Dtls on 'Who Covers Who'

Hi There,

>I saw a new CD in the store the other day titled "Who covers Who" which 
>was was, not surprisingly, a collection of groups doing Who tracks.

I bought this 2 or 3 wks ago in the HMV store in Manchester:

                                 Brilliant Corners

(*) b-side of 'I'm A Boy' (it says in the inlay notes)

I've been listening to it a lot over the past week. All of the covers are 
true to the spirit of the original songs, there isn't one that makes me 
wince or want to skip to the next track. Perhaps the least successful is 
the Alex Chilton one which is too close a copy. All IMHO of course.

The inlay notes are pretty good and give catalog nos of each Who original 
with best chart placing and date. Also recording details for each cover. 
I think the sleeve design is pretty good too.

Recommended listening!
