This week’s show was interesting to put together, partially because I did so from airplanes traveling here and there. One of the more personal songs this week was Caetano Veloso’s “Os Argonautes,” because one of the places I traveled to was Batumi, Georgia, home of the Golden Fleece that Jason and the Argonauts were sent to retrieve. There’s a big statue of Medea there, by the way.
But by far, the track that just blew me away was George Benson’s cover of the Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun/I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” from his album, “The Other Side of Abbey Road,” which covers all of the Beatles’ “Abbey Road.”
Here’s the setlist, in Google Docs spreadsheet format.
