Best Days - gem of a cover by Sean Nelson of Harvey Danger

Post by mizzuzjoja » 21 Sep 2016, 02:46

Sean Nelson, singer-songwriter of the sadly defunct Harvey Danger (ahem, "I'm not sick but I'm not well..."), put out an excellent solo LP in 2013 called Make Good Choices: http://reallyrecords.bigcartel.com/prod ... od-choices

It's truly a wonderful album, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Here's a sampler (video): https://vimeo.com/63297398

Superfans who pre-ordered the über-deluxe edition (or whatever) also received a thumb drive loaded with various extra goodies, among them a series of piano covers Mr. Nelson apparently recorded on a potato - "Bedroom Adjacent (Solo Piano Covers)," the collection was called. I never paid these much mind and usually skipped them as soon as iTunes shuffle sent them my way, but as I was coming into my apartment last night fiddling with my keys, mail, etc., I didn't have the necessary fingers available to attend to my iPod, so I didn't have time to skip before hearing at least the first several seconds of the track. This time, though, the opening lines sounded familiar - "Bow Bells say good-bye to the last train..." - now where do I know that from?? Long story short, I've been sitting on a wonderful little cover of "Best Days" for years now and never realized it until yesterday.

I'm sure Mr. Nelson wouldn't mind my sharing for fellow fans, so: https://www.sendspace.com/file/1wbscz

Sean also has a longstanding affiliation with The Stranger, a weekly Seattle alternative arts/culture paper. His writing is a joy to read, and users of this forum might find this piece of special interest: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/prop ... ?oid=20842

This particular intersection of '90s music greats gives me great pleasure, as I hope it does for others!
