The Baseball's version of Umberella is far superior to the original
Flame Trees - The Sacred Heart School (soundtrack to Little Fish starring Cate Blanchett)
Original by Cold Chisel
Mudshark, Willie's version of Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain surely is as iconic as Jimi's All Along The Watchtower.
Hekawi, the Duhks cover sounded good yet remained true to it's genre.
All i got is the blues...
Alvin captures the spirit of J.B. Lenoir's song.
Snooks does Freddie King.
I like the Byrds' version of "My Back Pages" better than Dylan's original. Beautiful guitar solo, too.
Rammstein covering Depeche Mode's 'Stripped'. WARNING: some NSFW images and references here.
One of my favorite Clapton solos:
Thanks eMGee...Cream's Crossroads is another ultimate cover. And, yeah...Mayall's Stormy Monday is one of Clapton's finest.
A good friend tipped me off to The Red Devils and i've been eating them up for the last few days. Initially all i could remember was that they recorded an album with Mick Jagger that was never released. But after listening i realized they were a truly dangerous band in the early 90's.
The Red Devils cover Howlin' Wolf and Sonny Boy Williamson II
Johnny Cash and The Red Devils do Jimmy Rodgers.
That second video was excellent.
Haven't read through the whole thread, but
"With A Little Help From My Friends" by Joe Cocker.
A lot of people forget that Aretha Franklin's "Respect" is an Otis Redding cover. It's interesting how much the message of the song changed when the same words were sung by a woman, especially at that time.
Redding himself is supposed to have said, upon hearing it, "That woman stole my song!"
Great songwriter > Dylan/ great Covers for his work, Joan Baez, the Byrds and a few others... he needs to stick to writing... this is from a guy who wore out his FreeWheeling Album ... yea the first one, not the reissue... Love him 'cept his voice. Guthrie is excellent, Hank, etc... but Bob just doesn't have the pipes.
Al Green and Lyle Lovett covering Willie Nelson.
The Red Devils were just fantastic. I still listen to their only record King King a lot as well as Lester Butlers record Plague of Madness. A ridiculous shame that he isn't with us anymore.
Really great guitar playing here from Paul Size
I'm a huge Jon Anderson/Yes fan and love the original J&V version of this song, but the late Donna Summer's cover version is even better
Melody Day by Caribou. Amazing song, but the four tet cover is just phenomenal. Such a beautiful song. Check em out.
Almost forgot this one--The Pahinui Brothers with Ry Cooder and David Lindley doing John Lennon.
