• Rare live acoustic version of Mr Jones by the Counting Crows is incredible [video]
    Posted by on Aug 12th, 2011

    I’m rather enjoying these Friday morning music posts and today’s song is right up there in my top 10 of all time.

    It’s absolutely by far THE best version of the Counting Crows singing Mr Jones you will ever hear. Ever. And this grainy video filmed in New Yorks Chelsea Studios is the only one of it’s kind i could find on YouTube.

    Take note musicians of today..this is how you sing, you autotuned c*cktonsils.

    That version just gets me every time. Simply amazing. So unfortunate that the video is cut short near the end. The entire version can be heard HERE. Better sound quality, but no visuals.

    Check them out on youtube when doing the Howard Stern show. He always brow beats them into doing acoustic performances. Always amazing.
