Family Dog at the Great Highway
Very different from most Dark Stars - ethereal beauty replaced by casual, easy going grooves. It's too laid back to hold your attention all the way through - the best versions of DS have a depth, variety and intensity that keep you spellbound from start to finish. It's not Dark Star-ish enough to be a GREAT Dark Star, but that's also what makes it worth hearing. It surprises you, and challenges how you expect the song to sound.
