Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the Oct. 15th showdown.

Battle of the Bands #BOTB results, SEASON OF THE WITCH

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.

♫ A bewitching Halloween offering ♫

This battle wasn’t quite as close as I thought it would be. Here’s how you voted:

Sam Gopal
Arlee, Birgit, Cathy, Cherdo, Diedre, Dixie, Janie, Jeffrey, Michele, Robin, Shady
Total: 11
~~~~~~~~
Dr. John
C.W. Martin, John, Mary Lou, Mike, Myke, Pat, Stephen
Total: 7

Once again, my vote won’t make a difference, but I’ll add it anyway. Psychedelic rock is one of my favourite genres and I thought Sam Gopal did a great job. Loved the tabla! On the other hand, I’m completely enamoured of killer guitar riffs, especially blues, and deep voices so, it has to be Dr. John. Too bad this doesn’t help him. Oh well, he lost to a formidable opponent.

The winner is:
SAM GOPAL
by 3 votes

Here’s the winner with a different song from the same album:

    1. I was on the losing side here too, although I do like the winning version as well. Just not quite as much. Those bluesy guitar riffs get to me, every time! 🙂

  1. 3-vote margin of victory? GOOD Battle! When I voted, it looked like The Good Doctor was getting his clock cleaned. Glad to see he kept it very close in the end.

  2. I always like to see the results. 🙂

    I hope you enjoy reading 30 Seconds Before on your upcoming trip! It is a short novella, but if you haven’t read 30 Seconds (the next story), it’ll give you more to read. 🙂

  3. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    It doesn’t surprise me that Sam and his band won the battle. I am surprised that he didn’t win by a wider margin and that your ears didn’t match mine. If a deep voice is your thang then I high recommend Ariana Grande and Minnie Riperton 🙂 I enjoyed the bonus track from Sam Gopal. I could listen to those guys all night long!

    Thank you for reporting the results and for introducing two fine pieces of music that I would not have known about otherwise. Have a great day and weekend, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Hi, Shady; I take it you didn’t care for Dr. John’s version. To each their own. Our ears don’t have to match to carry on a friendship. 🙂 Sam Gopal did a great job and I liked their rendition a lot, but Dr. John had those awesome guitar riffs and that basso profundo delivery that gave me chills. If Ariana Grande and Minnie Riperton did a duet, I’d definitely be jumping off the boat! 😉 That second track from Sam Gopal was killer! I’m glad you enjoyed it, too. Cheers!
