Dread Zepp...sweet.....good one, Robert Plant is a big fan. I too am a big fan.....seen em a few times and got wild with em...really nice guys. Spirits in the Night and Statesboro Blues were two great examples. Also Blinded by the Light ,....Dreams...another good one, as a rule covers suck but sometimes they bring new listeners and make history. For me Foghat covers were great.....Terraplane Blues, one of my favorites from Robert Johnson.

I always thought Jimmy Buffett did excellent covers of artists he appreciates, here are a few off the top of my head:

 Jesse Winchester's Rhumba Man

 James Taylor's Mexico

 Grateful Dead's Scarlet Begonias w/ Sonny Landreth on Slide

 Guy Clark's Boats to Build

 Jerry Jeff Walker's North East Texas Women.


 Linda Ronstadt doing Chuck Berry's Back in the USA


 Of course Aretha Franklin doing Otis Redding's Respect is an example of making the cover your own. Covers are a time honored tradition in music, you either have to play it straight or do a new twist on familiar material. Me, I love covers. Heck the Stones made a career out of covers! :lol:
