Covers of Todd's Material
I got the new Paul Gilbert CD, "Fuzz Universe" and there is a guitar instrumental version of Todd's "Blue Orpheus" from A Capella on there as song #5. It's pretty cool.You can buy the album from iTunes or from Amazon.com
I noticed the cover version section is missing a few things. Terry Hall does "I Saw the Light" on 'Laugh" from 1997. I think it may have been a single too, or at least it was a track on a single. Alison Krauss did "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference" on "Forget About It".
Kim Wilde does a very good version of Todd's song, "Lucky Guy" (from the "Hermit Of Mink Hollow" album) on her album, "Close". IMHO, she really makes the song sound like it should sound.
Joe Jackson did a cover of 'Couldn't I Just Tell You' on his latest cd 'Volume 4' as an import only. It's an incredible version, I must say! It really rocks
Mandy Moore has a cover of Can We Still Be Friends on her new CD Coverage (which is all covers).
I just saw an ad on IFC for a new movie called "Camp", which features a cover of "The Want Of A Nail" on the soundtrack, and also uses that track in the ad.
Re;Re-Rundgrenized, I know you'll be hearing of other covers or the same ones over and over but here's my two cents
Exile's first album on Wooden Nickel in 73 had two! Todd covers, "Devil's Bite" and J.O.V. Producer was Bill Traut which may have had something to do with it!!!! All the best - Don in Vancouver
Last night at the Moogy/Nazz show, Moogy mentioned that Guns and Roses is doing a cover of "Dust In The Wind" on their new album. Here is the link to hear the track. http://www.mygnr.com/next/next.html (i couldn't play the file so i hope it's not a mistake)
A rock band called from Ireland, Future Kings of Spain, have recorded "Love Of The Common Man" as a bonus track on their debut CD single. You should check it out. It rawks!!! I hear they're in a New York studio at present recording their debut album.
Raging Slab does an impressive job with "Little Red Lights" on their latest cd. Here's the link.
