No, no no!

Go and sit on the naughty step and think about what you just wrote.

Everly Brothers - When Will I Be Loved, much better cover by someone whose name escapes me, you all know the one, it's a bit like Fleetwood Mac?

Maybe the Linda Ronstadt version?

Sir BigRedX, much as I respect your rockin' vampicity I must summon a weak croak of objection to the choice of The Sundays' reverb-bedevilled milquetoast version of Wild Horses. Please, for the sake of poor Gram Parsons' ghost, reconsider your position.

Now this, on the other hand, has legs.

Each to their own. I love the postal service version too, But the is something I love about the sound of the deadened piano.

Or possibly the Linda Peters (aka Thompson)/Sandy Denny version on The Bunch album (basically Fairport Convention + mates)

A close one, but this cover of "The Boxer" is fantastic.
Some of the Harmonies are terrific.
To be honest, I don't need any reason to post anything by Alison Krauss. She is a class Musician. :D
