"Sometimes it's great to play someone else's music and try to make it your own. Sometimes it's great just because it's fun." Wise words from Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz that embody the philosophy behind their 2012 album Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation). An album filled with their favorite covers of artists as diverse as Teenage Fanclub, Gram Parsons and Fairport Convention. They're actually showing the audience that they could compete with the artists by making the songs sound like the ones from their own repertoire. It's the fun and excitement you can feel in their recording of artists they're following for years.
The American rock band Counting Crows gained popularity by releasing their debut album, August and Everything After (1993). The album features their biggest single hit "Mr. Jones".
The Underwater Sunshine vinyl package includes printed innersleeves with liner notes about the songs and is available as a limited pressing of 1.000 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl.
