Re: (TV) more covers...!/MC5!!(

Oops i meant to write"don't start me talking"-( the Sonny Boy Williamson
song covered by the Dolls )-not "Human being" obviously...memory is starting
to go in me ole age!...the Dolls really made this no. their own...however
their take on "Showdown", charming though it is in a white boy shambly kinda
way, is not a patch on the original by Archie Bell and the Drells-a fab
record!...another great cover version i heard again recently is the Faces
doing Macca's "maybe i'm amazed"-the Faces were much under-rated i
think...shame Ron W. got enticed away to join the stones and play second
fiddle / court jester to lord keef of the manor-he was a real talent in his
own right and a good songwriter to boot...

Also i'd like to say how much i love "Back in the USA" too-a damn-near
masterpiece imo- i think BOTH guitarists are/were awesome players and
compliment each other perfectly ...so hey no more dissing Wayne!.....don't
forget the wonderful "High Time" either btw!!!!!
(Finally-the solo on "Looking at you" BURNS!!!!!!!)
