Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings

Season 16, Episode 1 of 13

In this fantastic Soundstage set, Counting Crows play the majority of their fifth studio release, Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings, a tightly-crafted concept album made up of passionately honest songs. Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings is the perfect combination of high and low. The Saturday Nights songs are upbeat, pairing subtle but expressive lyrics with fast-paced, brazen electric guitar, while the Sunday Mornings selections have a more reflective, subdued tone. An energized Adam Duritz starts the night off right with a raucous version of the CD opener "1492." Duritz sings of loss in the moody "Washington Square," accompanied by piano and acoustic guitar and his no-holds-barred emotion also resonates in slower songs like "Le Ballet D'or" and "When I Dream of Michelangelo." Other must-sees include "Los Angeles" and "Cowboys."
