The Grip Weeds vs. Matt Piucci vs. Yellow Hand
The Grip Weeds:

Matt Piucci:

Yellow Hand:


Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

    Tough call here. All three cover versions were excellent. I was taken with Yellow Hands very CSNY-esque vocal harmonies, and I really enjoyed the slowed down psychedelic feel of Matt Piucci’s cover, but I gotta go with the Grip Weeds simply for sheer competence. This is a very talented band in every way. Never heard of them before, but you can cover me impressed. They get my vote.

  2. Kerry Black says:

    I was pleased to find a perhaps lesser-known Buffalo Springfield track today.

    I liked all versions, thought I could make a decent case for each, so I listened to all a second time.

    Eventually went with Grip Weeds, but I could have gone another way if I had been lobbied a little harder by the reps.

    I liked all three versions, especially those by The Grip Weeds and Matt Piucci. Piucci added some very nice eerie effects that I’m sure Neil would approve of. But I think he took it about a minute too long. Can’t find anything negative to say about The Grip Weeds’ terrific take.
