AUK Chain Gang: Patterson Hood “Come Back Little Star”

Will Johnson to Patterson Hood – How is this you ask? In 2012 one of the all-time great Americana bills played at the Forum Kentish Town. The Alabama Shakes headlined supported by Patterson Hood and one… Will Johnson.

The Shakes were Hood’s band, and this song in particular stuck in the mind as Patterson’s vocals were illuminated by the brilliant backing vocals of Brittany Howard. I wonder how many other headliners have ever been the backing band for the support? This is also possibly Patterson’s greatest song. Discuss.

Where is Brittany Howard? Neither of the two women performing backup vocals is Howard.

This absolutely stunning Keith. Thanks for sharing.
