Hammers of Misfortune Cover Freebird

John Cobbett and friends got together recently, at the request of Guy Overfelt, to do a cover of “Freebird.” Yes, that “Freebird”.

“Covering this old chestnut without sounding totally cheeseball was quite a challenge,” Cobbet Said.

Produced and arranged by Cobbet, this track features many Hammers and non-Hammers personnel, and was recorded at Trakworx by Justin Weis in January 2010. (Full lineup after the jump.)

There’s not much else to say about this other than that it’s awesome – even more awesome than you think.

Here is the lineup for this track:

Aesop Dekker – drums
John Cobbett – guitar, bass
Sigrid Sheie – piano, organ, flute
Jesse Quattro – vocals
Jackie Gratz – cello
Catherine Gratz – oboe
