@Mary Wing - I think it was a one off thing...acoustic performance at a gallery...I think. I just took the order, I don't ask questions. Didn't even find out it was PJ Harvey til the next day when my tech came back and said he was pleasantly surprised that the gig was actually cool.

It's awfully considerate towards DJs trying to compile a covers show to just name the album "The Covers Record". Handy.

Kurt, I think it's just that often the tracks you play are 10-30 minutes long. If you have a mic break after the same number of tracks this week as a regular week, you end up talking more often.

Hmm, Blondie first recorded OITS in 1975, before their first album. But even that demo doesn't seem to have been released until 1994... It's a mystery, Kurt.

who does a whole album of led zep covers 30 years into their career?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm

When the Fudge track started, I first thought it was a slow psychedelic cover of "Pictures of Matchstick Men". The chord progression was similar.

Apparently, the shorter version of YKMHO was released as a single from the album, but the actual album track is the long one.

It's always good to hear the Vincent Black Lightning song, but there is a certain compelling darkness to Richard Thompson's rendition which I miss if somebody else is singin' it.

For harmony *and* counterpoint, try Les Arts Florissants delivering Michel Lambert, from 1:30: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=expB4yac2KQ

V Priceless:

@ glenn - plus, Fudge was one of the earlier rock bands to have commercial success with a completely 're-imagined' cover version of a song. To Kurt's earlier comment on the Zep covers, I think they still ride the fumes of the re-invented cover version to this day. It's their 'thing'.

Bryant:

Ah, this Aztec Camera track and the earlier Bjork/PJ Harvey pairing on "Satisfaction" are two of my favorite cover versions of all time. Thanks, Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm

The thing is, Vanilla Fudge have never released an album without at least one cover on it, usually several. That's their schtick.

Just counted all the tracks on all Fudge albums: 8 albums, 75 tracks, 9 bonua tracks. Out of the 75, 45 are covers. Of the 9 bonus tracks, 4 are covers. And considering one of the covers is actually 9 covers mashed together...

I'd like to give props to Polyus for his comment @5:26. I get the feeling the drummer spent the vast majority of Isaac's intro talk and the rest of the song glaring at him. "Oh, just get to the point already!"
