Comment:

well, here it is, as enivitable as taxes and fred durst's male-pattern-baldness -- the second batch of covers collected. this time around, i went for the more obscure choices than before; there's some very cool versions here (namely: the wolfgang press, ultra vivid scene and macha renditions, which are all pretty damn stellar) and some very, um, "loose" takes (god is my co-pilot, mogwai and, ahem, the incredibly slipshod and alcohol-soaked country teasers), as well. now if my bloody valentine would only do a version of (is it the archies?) "sugar, sugar", i could die a happy man....

Dave, you need to hear Shannon Wright's take on "I Started a Joke"... spine-tingling. A great mix, my friend. By the way, I LOVE the Pastels singles disc that you recommended.

Interesting mix. Coupla notes: The Leaves had a Top 40 hit with "Hey Joe" (1965) and Tim Rose recorded it too before Hendrix did it. The Leaves' original version is a garage classic. Randy Newman wrote "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)" and recorded it (and so did Eric Burdon) before Three Dog Night did it. And if you're talking about the "My Girl" that was a big Motown hit in 1964 (written by Smokey Robinson), it was the Temptations, not Frankie Lymon. Lymon was pretty much washed up by 1957 and well on his way to drug rehab and (soon thereafter) death.

i knew someone else had done 'hey joe' prior to hendrix, just didn't know who (ever heard the soft cell version? it's completly bonkers!); and i never knew that anyone else besides 3DN had done "mama told me...". cool. as with all of these notations, i usually just reference the artist who'd done the version of the song that i'd known previously; i appreciate your input and thanks for the notes, nautticat...
