Five Covers

I haven't done a covers post since...August. Let's remedy that right now.

From Portland, The Decemberists cover Fleetwood Mac and the Thermals take on Led Zeppelin. Both of these are found on Arena Rock's Bridging The Distance, which you can pick up (with 3 bonus tracks) at eMusic.

From Detroit, the White Stripes do a live cover of Nat King Cole, and the Detroit Cobras cover the Strokes.

Closing it out is AC/DC's "Baby, Please Don't Go" from 1974, originally done in 1945 by the blues musician Big Joe Williams. This was also the first song the group ever performed on television.

check also "baby please don't go" covered by Budgie, from their third album "never turn your back on a friend" back in 1973. It's a killer one with driving rythm section and smashing guitars!!!

I haven't heard that one, but I would welcome the opportunity. Feel free to send it over if you've got it.

Scrumptious collection o' covers. Nice work.

Thanks for the covers, and isn't the Detoit Cobras cheating. All they play are covers, great covers, but still..

Not a dig, you have a great blog.

Doesn't make it any less a cover song. It's a good cover that is somewhat rare, and that's all it needed to be.
