I'm not sure that you can have 'covers' of trad. songs, but anything by Rhiannon Giddens is great:

This is a rather enjoyable version of a simple swedish folk song by an Australian singing group

The Shooting Of did two gorgeous cover versions of Life on Mars and Five Years when I saw him live.  Going to see him as part of this tomorrow.  Oh, and if anyone's interested, I have a spare ticket.

Without opening the link, I am going to guess that the Aussie group will all be wearing hats. "To the left-oi!". I am rather partial to their Sufi song.

Joe Cocker's "The Letter" covered by Tedeschi Trucks Band

The contrast between Susan's speaking and singing voice makes me smile.

Spot-on.  I'm surprised they got away with the Sufi song, knowing how Barry Gibb is famously lacking in a sense of humour, but it's a great part of the live act.  And I love The Sweetest Kick", on the same album.

Sticking with the covers theme, their performance, with Show of Hands, of "Don't You Want Me?" is also worth seeking out on YT.

DJ Random has just played a cover of Comfortably Numb which I thought an odd choice for USAnian folkie Dar Williams.

The Disturbed version of The Sound of Silence that Lord Kenneth of Bruce has recently been playing on his R2 show is most excellent.

Gov't Mule who are really a Southern Rock/Blues band did some gigs and a CD where they covered the whole of Dark Side of the Moon (Dark Side Of The Mule).

That was strange.

And now DJ Random is on a Stevie Ray Vaughan plays Hendrix binge.  First "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" and then "Third Stone From The Sun".

I heard that on Mayo/Kermode's podcast last week and thought about posting it here, even though it is actually terrible (sorry, Legs, but it is). But then I checked out the video, which is totes hilar (or 'a bit Asgard', as one of Mayo/Kermode's correspondents put it):

Indeed. And you can't help it if your taste is terrible. ;)

Just heard this on 6music, which I've somehow never managed to hear before (even though according to wikipedia it was the band's only chart single) - Fairport Convention's French version of If You Gotta Go, Go Now. I love it!

https://youtu.be/AmmCSOpPzZc

Until now, I've only been familiar with the superb Manfred Mann version, though of course that is strictly a cover as well since it's a Bob Dylan song.

Nice. And on a related note:

Nina Simone's version of "Who knows where the time goes".
I still like Sandy's version with Fairport the best but the Nina version is different and good.
