Looks like a cool set of covers. BTW the Carpenters were not the first to do "Superstar;" there are older versions with racier lyrics than Karen could bring herself to sing.

There's so much to smile about on this mix. Strummer SY and JC in particular. By the way did you stick Hayseed at the end of this mix because they're a bit rubbish?

Some interesting hand-offs here from original to cover version. I would not have thought of most of these performers
picking up these particular tunes.

I'm not crazy about cover versions but this is a good one.

Nice one.

Wow! I have never had so many comments! Thanks for all the kind words, people! I sincerely appreciate every one of them. Perhaps I'll do a volume II (though, as always, the sequel will probably pale).

Sammyg: no, I actually I like Hayseed Dixie. they're a one-joke band, but I dig the musicianship.

Mixxer: I did not know that, though I did hear a very slinky, soulful version of Superstar at Tower the other day and was bowled away.

To all who imply a trade: I am very sorry, but my copying capacity is limited. I have a stereo unit that will not make copies of copies. Thus, to make a copy of this, I'd have to spend another 2 hours making it again by hand. This just isn't productive, and I don't have that kind of time. So I really am sorry --- I'd love to trade with some of you --- but it's not feasible.

As a general rule, I loathe covers, but this is altogether rather nice. Good job.
