Damn right!!!

This was the version I was raised on and wore the grooves off of on my stereo as a kid.

BTW, Robert K. "Kim" Payne was one of the original ABB roadies and his contribution to the lyrics was the line "And the road goes on forever".

If you're ever looking for an interesting read, check out the book One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band.

Jimbo recommended.



Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

EVERYBODY that sings and is starting to show touches of 'dain bramage' due to excessive drug abuse, dementia, or Alzheimer's, settles into 'America's Songbook'. Easier than writing and something one can remember from their youth (or, just is easy to perform). Willie Nelson, Bobby Caldwell, Bob Dylan...the list just goes on and on. And you thought you were a 'rock-'n-roller'? No, you're their fan and just getting old...and you can sing along.

I like Willie doing his own songs or those of his friends in the country music bid'ness, but he has a tendency to kind of ruin songs that he does which are outside the genre.

IMO, he kind of butchers this old gem....



YMMV as they say.

WinkActually, t wasn't their idea...NPR reported this when it happened and *I* thought it was actually pretty neat and HAD to make that 14-year old feel 'empowered', if not proud.

Prior to the mid-60s, half the songs on any given album were cover versions, anyway.  The artists back then didn't necessarily write their songs.  Back then, there were songwriters who were totally independent, and would sell their songs to multiple performers.  It wasn't until the mid-late 60s that artists started doing it all themselves.
 
A quick glance at the Beatles' first album shows that 6 out of 14 songs were covers.  Bob Dylan's first album?  2 original songs, 11 remakes.
 
So---remakes, yay or nay?  I don't care much one way or another.

As in Quiet Riot's covers of a couple of Slade songs.  All they added maybe was a cleaner production.  It sounded good, but was really close to the original.
 
Of course, had they not covered at least Cum On Feel the Noize, they wouldn't have had any hits at all.

Just depends on who is doing it, and how. If a band is putting their own personal take on the song, and does a good version, nice. Cross genre covers are good at this. Take the Outlaw's rocked up version of Ghost Riders in the Sky, the previously mentioned Johnny Cash version of Hurt, or WASP's metal take on The Who's The Real Me. Of course, this can go wrong, if the cover band changes the original so much that you can't even tell it's the same song, or if the band is just bad in general. Then there are cases where the cover is so close to the original that you have to wonder why they did the cover to begin with...a common problem with "tribute bands".

It's both.If the remake insignificantly BETTER than the original, it's a yay. If the remake is significantly WORSE than the original it's a nay. And if the remake is not significantly better but does the original justice it is still a yay.

Examples.

Whitney Houston remade The Greatest Love.In her version she sounded hopeful. The original singer sounded depressed. She did it better. Yay.

Celine Dion remade Michael Jackson's Bad. She sounded bad in the literal sense of the word. Nay.

Pink remade Grace Slick's White Rabbit. Although she didn't sound as good as Grace, she sounded good and sang it in the vein of Grace. She did it justice and even Grace herself praised Pink's remake. Yay.

My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

I think I posted the vid of that CBB hit "Couldn't Get It Right" not too long ago. Maybe that's what you're thinking about?

Definitely liked the Johnny Rivers version of "Seventh Son", better though.

I actually subjected myself to this crap at full volume! Yuck just yuck! Both were singing flat. I don't how they managed to f**k up an AC/DC song but they did!

I could not get through the Celine Dion/Anastacia video and actually forced myself to get as far as I did.  I had to stop when Celine did her hip thrust thing.  No, just no.  Dead

You can go find the AC/DC version on your own - Homey don't play 'dat.


I don't know how long that post has been there, but I only just now was able to force myself to watch about 30 seconds of that abomination.

Wait a minute.... did people actually PAY MONEY to go see that crap live????

Seriously?????
