Tell your daddy and your mama too.
The first various artist all-cover CD I ever purchased was Rubaiyat: Elektra's 40th Anniversary, which was a collection of Elektra artists covering songs by Elektra artists I picked up my freshman year of college, 1990. It's been out of print a while now, but here are a few of the tracks that piqued my interest enough to initially shell out the dough for a double disc of songs I'd never heard before. [Remember when we had to buy albums without having heard them first? If not, I envy your youth!] I think I might've posted one or two of these back in the day before anyone even read this thing, but I can't remember and don't feel like hunting the archives. Note to self: Get working on creating a list so you can remember what was posted when!
The Cure "Hello, I Love You" (The Doors cover) The Cure "Hello, I Love You (A Slight Return)" (sort of a The Doors cover) The Kronos Quartet "Marquee Moon" (Television cover) The Sugarcubes "Motorcycle Mama" (Sailcat cover) The Pixies "Born in Chicago" (Paul Butterfield Blues Band cover) The Might Be Giants "One More Parade" (Phil Ochs cover)
