Dtls on 'Who Covers Who'
>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:
Who Covers Who Various Artists CM Discs / Bad Girl CM 006 CD
1. I Can See For Miles Hyperhead
2. Pictures of Lily Ian McLagan And The Bump Band
3. The Kids Are Alright The Revs
4. Bargain Buck Pets
5. Boris The Spider Mint 400
6. The Good's Gone Telescopes
7. In The City (*) Swervedriver
8. Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere Alex Chilton
9. Substitute Blur
10. Baba O'Riley The Hinnies
11. Glowgirl The Mess
12. The Good's Gone (slight reprise)
(*) 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.
