Topic: Just For Fun Favorite Covers...
So alot of well known songs are actually covers of old ones, and I was just wondering what some of yall's all time favorites were. My list could be ten miles long but I'm gonna go with just a few for conversation's sake:
1) Bobby Bland and The Blues Band do T-Bone Walkers 'Stormy Monday': Wayne Bennets guitar work on this version of the song is a hugely significant musical nugget and the ABBs Live at the Fillmore East performance of it was based on this one, so its definately a favorite of mine being a big fan of both bands
2) The White Stripes do 'Your Southern Can is Mine' by Blind Willie McTell: I can actually hear how Willie probably influenced Jack White's vocals, and this version is a nice tribute that doesn't stray all too far and is alot of fun to listen to (I like it when they did Son House's 'Death Letter' too as far as that goes)
3) Lynyrd Skynyrd does J.J. Cale's 'Call Me the Breeze' : Steve Gaines was mostly responsible for this one if I'm not mistaken. This version is so much more well known than the original which I think is interesting, just a good song anyway and it was fun to find out it was a cover
Like I said I could do alot more, but lets start off with those what do yall think?
