Re: Covers that are better than the originals!

Written and produced for this fella-

Chris Farlowe - Handbags and Gladrags.

The writer then cut it, as it was used in film.

Mike D'Abo - Handbags and Gladrags.

Then Rod layed down his rendition for 'Raincoats'.

Rod Stewart - Handbags and Gladrags.

Then... Wales!

Stereophonics - Handbags and Gladrags.

Try these two..the Document lp is strong all the way through....and Green also. Those 2 are my favorites, (but many people like Out Of Time, Automatic , and Monster.)





Apologies for going off topic here on the cover thread.

Re: Covers that are better than the originals!

@dr wu... I don't know what started the rot, as I like the lyrical content about the Taxi comedian.. and they are Athens based too. Maybe they went the way that Talking Heads did also... thanks for the songs.
