Comment:

There are some obvious ones in here and some obscure ones. Some are on other mixes of mine, but I just couldn't leave them out. The "Oh, Atlanta" that Alison Krauss is covering is not the song by Little Feat, but a different one by Bad Company (later coverd by The Atlanta Rhythm Section). I remember the original "Rubber Band Man" from the 70's, but I don't know who did it -- if you know, please leave me a note. I don't know if a rendition of a traditional song should properly be considered a cover, but many folks will know "(Cold) Rain and Snow" as a Grateful Dead song, so I thought including an Old Time/Bluegrassy version would be a nice contrast, even though it's more of an old take on the song than a new take. Speaking of bluegrass, Psychograss's rendition of Hendrix is both amazingly faithful to the original while still being authentically bluegrass in style -- you've just gotta hear it to believe it.
