"the indigo girls - love by you - various cover versions (1988-1994)

here's a companion to the indigo girls album i posted last week. that one covered mostly original songs done in the studio from 1988 to 1990. this is all live performances, from concerts, tv, or radio show appearances, and all cover versions. it also covers a longer time period, from 1988 to 1994.

i like the indigo girls both because of their songwriting and their musical talent, especially their intertwining harmonies and emily salier's tasteful lead guitar playing. unfortunately, their songwriting can be hit or miss, in my opinion. but when they cover great songs, you can't go wrong with their performances, especially since they usually play the songs in the acoustic style that they excel in. this is mostly an acoustic album, with a few exceptions, like their rocking version of neil young's "cortez the killer."

this album has two types of cover songs, in my opinion. mostly, they do famous, classic songs, such as "summertime," "american tune," and "melissa." but they also do a lot of covers of much less well known songs, often by artists from georgia that they know personally. this includes "white house blues," "love by you," and "tired of talkin'."

the sound quality is generally excellent, even though all of the songs come from bootlegs. one partial exception is their version of "good times (let the good times roll)." since it's a bit rough, i've included it as a bonus track.
