Michael Hall & Band

Hace ya algún tiempo me topé en Dime A Dozen con una versión de Neil que me llamó su atención. Y no solo porque es una de mis temas preferidos, sino por la escasez de las versiones con que me he topado. Se trataba de Danger Bird, y el músico se llama Michael Hall:

>> member of THE WILD SEEDS & THE SETTERS, one of the most underrated American lyricists & musicians -
AWESOME NEIL YOUNG COVER "Danger Bird" - UNCIRCULATED <<

Así ponía el “sembrador” de este concierto. Y claro ¿quién se aguanta?. Me puse manos a la obra y no me ha decepcionado. Hall es un excelente músico y tiene algunos temas sobresalientes.

Te lo recomiendo (aunque sólo sea por el cover de Neil)
