Motel bumper sticker to the first Route 66 enthusiast (other than Ron) who can correctly identify the location of every gas station in this video. If nobody gets it before midnight next Thursday, I’ll post the answers.
This is not my favorite thing Slaid Cleaves has ever done, but it’s pretty good, and his best work — a great cover of Fred Eaglesmith’s “White Rose” that he recorded several years ago — isn’t on YouTube.
In this video, he’s playing one of my favorite venues: the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill in U. City.
