          Found this while looking for an old Chris Farlowe tune (don't ask). Talk about a note for note cover, Rod Stewart was impressed enough to invite the band to perform the song with him on a tv special.

            Funny how the Stereophonics guy doesn't try to sing so much like Rod (like he does on the record) when he's on stage with the real Rod.

            Impressive cover though. If I heard it on the radio, I might have thought it was the original.

            Now let's hear them do "Bad n Ruin" or "Sweet Lady Mary".

            Actually, there does seem to be a FACES influence in the Stereophonics own material, upon further review......

                The amount of certifiably weird shit you can find at Youtube never ceases to amaze me. Case in point: This track was recorded for some sort of odd and obscure tribute album of Carpenters songs in the early nineties. This tune is pretty much what you'd expect, the typical dour take on a pop song that was all the rage a couple of decades ago. What does stand out is the uncanny way Johnette Napolitano's (Concrete Blonde) voice sounds like Karen Carpenter in places, giving off an almost eery effect that is fairly unsettling.

                  I've got that Carpenters tribute CD. Some interesting reinterpretations of their songs on there. I thought Shonen Knife put a different spin on this one.....

                        Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers still put on one Hell of a live show, but let's face it, they lost an essential piece of the puzzle when Stan Lynch left the band. They even used to let him sing once in a while....
