          Pearl Jam covering a Split Enz tune.



          A fairly stunning cover of Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain", which begins with a bit of Hendrix' "Little Wing".

                Eddie Vedder definitely loves his covers. Pearl Jam's done some great ones over the years...

                    The Dickies did their share of covers as well. I still have this 45. You get the impression that they played an old Moody Blues album at 45 rpm instead of 33.

                      I'll take the Dickies version of Nights in White Satin over the original time. Curious where that version of Gigantor comes from though. Every live Dickies recording I ever heard sounded like crap, but not that one.

                          These bums weren't too shabby when it came to playin' a cover or two. True to his word, Dave only learned a bit of the words, but he did learn the tune.

                              I wondered about that as well. It could be a fake, because with the exception of the guitars being mixed differently, it pretty much sounds like the studio version I have on Great Dictations.
