Daryl's House

Live from Daryl's House is on the Palladia Network and all over YouTube.  Featuring Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates from his home studio in Pawling, NY along with his guests it's worth a look and listen.  The hour long show consists of live music, switching between Hall & Oates tunes and those of the guest star and some eating and cooking.  THC thinks of him as younger than those rock stars from the 1960s but it turns out Daryl is 68 and still sounds great.

Here's a couple of cuts.  First up is Cee Lo Green (1/2 of Gnarls Barkley) with Daryl contemplating the eternal moral dilemma faced by humankind performing I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) a song THC didn't care for when first done by Hall & Oates but this version is terrific.  Next is Paris, a song by and with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals along with Daryl.  If you'd like to hear more from Grace listen to this cover of Cortez The Killer with an unearthly guitar solo from Joe Satriani and haunting horn from Willy Waldman.  It's not only the best of the approximately 37,522 covers of the song, it surpasses Neil Young's original.
