Favorite cover?


As a (minor) film buff, I almost invariably prefer originals. But when it comes to audio, I  have found more than a few covers that I prefer to the originals. So, to kick things off, and with all due respect to Boz Scaggs, I absolutely LOVE this live Incognito version of Lowdown:

I almost always prefer originals because they are usually more raw but there exceptions of course.

Two obvious ones for me are Blondie’s covers of The Tide is High and Denis.

The Sex Pistols My Way could be another.
Dave Edmund's version of Smiley Lewis' "I Hear You Knocking".
Johnny Rivers doing "A Whiter Shade Of Pale"!
