This is one of my favourite bands of all time, Groundation, covering No Woman No Cry live. I think this is absolutely ace, given how many bands have annihilated this tune.

Old? How dare you. I can remember seeing that when it came out. I was at uni. If it's old then I'm like really old.

Oh.

Edit.

Joe Cockers' best cover was WALHFMF. A bit obvious perhaps but true.

Melanie's version of "Ruby Tuesday" is far superior the Stones' version

Kirsty's version of "Days" is better than the Kink's version too.

Don't talk soft. Its not bad but nowhere near The Kinks.

Whole Lotta Love, Led Zeppeilin, but who's version of which song is a bit crazy. Its the Willie Dixon song recorded by Muddy Waters and adapted by the Small Faces before Page and Plant attacked it.

Certainly a ground breaking rework of a blues classic.

True. But I just love her voice...

She's always reminded me of Nicholas 'plonker' Lyndhurst.

Nah, it's way overblown. Delta Lady is about Rita Coolidge, written by Leon Russell when he was her bloke. Joe really liked both of them and did the song more than justice.

Christ, that's dull.

The Only Living Boy in New Cross. Now that's a tune.
