Joe Cocker, The Letter, originally a hit by the Box Tops

Grateful Dead, Turn on Your Love Light. Bobby "Blue" Bland first recorded

Another vote for Eva Cassidy’s, Over The Rainbow (don’t remember who wrote the Judy Garland original)

Thankyouforlettingmebemyselfagain, Magazines’ cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s terrific original

Oye Como Va, Santanas’ version of the Tito Puente original.

Laura Nyro’s version of "God Bless the Child" originally performed by Billie Holiday, Al Kooper did a passable version too with the original Blood Sweat and Tears.

Late to the show…just listened to Joan Baez’ version of The Dire Straights Brothers in Arms from the same album.  It can be described in two words (three if you count the and):

Beautiful and Haunting

I agree with Tim Buckley's performance of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah. Utterly gorgeous. Packed with emotion.
