Grace Potter and The Allman Brothers at Comcast Center last Friday

No need for a review, I reviewed Grace Potter last month, and there is precious little I could say that has not been said before about The Allman Brothers. I will share this video of Grace and Benny Yurco on stage with Les Brers playing The Weight. Trully moving…even if the smartphone video howls and is generally a C- effort (but it’s still the best of the stuff I find on Youtube).

Friday Music Video: Levon Helm on Letterman

Levon Helm, playing “Tennessee Jed” off his “Electric Dirt” album live on the David Letterman Show in 2009.  Tremendous version, great sound, well worth the listen…

For those who don’t know, Levon doesn’t travel much anymore.  You should check out the Wikipedia page to read up on what’s going on, esp. the Midnight Ramble, then check out his own site.

He currently plays with a who’s who list of top musicians, many of whom you’ll recognize from past Friday Music Videos here.  People like (via Wikipedia):

Friday Music Video: Blue Touch – One More Kiss

Here’s one off the new album from Blue Touch, out of the UK – a band that’s lived the blues and it shows.  Here is the music video from their latest album, “Outstanding” (which would be my rating) entitled “One More Kiss”.  For my Atex friends, the bass player is none other than our own Merv Griffin!
