The cable channel Palladia has renewed Daryl Hall's internet sensation "Live From Daryl's House" for another batch of episodes. Until new episodes are filmed, the station has been airing the same half dozen episodes, over and over. And over. Last night, I was surprised to not see Kandace Springs or Ben Folds name on my DVR list. Instead, in a timely move, Palladia pulled one out of the Christmas stocking and showed the holiday episode with Shelby Lynne from a year or two ago.
Here are two highlights, both Shelby Lynne originals. The first, is what Daryl Hall called the "darkest Christmas song ever written," much to Lynne's delight. The other, which I believe I posted when the show first aired, is a song from Lynne's breakthrough LP "I Am Shelby Lynne."
Both performances kick some serious ass, actually, with "Leavin," leavin' me weak. It turned me into a puddle of water then, and again last night.
