Take a listen below to Jesse Colin Young's original song 'Let Your Light Shine". Then, if you haven't heard it before or just want a refresher, listen to the the Allman Brothers' Soulshine. There shouldn't be a debate in your mind as to whether the latter song is a direct copy of Young's 'Light Shine'. The question is though, does it matter? Should Warren have given Young a songwriting credit on Soulshine? Would it be appropriate for him to introduce the song before he plays it as inspired by a Jesse Colin Young tune? Let us know what you think.
I can't take credit for discovering this musical connection, as I first read about it on PhantasyTour a few months back, but I figured now that The Weight is back in business, it would be interesting to bring this bit of music trivia to the attention of our readers.
