Kitchen Concerts - Sweet Emotion

Once again Dan Neer of XM 40, my favorite DJ in all the world, turned me on to a very cool rendition of a great song. This is a version of Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion like you have never heard, by famed guitarist Leo Kottke. Now, being the music lover that I am, I had HEARD of Leo Kottke but never really "Knew" him. I am now a huge fan.

I think you'll agree that this is one sweet version of a rockin' tune. I've also included Aerosmith's version for you purists..

Have a wonderful weekend!!



Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon

It certainly was different. And neat. Geez,I haven't heard Leo mentioned for decades. Good find.

Thanks Pug..I thought it was a good find myself. I hadn't heard Leo either in years...really wasn't familiar with his music..knew the name, but not the music ya know?

Now I'm a big fan!

Man I listened to both versions a number of times. Although I am used to the original, Leo's version was pretty darned awesome.

I've been a Leo fan for a long time. That guy can play guitar...and we're not talking guitar hero here either. Nice alternative version here.

Dan-o has always been one of my favs

Hey Dave, Thanks..I'll have to check it out.!

NYD - Yes...I keep listening to it as well and it sounds so fresh..I love that.. I just love when he sings the line " my get up and go must have got up and went" I love that!!

VE - Of course you are a fan of Leo...you have very ecclectic and good musical taste...

Bond - I've missed you....welcome back to blogland. Yeah Dan-o is special and he still signs off his show "This is Dan-o Hoppin on my surfboard up the west side highway...Mahalo"


HUGS!!
