  1. “We are all just prisoners here of our own device.” It’s one thing to change words in a cover intentionally. It’s another to record a song without looking up the correct lyrics. Irks me.

  2. The end of “Angel From Montgomery” has a verse from the Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree” tacked on at the end. What a nice surprise and a clever twist.

  3. Can’t always be sure if changed lyrics are accidental or intentional. there’s a Johnny Cash tribute album which has “they say I shot a man in Reno, but that was just a lie.” I hated it, but I’m assuming intentionality.

    “Indie hodgepodge in my hair” – is there a shampoo for that?

  4. Love how GYH throws in a verse from Carole King’s “Beautiful” right in the middle of Sara B’s “Beautiful Girl”. Just a lovely, melancholy, heart-wrenching rendition of this song.
