Covers: Play It All Night Long

Warren Zevon’s “Play It All Night Long” was on his 1980 album Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School. There’s a great cover by the Drive-By Truckers which to me is far better than the original. The song is about Lynyrd Skynyrd which makes it a natural for the Truckers since they were often compared to Skynyrd. It’s an avalance of guitars which reminds me more of Neil Young than Lynyrd Skynyrd. It’s on an album of leftovers but I saw them play it live so it wasn’t just an afterthought.
