Long Distance Runaround

My dad was listening to the radio on his way to work and heard a cover of Long Distance Runaround. It was by the John Cowan Band. Has anyone heard of this before? He said there was some mandolin and banjo in it. He said it was pretty good. I'm trying to find out anything about it, but I cant find anything....

You can look up John Cowan on Amazon . . .

There's a sound sample of it too which I haven't listened to in case I wake the wife up with it!

I've listened to it. John Cowan, can't believe the name didn't ring a bell. He used to be with New Grass Revival who hit the bluegrass scene around the same time Bela Fleck did, I think. Man's got a kick ass voice!

My shitkicker husband was sitting here when I played the 30-second sample of LDR and he thinks John Cowan's version is "not as intense" ... well, that's a given. However, if you like country rock, you'd probably like this album. We listened to several of the samples and I'm probably going to wind up getting this for hubby at some point.

<font color=red><font face='Papyrus'>Yesrocks, with all due respect my friend, even though this guy does a YES number, which earns him at least a small degree of respect from the get-go, I will need to move this thread over to the Alternate Tunes forum fairly soon. No worries, I'll let it dry out here a bit longer.</font id='Papyrus'></font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>
