THERE ARE A LOT OF GREAT SONGWRITERS, BUT THERE’S ONLY A FEW AMAZING SONGWRITERS…

FOLKS HAVE INTERESTING VIEWS ON COVERS. I’VE HAD MANY A LATE NIGHT DISCUSSING THE SUBJECT. SOME HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS, THEY FEEL THAT THEY SHOULD IMPROVE UPON, OR AT LEAST BE AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL. SOME ARE JUST LOOKIN FOR A NEW ANGLE?

PERSONALLY I DON’T THINK ANY OF THESE TUNES ARE BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL, BUT SOME ARE INTERESTING OR BRING SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE & OTHERS, JUST A GOOD LISTEN. SO, FIND YOURSELF A TALL GLASS, POUR YOURSELF A RED NEEDLE, RELAX & ENJOY!
