d's posting of Shawn Colvin's cover of The Beatles' "I'll be Back" inspired this sort of resurrection of a years ago thread. Let's find some "covers" that while not necessarily any of your favorites, are interesting anyway. Let's try another Beatles cover to kick things off...

Here's Brian Setzer and the Stray Cats version of Sleepwalk...this is my favorite version and it describes the concept of improvisation perfectly. There are many covers of the original by Santo and Johnny to include the Ventures and Les Paul. I love them all and no other tune has influenced my playing as much as Sleepwalk. I find a striking similarity to Since I Fell for You which was recorded in the 40's long before Santo and Johnny's Sleepwalk and I find the chord changes using the major to the minor concept in many many songs:



cool

Apple's take on the Beatles tune [that's an unintended almost-pun ] is most interesting, I think, for the video's commentary & construction (the well-timed "glass spla-mashes", for instance).
Take that, Katy Perry ! bang

That's more atmospheric & jazzy than I knew the SCats got.
I liked the down/up line at 1:26~1:33 (was there an edit in there?) & the cadenza at the end, esp the spiky bugle lick rhythm @ 3:07 !

@ d, I don't think there was an edit at 1:26 - 1:33 but then again, this is the studio version so there may be a few here and there. None of the 3 cats play steel (to my knowledge) and I don't know who the artist was that was playing it. But, I really like the way they returned and injected the original with the steel version at 2:10. +1 The ending is just wild too. Remember Brian was just a young kid when this was cut. He was miles ahead of any guitar player for his age IHMO...great jazz for a young dudes Rockabilly band LOL! The live versions are not as good, so I posted the studio... cool

Fascinating how faithful Zappa's cover is to the original. All the arrangement elements are there.
Fascinating how many monitors Danny Elfman needs. They started out as a really offbeat theater/chamber music/performance art band called "The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo" in LA back in the 70s. I used to see them at alternative theater spaces in West Hollywood. They lost a lot of the weird charm when they went commercial.

With the anniversaries of David Bowie's birth and death this week, I heard several radio stations play both the original of "Five Years" and some cover versions as well. But I have to admit, none of them measure up to this cover by Scottish singer Fish (IMHO). Not just because I'm a Fish/Marillion fan, but I think this is less rambling than the original; more melodic and passionate. The horn section & back-up singers are arranged nicely, too. Frank Usher holds off until about the 4 minute mark before getting in some tasty licks. And David Paton's fretless bass throughout is right up my alley.

After waiting impatiently for the point out of my leaving the "e" out of "covers", I decided to push on. wink

If there's now some interest in covers of Beatle tunes that were Lennon based, well then;

Like her or not, Cindi does prove this tune stands well enough on it's own as a musical construct without all the studio extras of the original.

Devo has done all kinds of interesting covers over the years- “Workin in a coal mine”, “Satisfaction”, “Are you experienced”- but my favorite is this one:

Gee, thanks, all !
I, for one, am learning of some very interesting work, some by artists I'm previously unaware of...but how abt something really diff ?

Many of the examples above surpass the orig recs & Hancock's version of "NorWood" transforms it but this clip both intensifies & transforms the orig song in a way that, I think, is truly visionary.
Really...I'd never thought of this---would you've ?.
Plus it's by a master guitarist ! rawk grin

Not to ignore the usual Earl Hines-influenced contribution of Bernie Worrell [dig the just-slightly-off-time comping at the intro & behind the solo]
& Boosty Collins's slippery bs bumping into the beat every which way
or the production that gives the cymbal splashes a coating of delay/reverb stretching them out almost 2 measures
but sit back & revel in this gtr construction by the best Hendrix clone we've had so far.
From the opening "get onboard" bluesy train invocation ~ closing benediction to "Dream on...", there's something going on w/the gtr the entire track but lemme point out these highlights:
the purring/growling note-knot pulled together at 1:25 (reworked as a thematic device later) ;
the stuttering fall into the main solo at 2:05 ;
the richness of Hazel's vox (why didn't this cat do more singing ?).

Diego Ferri is a YouTuber who, IMHO, has a really good feel for taking classical compositions and combining them with a sparsely beautiful electric tone. Here’s a pair of Satie and a Chopin.

I dunno d.......

I tried WIKI, ALLMUSIC, IDBM and any other source I could think of and can't find any info on any 1984 by Hendrix. Was that JIMI Hendrix, or some OTHER guy named Hendrix? wink

Help me out here... drool


OK, enough of that. cop Knew what was meant anyway. And speaking of which, there's several covers to be found, but this IS one of the better ones IMO----

Oooops, yes I meant "1983", his epochal future-dystopian track on the ELECTRIC LANDLADY alb grin ....here covered, in the spirit of the thread, w/violinist Nigel Kennedy playing most of the song's themes, including the aforementioned spookifying bs line & a whole series oof other arrangement alterations.

Here's one I heard for the 1st time just last night by an artist I'd, somehow, also never heard before.

Somewhat an acquired taste (she hits somewhere in the orbit of Billie Holiday & Macy Gray but w/a country blues flavor), KD had an apparent penchant for breaking up the usual cadential & melodic flow of songs.
Dig what she did to Marvin's song here.

ORIGINAL
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je-gNICGdbs


COVER
Besides her, uh, Appalachian jazz take on the vocal dig the consecutive gtr solos [1:50~2:20] twothumbs

One of my all time fave covers. For me, a cover has to bring something different to the table for it to be worth doing. The solo slays me, for upending all expectations.

Scott, that intro scared me as much as when I was a kid & played Mom's copy of "Stranded In The Jungle" by the Cadets (see below) & later covered by the New Yawk Dolls (not posted for the reason yer abt to read).
I'll have to return to it another time.

Those were all pretty good. And y'know, some "covers" I find I like BETTER than the originals. For example, I never had any use for this tune originally, but I LOVE this cover of it! roll

Yeah, DanA, Li\una's a monster.
She not only does those market-targeted covers [1] but she's a legit trad musician [2].
If one watches her techniques she's really just a fantastic player.

Some might wonder what a gtr's doing in the "trad" mix but that's what keeps music of any culture from becoming just a museum piece & alive/relevant.

The gtr cat seems to be doing the Bootsy foot (i.e., stomping in time w/tambourine on foot ..but whence the tambo ? ! idk

That's a really old version, pre 1992 when I started mixing them. After I took over the sound duties Purple Haze got a LOT louder, heavily overdriven, & drenched in feedback. Big fun.
Kronos also does a transcription of Hendrix's Woodstock 'Star Spangled Banner'.
