More Georgie James

Rainy Dawg is the University of Washington’s internet only student radio station, it seems to fly under the radar of most people in Seattle and elsewhere, but it’s well worth dialing into on your computer. Georgie James were in town on last week and after their show at the Sunset Tavern on Thursday night, they stopped over at Rainy Dawg Radio to do a few songs. They played six songs and chatted at length with Omar. It’s a great session and really good interview that feels like you’re hanging out with band at somebody’s house. You can hear how Chris Wilson of the Flamin’ Groovies just nearly heard Georgie James cover of I Can’t Hide from the seminal 1976 album Shake Some Action. Here’s that Flamin’ Groovies cover courtesy of Omar at Rainy Dawg Radio and of course Georgie James.

You can download the other five songs from the session as well as listen to the interview over at Love is Elusive.

And here’s the original by the Flamin’ Groovies, well worth hearing too: Flamin’ Groovies – I Can’t Hide

    Good to hear people are still checking out the Groovies back catalogue. Chris played the song just recently, on the last night of London’s famed – and now closed – Marquee club.

    For anyone interested, Chris is in the prcess of recording a new album. Details can be found at:

    Thanks for this – I had no idea it was out there, and I’m a GJ fan.

    Also, love the blog! Keep up the awesome work.
