[video] Jim James covers “Let It Be” at Forecastle
July 16th, 2013 by Matt
I missed the middle of Jim James’ Forecastle set because I was catching pieces of the Flaming Lips’ and Matt & Kim’s sets on Saturday night. Luckily I arrived just in time to catch his set-ending cover of The Beatles’ “Let It Be.” As far as I know it’s the first time he’s covered the classic tune, but he looks incredibly comfortable with it. I know we can’t have Jim James/My Morning Jacket closing out every Forecastle Saturday night, but it would’ve been really great to have this be the song that sends us out into the Louisville night air.
