Indulge me while I use my forum to pimp somebody. I just have to rant here for a second. I went to see a good friend of mine's band last night, and I hadn't seen them for about a year or so and I completely forgot WHAT AN AMAZING FUCKING ROCK BAND they are. I think Kehew summed it up perfectly, that it must have been the equivalent to seeing the James Gang back in the day. I have not heard a band give me that 1971 type of rock that convincingly and true to form since I don't know when.
Mother Superior doubled for a while as one of the incarnations of the Rollins Band, Wayne Kramers backing band, and are now Daniel Lanois' backing band. (Daniel also played pedal steel with them for a couple tunes last night. Jesus, is he a great steel player.)
Next time they play in your town, you better get your ass to see them. Your life will change.
