Here’s what’s on Randy’s Vinyl Tap for 09/10 Dec 2017
On this edition of Vinyl Tap Randy Bachman delves into the Vinyl Tap mailbag once again. He’s not looking for Christmas cards or letters to Santa… he’s searching for more listener suggestions. This time, Randy has decided to put together another show that features covers of songs that Tap fans thought were better than the original.
A cover is a new version of a song done first by one artist and then re-done by another artist. Sometimes the cover is a copy, sometimes an interpretation and sometimes unrecognizable but almost all result in a question being asked… is the cover better than the original?
Of course it is purely subjective, no right or wrong answer and Randy will leave it up to the listeners to decide.
The artists trying to prove that their cover beats the original include Manfred Mann, The Beatles, Cyndi Lauper, Natalie Imbruglia, Blondie, Eric Clapton, Led Zepplin and many others.
So… cover or original… which is better? You can be the judge when you tune in to the Tap.
