Listening to different acoustic covers of such a great hit song, you go me to thinking.

There are some fine classic tunes out there that have lent themselves very well to being covered in different ways. Some good some bad. And YouTube certainly has become a goldmine repository for both extremes.

So, lets pick a classic song that gets covered a lot, what is your favorite version of it that you can find of all the covers on Youtube? And what is the worst?

For example let's start with "She's Not There" as made popular by The Zombies in '64. Any nominees for best/worse cover version?

The song that turned me on to my favorite guitar player. Leo Kottke, 1970....aka the Master of the Twelve String.

You need (NEED!) to acquire a copy of his second album (really first major release) "6 & 12 String Guitar". All instrumental, no vocals. He does like to sing and does on 75% of his albums, in a self-described voice he likens to "geese farts on a muggy day). He also released a "One Guitar, No vocals" album after his hiatus with acute tendonitis, which was understandable given his playing style. He's a lot less aggressive in his style now, but his early stuff is what made him. I had "Mudlark" (with 8 miles high and some other awesome stuff) the entire time I was in VN...wouldn't have been without it. He's also hugely witty (very dry) and delight in person. Had the privilege to see several times. He was a protoge of John Fahey, the American Primitivist guitarist, and grew from there. He's played with everybody from Chet Atkins to Doc Watson (at least once altogether).

Here are some things to start you off...

(Morning Is The Long Way Home is actually a song, here performed instrumentally only)

This was from early in Lovett's career, each guy obviously wishing he had the other guy's skill set. The instrument break is hair raising.

...and just for fun....

File this under "Tracks of the Day" since it's a full album....and it's been a while....

Fresh new Heavy Blues/Rock from a band down in Melbourne. Lots of soul and the singer is at times reminiscent of Eric Burdon. Found it while taking an interesting tangent from the instrumental psychedelic space rock kick I've been on. Some really amazing bands popping up these days! Throw it on in the background and give it a listen....
