    Like doo wop?

    Godfrey Daniel is ready to provide some

    Whole Lotta Love

    Hey Jude

    I can't find it, but their Proud Mary is totally amazing. And they start the LP off with the Hey Jude, then they also do Hey Jude as the last track in classic Righteous Brothers style. Amazing

    One of the most famous, and most argued about, covers of the rock era.
    To save time, these are the radio edit versions.

    I think maybe we've had enough of the Godfrey Daniel covers....
    Btw, I vaguely remember that band- think I checked the album out from the public library in HS.

    G-D was a side project of a couple guys from the Amboy Dukes band. I find the doo wop takes on songs where it is clearly not appropriate to be humorous. I'll let them rest...

    Actually, much of the Absolutely Free album was covers. There are big snippets of Holst's The Planets, and Stravinsky's Petrouschka and Rite of Spring, strewn throughout. It was a kind of musical version of how-many-hidden-animals-can-you-spot-in-this-picture.

    Curious Cultural Phenomenon- Call Me Oops

    My youngest niece's boyfriend has done some camera work and bit acting for a comedy troupe called CardboardHelmets- so I "had" to check out their Youtube offerings. One of their bits (not the funniest, IMO) involves an argument over a current (lame, IMO) pop song- so I "had" to search the tune to put the reference in social context.

    Now the weird part- a whole bunch of young, largely Asian, guitarists have uploaded instrumental versions of the tune. Of the versions I've listened to, just about all are (IMO) more interesting than the original. It's like a thousand Richard Thompsons around the world have all done their own cover of "Oops, I've Done It Again".
    Or something.

    They certainly are different.

    Growing up in NJ, I never realized that Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes' Without Love was a cover.
    Aretha Franklin - Without Love - YouTube (1974)
    Southside Johnny And The Asbury Jukes - Without Love (From the DVD 'From Southside To Tyneside') - YouTube (Released 1976)

    When I heard Tito Puente at Baltimore's Artscape, I was puzzled why he did so many Santana covers.
    (Of course, it was the other way around).

    Here IMO is a pretty good cover of "Gimme Shelter", by Grand Funk!
    I like the distorted bass, you didn't much of that back then.



    And, the original by the Stones.

    Not heard this before. Superb. Its got elements of what became Seattle Grunge. Maybe they sowed the seeds when they played there!
