It's a southern thang

Southern rock, that is! And that's the theme over at Dolly's this week.

Here's one of my favorite bands and a Southern Rock band from my generation, The Black Crowes. I know many people are familiar with them from their early days (Shake Your Money Maker, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion), but they've actually had a pretty long and illustrious career beyond that. This particular song is a single from their 2001 release Lions, and I love it so much because it's different from what you'd expect of the genre and sounds heavily inspired by southern gospel, blues, and the hippie music of the sixties.

(Edited to add: I didn't realize this "video" was 4+ hours; I only thought I had the first one!)
