Listening Post



This is seriously one of the best covers I think anyone's ever done. It just floored me the first time I heard it.

Here's Jose Gonzalez, turning Massive Attack's Teardrop from dreamy into powerful and passionate.

thanks, that was beautiful.

it reminds me of something from the album "a space in time" by Ten Years After.

I heard him play this live in DC a few months ago and was blown away. One man and a guitar should not be able to produce so many different sounds without the aid of another hand or three. He can pull sound out of a guitar that I didn't think was possible.

I love this guy, I somehow found his cd 2 years ago, and it was the perfect soundtrack while I was reading some 1930's noir.
