Best Covers



@ezwind +1 to Playing for Change series--The Weight being the best of it

Not sure if Gregg Allman's "Midnight Rider" from Laid Back counts as a cover but maybe since we're stretching the rules a little?

Always like Linda Rondstadt's cover of Willin", esp the Live from Atlanta version

Faces covering Paul McCartney "Maybe Amazed" off Long Player

Stereophonics covering Chris Farlowe/ Rod Stewart, "Handbags & Gladrags" off Just Enough Education To Perform 

George Michael covering Elton John, "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" off Ladies and Gentleman, The Best Of

Jack White's Raconteurs covering Terry Reid, "Rich Kid Blues" off Consolers Of The Lonley

I can do this all day,...
