    One of my favorite clips on "Cabin Fever." Highly recommend the entire DVD.

    Thanks for that; one of my favorite bands playing one of my favorite songs.

    Keep trying to find this DVD in stores locally but can't, guess I'm going to have to order it online.

    Can't get past it sounding like Marshall Tucker:
    "Can't you see
    What that woman
    She been doin' to me"

    I'm pretty sure "Sweet Nothin'" came first.

    And "Dear Mr. Fantasy" came before either one of them. I'm sure there were others before it, for that matter.

    I like.

    i'm all for more good music posted on this message board like this and less shredder-worn out classic rock-smooth jazz-suburban middle aged blues. :)

    Rich plays a little nod to Dear Mr. Fantasy in this recording towards the end of Luther's slide solo.

    I think this is one of the best songs to come out of the Cabin Fever sessions, even if it's a cover. They just absolutely nail it.

    Wow!
    Those guys are so good. Cannot say enough about the drummer. Rich Robinson should sing more often. I do not know who writes their songs, but Chris Robinson definitely does not carry The Black Crowes with his voice.

    A really heartfelt performance by Rich-saw him sing it at Atlantic City and Asbury Park. Great phaser sounds live from Rich's Moog 12-stage and Chris playing guitr with a Small Stone. Beautiful and very poignant lyrics. "Say a word for Jimmy Brown...He ain't got nuthin' at all..."

    That may be the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

    A band I used to be in did a medley of "Sweet Child of Mine", "Can't You See", and "Sweet Nothin".....that was fun. And yes, "Sweet Nothin" definitely preceded "Can't You See".

    No. Sorry, that wasn't my point. I'm just (unfortunately) so familiar with the Tucker song from hearing it a zillion times on the radio through the years, it's all I can think of when I hear the Crowes (or anybody) do this song.
