Classic Albums Covered – Beggars Banquet

Classic Albums Covered - Beggars Banquet

Steven Carter has way too much free time and the uncanny ability to listen to a hundred cover versions of the same song to try and find the interesting ones without going completely insane. Some songs have hardly been covered at all. Some have been covered way too many times. A few not at all. The results of this obsessive behaviour are assembled into rebuilds of classic albums made out of cover versions.

  • Sympathy For The Devil – Bob Wayne
  • No Expectations – Bill Perry, Richie Havens
  • Dear Doctor – The Beatlesons
  • Parachute Woman – BLUESBEGGARS, Louis Creiier
  • Jigsaw Puzzle – Flesh For Lulu
  • Street Fighting Man – Rage Against The Machine
  • Prodigal Son – Lightnin’ Wells
  • Stray Cat Blues – Johnny Winter
  • Factory Girl – The Urban Voodoo Machine
  • Salt Of The Earth – Ian McNabb

Somewhere out in the digital wastelands, where the media streams congeal to become vast rivers depositing layer upon layer of binary silt washed down from the great cities, a lone figure crouches at the bank patiently sifting through the filth, panning for sonic gold. Occasional flickers of brightness catch on his mind and another nugget is pulled from the dirt, an echo of an echo of the past, ready to be formed into ancient and delicate structures.
