Lamentably, I didn’t make it out to this year’s Bonnaroo, but thanks to some enterprising hippies, I’ve wrangled a bootleg of My Morning Jacket’s marathon four-hour set that was reportedly played in the midst of a torrential downpour. I haven’t had the chance to listen to it in its entirety but the sound quality isn’t bad, even if Jim’s voice sounds a bit strained. Naturally, there are covers galore (galore, I tell you), including cuts from Sly & the Family Stone, Erykah Badu, James Brown, Funkadelic, Kool & the Gang, Bobby Womack, the Velvet Underground and uh…Motley Crue. I’m presuming this is as a thanks to Tommy Lee for writing “Highly Suspicious.”
