Cover songs are a tricky affair. Most of the time they’re uninspired karaoke versions, but every now and then someone comes up with one that takes the source material to a whole new place.
In the case of The Gourds version of Snoop Dogg’s seminal hit “Gin and Juice,” it’s a place that most will agree is great.
I’ve had this tune in my crate for some time now, but it was mis-labeled as being by Phish…which I believed for quite sometime until I found someone who claimed it was by the Barenaked Ladies. Then Andrew did some research and corrected me.
You’re a better digger than I, good sir.
