    Is it just me or does this have a cool Lou Reed / Velvets vibe?

    Only in the sense that it reminds me of the Cowboy Junkies cover of Sweet Jane.

    I'd say so.
    It has that drone-y simple, "Sweet Jane" groove to it. Probably reminds me of Cowboy Junkies...

    I like this song as it reminds me of the great DC area 99.1 FM WHFS ( '70's progressive>alt rock/later mostly '90's stuff) radio station which sadly faded out after the '90's - this song got a lot of play

    * too bad this live version is missing the 'lazy'slide

    Yup. 100% awesome. Hope Sandoval is cool. Don’t stop with this 1 song. She’s got a library of smoky songs.

    Easy to get into. Good rainy day music. Is that a thing to anyone else? I really dig her voice.

    It's a ripoff of Dylan's Knock Knock Knockin' on Heaven's Door.

    I've been a fan of Mazzy Star ever since I first heard them on the Batman Forever soundtrack, haha.

    Wasn’t that just a ripoff of Helpless though?

    Damn, how did this become an acrimonious Beatles/Dylan/God thread? And no, it's not Lou/VU either. You know, just my opinion :)

    Definitely a great mood band. Popular 90s music during that This Mortal Coil/Portishead period. This was sort of the dichotomy to the grunge sound. If you had a hip music girlfriend, who was going places career-wise, you were getting romantic to this...and of course Roxy Music Avalon, because that was vintage :) And there's something about Hope Sandoval.

    Another really nice one. David Roback's straightforward but creative guitar work and her voice produced a tasty vibe. Sort of a guilty pleasure, like Marzipan. You can only eat a little.

    Opal, David Roback, Hope Sandoval vocals. Pics, however are of Kendra Smith. Sandoval replaced Smith in last iteration of Opal, which became Mazzy Star:
