The Dark End of the Street

Aside from a few songs ("A Long December," "Mr. Jones") that formed the soundtrack of my middle school experience, I don't count myself as a Counting Crows fan. Mostly, I haven't paid them any attention. Even at the peak of their popularity, when I was about 12, I mistook their ubiquitous songs for the latest from the Gin Blossoms or Collective Soul.

All that said (methinks I protest too much), I thought it was worth passing along some acoustic recordings by Crows frontman Adam Duritz (via I Am Fuel). What grabbed my attention was his cover of "The Dark End of the Street," one of my favorite songs by the indomitable James Carr.
