Tapping into nostalgia in the most unique, refreshing, and satisfying way possible, The Midnight Shepherds have delivered a soul-drenched and heartfelt performance with the cover of “Melissa” by the legendary rock band The Allman Brothers.
Just like the original, this cover is hauntingly beautiful. As a fan of The Allman Brothers, I’ve loved “Melissa” since my first listen; experiencing a band do it justice like The Midnight Shepherds have is a feeling beyond words.
This cover makes me nostalgic for times when I was younger, with The Midnight Shepherds bringing those deep feelings into the song. The soaring guitar is such a tantalizing improvisation around this tune, and the lead vocalist really creates emotional resonance with his cowboy-flavored voice, injecting the tune with a country thrill.
“Melissa” has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written…I could listen to it a million times over, and it would never get old. And that’s the same feeling I have for this captivating cover.
One of the remarkable aspects of songs like “Melissa” is their multi-layered meanings, each one as valid as the next. The Midnight Shepherds’ cover resonates with each listener in a unique way.
I also like that improvisation with the intense riffs and drums taking the tune to an immersive climax!
