Chris Robinson Brotherhood Debuts The Kinks Cover In Boston

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood continued summer tour on Saturday night at the House Of Blues in Boston. Chris Robinson & Co. focused on material off the recently released Barefoot In The Head and encored with their debut version of a Kinks classic.

In typical CRB fashion, the band kicked off the Saturday night show with Tony Joe White’s “Saturday Night In Oak Grove, Louisiana” which was listed as “Saturday Night In Boston” on the stage setlist. The recently debuted “Venus In Chrome” came next ahead of “Forever As The Moon” from Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel. “Hark, The Herald Hermit Speaks” was the evening’s first song off Barefoot In The Head and would be joined by five other tunes off the new LP by the time the set was through including “Blue Star Woman,” “She Shares My Blanket” and “Good To Know.”

Robinson and his band covered Percy Mayfield’s “Loose Lips” in the middle of the set and also treated Beantown fans to a rendition of “Try Rock & Roll” by Bobby Mitchell. The CRB was so focused on recent material, “Shore Power” was the only original of the entire concert that wasn’t debuted within the past 18 months. For the encore, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood said farewell with their debut take on the Kinks’ 1965 single “Where Have All The Good Times Gone.”
