Covering Your Wednesdays: Grace Potter

I posted a song by Grace Potter a couple of months ago and meant to include this amazing cover of hers with it, so here it is; but in order to appreciate the cover to its fullest, I think you have to see it for yourself. Here is a clip of Grace Potter covering Bob Dylan’s “Cortez the Killer” with fellow musicians Joe Satriani, Steve Kimock, Reed Mathis, Willy Waldman, and Stephen Perkins at the Jammy’s in 2006. By mixing soul, grunge, and some amazing trumpet playing, this has become the best cover of this song that I’ve ever heard. Enjoy.

  1. I found this in flac format and it's amazing. When you hear her voice played through our vacuum tube output cd player it literally makes the hair stand up on your arms and gives you "goose bumps".
    You can totally feel the emotion coming out of her voice. She is amazing for sure! It also doesn't hurt the effort with Joe Satriani and company on the stage with her.
