    They had great marketing and extremely good sell through to their audience who were keen on identifying themselves with the group.

    The whole album is covers, as far as I know. Mostly old blues songs. Apparently the back story is that the REM guys were playing on Zevon's "official" solo album at the time, and they pretty much got drunk and did a bunch of covers for the Hell of it... and somebody eventually realized they might be able to sell it as an album. Wore out the cassette copy I had of the album. Took me years to find it on CD, as it had long been out of print at the time. Finally turned up in a local record store. Not sure if they ever did a re-issue or not.

    For me they are one of those bands where they only have one well known song and it's a cover.

    Name other artists like that - Quiet Riot?

    Hippy Hippy Shake?

    I saw them that year, around Christmas. WMMS simulcast the show, it was a Sunday night. Found a recording of it a few years ago. A nice surprise.

    They played Hippy Hippy Shake late in the set and 2/3rds of the crowd left right after.

    Got to see Dan Baird twice over the last couple years. He's retired from touring.

    They played Hippy Hippy Shake late in the set and 2/3rds of the crowd left right after.

    Got to see Dan Baird twice over the last couple years. He's retired from touring.
    Half the people who heard that song probably thought they wrote it. The original version was by some obscure Australian dude in the late 1950s. The Beatles played it in their Hamburg club sets, and during their live sessions on the BBC, but they never put it on an album. There was a one hit wonder band called "Swinging Blue Jeans" which had a hit in the UK & US, but of course they were long gone by the time Georgia Satellites showed up.

    Georgia Satellites biggest hit was actually an original though. How could you forget this one?



    Sounded like it COULD have been a Stones cover, but it wasn't.

    They tried and tried to break.....and watched The White Stripes win with their concept. Covering the mighty Otis Redding.

    Keef famously said, "Mick and I wrote the song, but Linda owns it" Two for the price of one!!
