    Cracking cover versions

    Keith Richards tell us in his autio biography that his manager locked him and Mick in the kitchen to start writing their own songs.

    He explains that up until very recently there was no such thing as the singer song writer. Songs were written by one group of artists and played by all types of musicians who brought their own interpretation to the music. These songs were called 'Standards' and can be heard and played many different ways.

    So post covers of songs which you like the interpretation of and share the wealth of creativity. This lot did a great job with a Lou Read song - Perfect Day

    Given my liking of twelve bar blues cannot believe I only found these guys, their work in the 70s and early 80s outstanding.
