Really some excellent performances in the that group you selected, Tusk. Also the sound is consistently quite good. Nice work.

The LoFi Soul touring band brings a lot of punch to the musical side of the performances.  The two guitars fit well and, in particular, Anders has a bluesy rock n' roll style that brings new life to many songs.

I have long felt that Haley would benefit from edgier and more powerful musical elements in some of her music, particularly with guitar, to complement her voice. Not just in live performances and not just as solos inserted in songs, but as part of the arrangement in recordings.  There are a number of her compositions that sound better with the bigger guitar presence.  For example, Good or Bad sounds great in the Seattle video -- and it becomes a better song.  Others, too. Of course, Haley was on fire in many of those performances but I imagine she draws some of her energy off the band.

I'd love to see her do some recording with Anders and also integrate some tastey guitar riffs into the songs. I think that could take her to a next level.

I especially like that 9 of 10 videos I picked were Haley originals.  I didn't think to do that in advance, I only had two rules going in 1) no repeat songs & 2) no more than two songs from one venue.

I just started at Jan 1 and scrolled forward, picking ones I liked until I encountered one that was better and replaced it.  I only noted there was only one cover after I'd finalized my list Smile

I did break one of my rules as you can see there are 3 videos from one venue in the list.  Hard as I might, I couldn't find any other video to knock any of the the three off, which not-coincidentally, all 3 were in the top 5 videos Tongue

Time of the Season is about to pass White Rabbit in total views on my channel.  It seems it's been shared in Russia as I've had spike, it's now back to getting over 10,000 views per day the last four days.
This caused me to look at the videos that have made the most noise in the last 2 years, breaking into the top 10.

Some interesting statistics about White Rabbit, Can't Find My Way Home and Time of the Season....

Light green is At Last, Dark Green is Wild Horses

White Rabbit has most views but fewest likes of the 3 #contraversial
Each song is #1 in one category.
Time of the Season blows the Ribfest videos away in Likes, it has more likes than the other two combined... 
interesting look at what Haley fans like

Since TOTS has a million more views than CFMWH, the like to view ratio difference isn't huge. Likes is about 1.5% vs 1.25% of views for TOTS vs CFMWH, respectively.  I'm partial to CFMWH (one of my favorite Haley covers).

CFMWH was also posted a few months after the other two, first video posted in 2019.  For a while there, I was deluged by angry negative comments by Jefferson Airplane fans and conservatives (notable the ire was concentrated on WR and hardly any other of the Ribfest videos, so it wasn't only about Haley's shorts and the way she dressed).  Nice to see the 'positive' videos ended out winning the day.  I appreciated the surge and exposure White Rabbit brought to my channel, not so much the misogyny

Updated Top 10 viewed videos on my channel.  For the year, Idyllwild Time of the Season already has over 420,000 views, just passed White Rabbit, only 39,000 views from taking 2nd most viewed from At Last....not out of the question it might make a run to take first place from Wild Horses this year as it's the only video that's doing anything of note.  WH is averaging around 3,000-3,500 views a day, while TOS is averaging over 8,000 a day, there was a stretch of about 4 days recently TOS was getting over 12,000-16,000 views a day.  My channel just passed 2,000,000 views for 2020, TOS is 420,000 of those views Tongue.  Remember, TOS was posted less than 2 years ago Smile
