Del McCoury Band's "Vincent Black Lightning" from BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND

  • Am Vor 7 years

    Dauer: 05:55

    Taped 333-feet below ground, deep inside Tennessee's Cumberland Caverns, this 12-part "musical adventure" series features both well-established and top emerging artists within the broad spectrum of Bluegrass, Jamgrass, Roots & Americana genres.
    Band patriarch Del McCoury has impeccable traditional credentials, including an early-'60s stint with Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass, a 2010 National Heritage Fellowship, and 2011 induction into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. But the Grammy-winning singer/guitarist who personifies the "High Lonesome" sound also takes it to new frontiers playing with everyone from jam band Phish to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. As opry.com put it, McCoury has, "proven not to be a relic of bluegrass music's past, but an architect of its future."

Del delivers all the emotion of a potato, a great backing, just lacking any soul.

I love this take but for me my favorite will always be the Richard Thompson version

This is a classic by Richard Thompson and I do love the way this is arranged and played. What I don’t like is the condescending and I think disrespectful lack of knowledge about the song and the words which he gets wrong in several places. The Box Hill thing was mildly amusing but typical of American ignorance. Sorry but this song is worthy of more respect.

Del is a legitimate legend but he should at least acknowledge Richard Thompson at the beginning of the song. He doesn’t have to but he should.

Woooowwwww! One of my favorite songs, sung by one of my favorite bands. Had no idea they covered this Richard Thompson gem. That last verse is worth the price of admission, "Angels on Ariels, leather and chrome." Speaking of the price of admission, Del was in a generous mood tonight--he gave them four verses for the price of three;-)
