Deeply satisfying and melodic. I think I like VH's rendition better than the original.

This is almost better than the original. His cover of Iggy Pop's "No Sense of Crime"

is better than the original, but that ain't hard to do.

Yeah, I saw a video of the Leno performance. It was okay.

Thanks fer posting this, P.

Brilliant cover. I love the Curtis Mayfield vibe to the song.

Yeah! I was actually at the taping. He sounded great live in studio, but something was wrong his mic on the broadcast!

I know what you mean, I found out that's intentional. He did the same thing with his mic in the KCRW session. Check it out - http://www.kcrw.com/music...20van_hunt

Right.

He had some sort of vocal effect/processor/signal going thru his live mic.

When is this board going start admitting that he's putting together a music

legacy much more interesting than Prince?

Seek out the original on Youtube and tell me that Hunt didn't transform a mediocre

tune into something that could've been placed on Stand! or There's A Riot Goin' On.

Nice catch. Your right. I'm suprised I didn't catch that live. I was wondering if it was an intentional effect, seem to major of a thing for the people at the Tonight Show not to notice.
