Ayooo! Here is part 2.
Recording a “covers special” has been on my to-do list for a few years now. Quite happy to finally get around to it after debating some very tough choices with myself. I think all serious music lovers have a love and hate relationship with cover versions. It just either really works or can be the absolute most cringe-worthy musical moments.
So here we go! This is a two-part special featuring my favorite versions. One day I will probably need to revisit the concept since I left out many versions I adore.
Hope you discover a few lovely tunes. Wishing you all a nice day!
