He must be trying to be funny because anybody who can’t appreciate the genius of The Band needs a musical education.


#242

Looking forward to the musical education :laughing:


#243

One of the greatest, if not the greatest soul singer.

Maybe “The Band” could teach him a few things, after covering one of his songs :laughing:

It’s not like football mate , you don’t have one band or singer you support at the expense of all others . The Band covered this song because they, and Levon in particular admired Marvin Gaye. I prefer The Bands version , but didn’t diss Marvin or didn’t troll anyone . A thread about covers will always have bands covering others music .

For balance heres a decent cover of a Band song.

Upvoted, not for the songs (neither the Band or Marvin Gaye are really my thing) but because I didn’t see it as trolling, just a contribution to the thread. A lot of people like The Band.

I don’t like a lot of the stuff on the music threads but never took it as trolling…

So endeth the sermon :innocent:

btw … I realise Lord D can be a controversial carachter

Back to the tunes .

Leon Russell’s " Song for you"'has been covered hundreds of times . Wille Nelson nailed it here under pressure as the great man looked on.

The best cover of one of hers is Stephen Still’s arrangement of Woodstock, so much better than Matthews soppy effort.

This live version is quite the most beautiful performance…the consummate performer, singing a song written as a 21 year old adding 30 years experience. Reduces me to a blubbering wreck every time…
