Blow Me Down (With A Feather)

 Greetings.

This month's show is entirely covers, plus a couple of remixes. A great cover is when the song sounds like it was always that way. It doesn't imitate or replace, but stands alone as an original piece of art. Also, for maximum effect, the better know the original tune the more interesting the successful cover. Anything by The Beatles is a good place to start...

Correction! At 1:35:56 I say that Randy & The Rainbows 'Denise' was released in 1983. It should, of course, be 1963.

 I found so many wonderful covers that I intend to do another such collection soon.
