hehe Neil is probably the one note guitar solo king

Meters cover is great - why are there so many good soul covers of Neil? doesn't seem like he was too into that scene?

three months pass...

New ones appear all the time, but I thought I knew pretty much every big-name Neil cover done before The Bridge, at least. Somehow this one slipped by me until I bought the album at a record show today:

Not very good.

I think I actually prefer it to the original! An entire album of Neil songs in that style would get a bit much though.

The original's not a favourite, so that figures in. I actually really like their "Ticket to Ride" cover (same album--it was originally released as Offering, then re-released a few months later as Ticket to Ride when that became a minor hit).

No! Thanks--will order that for sure.

Clancy's such a weird-ass song to have inspired so many period covers (I think like three or four besides the Carpenters one).

Including--I could be wrong--the first Neil cover ever, Fever Tree's version of "Clancy" in 1968.

Clancy fucking sucks wtf

there's also joni mitchell's 1967 radio recording of "sugar mountain" which is cool

67? Wow that’s early. Maybe Neil “gave” it to her?

calstars, Sunday, 9 December 2018 23:50 (eleven months ago) link

Maybe Fever Tree's was the first one to make it onto a record. If anyone knows one earlier (March 28, 1968), please post.
