Classic Albums Covered – Bridge Over Troubled Water

Classic Albums Covered - Bridge Over Troubled Water

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.

  • Bridge over Troubled Water – Aretha Franklin
  • El Condor Pasa (If I Could) – The Worthless Son-in-Laws
  • Cecilia – Bruce Ruffin
  • Keep the Customer Satisfied – Gary Puckett
  • So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright – Madison Cunningham
  • The Boxer – Gypsy Wanderers
  • Baby Driver – Ben Vanderwal, Harry Mitchell, Karl Florisson, Alira Wilson
  • The Only Living Boy in New York – Everyone Is Dirty
  • Why Don’t You Write Me – Olivia Newton-John
  • Bye Bye Love – Stressor
  • Song for the Asking – John Guilt

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.
