Okay, so I haven't actually made this tape yet, but I will. The format is pretty obvious: Side 1 is a cover, Side 2 is the original.
When compiling this list, I did try to avoid using "tribute" albums as much as possible (by that I mean one artist being covered by several different artists... for my purposes, one artist COVERING several different artists is okay).
With so many covers out there, this will definitely be part of a series.

Cool Idea. I had actually thought about doing something like this myself. Looking forward to Vol. II.

well, it ought to be entirely obvious by now, but i have a real weakness for cover versions. yes, i admit it. this is a swell idea, and a good round-up of covers and originals...well done, nubby g.

Love the Rufus cover. I'm a huge fan of both Loudon and Rufus. I saw Rufus and his sister Martha perform One Man Guy in Montreal. Very Nice.
