Sonic Overload 11/26/12

It’s time for the annual all-covers show. As in the past, no songs from tribute albums were played and I also try to avoid all-covers albums by an individual artist although I did make an exception or two. There are a lot of new additions to the playlist this year and some that haven’t been heard on the all-covers show in a number of years, along with a few perennials.

What makes a good cover version? I’m not looking for a carbon-copy rendition. Sure, some of the versions here are somewhat faithful to the original but many of them add a different wrinkle or end being a reworking. Occasionally, you can end up with a cover that eclipses the original, although that’s somewhat rare. It’s a long show, this week, stretching out nearly an extra quarter of an hour.
Sorry about my voice not sounding the best this week. I’ve had one hell of a cold for the past week or so and it’s taken a bit of a toll. If you think I’ve got it bad, Ellen’s had it for a couple of weeks now. Pass the cough syrup!
