“Into the Mystic” by Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

I’m having a really rough morning and words are not coming easily. So, instead, for today’s Song of the Day, I will share a cover of my favorite Van Morrison song, one that has a lot of memories attached to it, by Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. I’m looking forward to seeing him play (with opener Aimee Mann) next Friday.

Though I prefer the original, this is a great live cover of “Into the Mystic”. Jason always has so much passion and emotion in his performances. And the band sounds great, giving the song an alt-country meets rock feel that I’m enjoying this morning.

Song of the Day

“I wanna rock your gypsy soul,
just like way back in the days of old,
then magnificently we will float,
into the mystic.”
