Here's a friend of mine, Alexander doing an inspired cover of Cocaine by JJ Cale. I may be a bit biased because he is crediting me as one of his influences for the song yet he has packed SO many influences into this. Really a great cover,

Indirectly speaking of Johnny Cash, it's kind of neat that someone of his stature in the music industry covered Nine Inch Nails "Hurt".

+1 for Hurt, I like better than the original. There's decades of pain in his voice with this cover. There are several gems on that album (can you guess my age?).
Another is First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. I picture him singing that at his wife's funeral, then he followed only months later. His voice was failing musically at this point, but man could he deliver on raw emotion.

I agree - love ladies who rock: You guys heard the Target back to school ad using Kids in America ?

Anthony I'm impressed...you're in some good company (Knofler & Clapton !!)

Yes I was kind of chuffed when he produced this cover, and credited me. I did an offbeat cover of Cocaine which set him in motion. Here's my cover,

Agreed, there's so much emotion in his face & voice. The video is really well done too...especially the shots of June Carter. He never got pigeonholed by any genre of music. Per your suggestion here's 1st Time Ever - Some great photos in this video. I've heard the photo at the 1:00 minute mark called the million dollar photo - made at Sun Studios with Johnny, Elvis, Jerry Lee, & Carl Perkins :

Here's an interesting version of 'Cocaine'. Albert Lee playing off another guitar player doing the well-known 'lick' in the song. No vocals, but it sounds great:

Nice, Interesting twist on the song. Have I heard the "wayyyeeehhhh" somewhere before? Why does that sound (or word) seem to be familiar?

Here's a neat reggae-ish version of I Got You Babe from UB-40 with The Pretenders Chrissie Hynde. I had to look hard for a studio version...really well done.

Thanks. I'm a regular when it comes to vocalising an instrumental line. I'm not sure where it may have come from. I guess I was just twisting the main riff a little.

Here's ZOOT covering Eleanor Rigby. Serious rocking version,

Here's Jess Greenberg covering Stop this Train by John Mayer.

Jess certainly attracts attention because of her, Natural assets, yet, she really is a very talented performer,

Bare naked ladies covering Bruce Cockburn's "lovers in a dangerous time". Great cover of a great Cockburn song.

Did you ever wonder if someone/some group could cover a Talking Heads tune, and do it well? Here's the best cover I've ever run across. Needs a little beter fidelity, amybe a bass and a more complete drum kit, but pretty good for the location they're in:

Here's a failed attempt at This Must Be The Place by Arcade Fire. I like the steel drums and the indie arrangement, but Win Butler needs to go down an octive or something - real screechy but A+ for effort on one of their great songs.

The original Talk Talk version struck a chord (pun intended) with me when it first aired on MTV, and to me, this cover and high dollar video by No Doubt was equally impressive.
