  • Buffalo Springfield covers

    Sie Flytipper's recent excellent mix for Active Listener reminded me how great Colin Bluntstone / Neil McAtrhur's version of Hung Upside Down was.



    Mike Hurst does a great version to, which isn't on YouTube yet.
    May stick it up later.

    This got me thinking about how widely covered Buffalo Springfield have been.
    There's obviously For What It's Worth, which must have tons of versions, though a recent Russian find is one of the most unusual I've encountered:



    I've always been a sucker for the Carpenters' proto yacht rock take of Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing:


    Percy Sledge's version of Kind Woman slays me every single time . .


    and Friar Tuck & The Monks stonking version of Mr. Soul strips the song down to primal roots:


    What are your faves?

            Bought this when it came out, and this thread reminded me to fetch it out and give it a spin.

            Everyone tear down your own little wall
            That keeps you from being a part of it all
            Because you've got to be one with the one and all
            You've just got to be close to it all

                  And another Mr Soul - Houston Fearless



                  Glen Yarbrough Everybody's Wrong



                  Can't forget UK proggers Yes doing Everydays (drags on longer than it needs to but hey, its self indulgent prog)



                  There's obviously countless versions of For What It's Worth but I think The Staple Singers do it best.

                    Got this LP yesterday . . .



                    . . . and it opens with a mad funky rock take of For What It's Worth . . .

                      I was going to mention the People LP when I did my previous post. Check out the Fresh Air (Amaret label) LP for an equally quick tempo funky rock version of For What It's Worth

                        Yeah, forgot that one.
                        Maybe better than the PEOPLE version, actually.
                        I've got the 45 but not the LP.

                          I'm a big fan of the LP, as is Mr Sayers. Definitely worth investigation Hugh.
