Afghan Whigs Tribute: Danny Saul covers “What Jail is Like”
When we first solicited recordings for the Afghan Whigs tribute album, we were overwhelmed with the response. There were a number of songs that we loved but just couldn’t fit onto the album. Over the next few days, we’ll be making some of our favorite non-album tracks available for download.
Danny Saul: “What Jail is Like”
Manchester’s Danny Saul (Myspace | Website) recorded a simple, poetic version of “What Jail is Like”, changing the propulsive rhythm of the original for the subtlety of arpeggio-driven acoustic picking.
“What Jail is Like” garnered more submissions than any other song in the Afghan Whigs’ catalog. Danny’s was by far the most subversive and stylistically unique take of those we received and has become a personal favorite.
