Wow. Thanks for that one. Vocals very Joplinesque at times.mynameisbob84 said:Ah, covers... I may be here a while.
I'll try not to dwell on the obvious ones. Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower" and "Hey Joe" are obviously amazing, as is Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" and Johnny Cash's "Hurt". The Isley Brother's (Who's That) Lady is straight-up bad-ass and I always dug Manfred Mann's "Blinded By The Light". Here be the not so obvious ones, yo...
Grace Potter, Joe Satriani and more cover Neil Young's "Cortez The Killer"
The bit at 2:18 where she sings the line "So that others could go on" is amazing - that lazy, cool, Southern drawl giving way to unfettered emotion; it's enough to make a grown man cry, innit.
Very interesting. Personally I don't care for their version, but everything you said is true. If I didn't already know coming in, I would have had to listen carefully to figure out what song that was.SweepTheLeg said:Took an iconic song, made it theirs.
