Blackberry Smoke has released another single from their current covers EP “Live From Capricorn Sound Studios”. This time they have done a cover of Little Minton’s Grits Ain’t Groceries and joining them is Jimmy Hall & The Black Bettys. The band has made it their own by giving it a southern rock vibe versus the original which is a bit more soulful and has horns. I think both versions are excellent but I do like the rocking sound the band has brought to us on this.
Hall’s vocals are perfect for the song. This version of the song is also about a minute longer than the original and that just makes this that much more special. Again, I don’t see how you can be disappointed with this one. Everything about this is pure joy and a great way to enjoy anytime of a day. The video shows the band performing and watching them is always great to see what they bring the song. A great job by everyone involved. Check it out below.
