While I absolutely love everything else Dan Levinson has ever recorded - I have to say I don't care for his cover of the Six Brown Brothers record. I have one of the originals and his re-arangement of it sounds seriously lame. To the extent I had to check to see if thats who actually did it.

You probably have one of the opiginals too - play them back to back and see what I mean.

Rest of the show was as good as always - it was just this one recording that stood out.
