OMG I've just heard Kate Bush's cod-reggae cover of Rocket Man on R2 and I don't think my ears are ever going to recover.  Please make it stop!  :sick:

I just heard an interesting update of Zappa's 'More Trouble Every Day' on the Jo Wiley show. This is a live version of it from 1973 by Frank, it's preceded by 'Son of Orange County', which is about Nixon, but can serve for Trump.

The albums Ms Hart has done with singing accountant Joe Bonamassa are well worth a spin.

Indeed ... this points to a good entree https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=29267.msg2395371#msg2395371


Just FTR Bonamassa is a perfect fit against the daydreams for myself dating back to the 70's when I was training to be annacountant. I confess I used to dream of playing guitar on stage. In my suit. I thought that would have been SOOOOO cool.

Also FTR, I can't play guitar like Mr Bonammassa. In case you wondered.

Not many people cover Joni. I think probably as its quite difficult.
Anyway someone has done the whole of Blue!

Tom Rush's brilliant 1968 album The Circle Game includes 3 Joni Mitchell covers including the title track.  The original No Regrets (covered, of course, by the Walker Brothers), is a thing of beauty (even if it is missing the big guitar solo).
