    Absolutely digging Vanilla Fudge and their cover of The Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On" is excellent.

    April Wine is made a gentle ballad of the Beatles tempo song. Sounds very good, to my taste. [​IMG]

    I love The Beatles' uptempo version, because they juxtapose the cheerful melody with the underlying sadness. It's interesting to hear April Wine go for all-out melancholy. They were signed to EMI in the UK, so there could be a record company motive, or am I just being cynical?

    This blew my mind. I've ALWAYS loved Graham Bonnet as a singer and in this cover (which also features Slash on guitar) his vocals are beyond amazing and some of the best I've ever heard from him. :grinthumb

    After 41 pages this may have already been posted but I recently found my Deja Vu CD after it being missing for quite some time so I've been jamming on this quite a bit. Might just be the best CSNY song the guitar part rocks so darn hard.

    You can embed the actual vids hailey :3
    just highlight everything after the = on youtube vid URL, copy and past into chat box, click "go advanced" then highlight the text you copy an pasted -> click the little YT button at the top of text box, it wraps some words around the code and voila.

    I like this one here, first verse is so psychedelic, kicks in at about 1:30
    Flaming Lips covering Breathe - Pink Floyd from the legendary album DSotM.
    (Originally a bootleg form TFL called darker side of the moon)
