Best Covers



I just discovered the album "Here it is: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen.  This is  jazz oriented. Here's a cover for you: Mavis Staples singing "If it Be Your Will".  I cannot express how moved I am by Ms. Staples cover. Take a listen.

Bonnie Raitt covering anything James Taylor or John Haitt did was always good.

Covers are sometimes superior.  Sinatra could frequently improve upon originals

Jimi Hendrix playing “All Along the Watchtower (so good Dylan changed the rhythm it to be more like Jimii)

and both JH and Whitney Houston’s covers of the Star Spangled Banner - more creative, expressive and emotional than any version before.
