    Not sure how I missed that given it was on the 1st page! Ha!

    How bout Jackie Shane covering Money then? If you only listen to one cross dressing Canadian soul singer it should be Jackie Shane.

    It's the best new thing i've heard in years - there's just something about that drippin with funk sound and Bonnie that go together. Don Was was the first producer to really bring it out in her, but when he did, it was a match made in heaven. It not only lays the basis for cool grooves and rhythm for the bluesy/funky side of her voice, but also her slide work just cuts through it so well. Bonnie is really at her best here.

    Dar Williams sounds good Scrapyardblue.

    TNO-i haven't figured out Cat Powers yet...but her fans are extremely loyal. Very cool.

    Getrguy1-i could listen to Ray Charles all day and night and all afternoon...Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music is the album that comes to mind regarding covers by Ray. Funny, Bobby Womack tried the same thing in 1976 with BW does CW...it bombed.

    Knowing what an icon Ray was, who in their right mind would have the balls to cover Ray? Introducing Richard Manuel and the Band...

    You picked a good one there, Scott! :cool:

    Not many rock groups could get away with a classic like that ... I know probably just one more .....



    Not saying these covers are better than the original - that's almost impossible - but they're still great versions of a great song!

    I really like The Band's version of Long Black Veil.

    Also love CCR's version of Grapevine.
