Covering Your Tracks – 36

When the wife and I first tied the knot, we used to take road trips to her biological father’s place in Missouri. His name was Jack (may he RIP), and he was a musician. He’d played on big stages in Vegas, and in corners in small town bars. I even had the pleasure of playing guitar along with him on a couple of occasions.

Most of the time I would accompany him on the Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See.” A great song. A great drinking song. And we did a lot of drinking.

Black Stone Cherry‘s latest, Between the Devil & The Deep Blue Sea, which drops on 31 May, includes a cover of “Can’t You See,” and it is a crackin’ one. The track has been rearranged, and beefed up with that BSC country rock sound. Different? Yes. Better? Mmmm, no. Good? Hell yes. And it did bring back some truly fond memories of Summers in Missouri.
