Counting Crows live covers

Here are a few excellent covers & live songs that I've been meaning to throw out there by Counting Crows, from the exhaustive fansite Anna Begins. This is a band that consistently amazes me with the variety of their covers, tributes, and influences. Good ear.

"California Stars" is actually a Woody Guthrie tune. It is just performed by Wilco. Great site, by the way!

well, actually to be precise it's woody guthrie *lyrics* set to a tune written by wilco for those lyrics. it's from the mermaid avenue collaborations with billy bragg and wilco building songs around lyrics that woody left behind.
