(Mark Edwards) #24

This is far more impressive than the original.

(GaryM) #25

Rickie Lee Jones, Rebel Rebel, from Traffic from Paradise

(Mike) #26

Randy Newman’s biting “Sail Away” is even more poignant in the capable hands of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. Nice recording, too.




Cool take on Nick Drake’s song.

(Sean) #28

The George Benson & Quincy Jones & Rod Temperton classic



Cake - I Will Survive


Here is a couple of interesting versions of ‘River’ by Joni Mitchell. One with the arrangement and keyboard magic of Herbie Hancock, and the other beautifully sung by k.d. lang with Medeleine Peyroux

(produced by Richard Perry & just about the greatest '45 ever)


Original :

(John B) #40

On Tidal, well worth the listen.
