Roxy Music – More Than This / Jealous Guy

There were essentially three versions of Roxy Music. The Eno Years '71-'73, which encompassed the first two records Roxy Music and For Your Pleasure--and featured an experimental, avant garde, glam rock group. The second version was the Sophisticated Rocker period '74-'75 during which the band blossomed musically and they released the incredible 3 album run of Stranded, Country Life and Siren, after which the group broke up to pursue solo ventures. In 1979, the band reformed and lastly (also sadly least) became the dance-pop Roxy Music/what would become solo BRIAN FERRY that would be the most successful version of the band. In their defense, this period did produce the lushly beautiful Avalon, and Manifesto has it's moments. Still, the era pales in comparison to the first 5 albums, IMHO.
From Avalon (and obviously lip-synched) 1982

We'll end on their swell cover of John Lennon's "Jealous Guy", a song Bryan Ferry makes his own.

J. Roddy Walston & The Business – “Lucille”

Here is a band that I really dig. In fact, I found this cover just because I wanted to play them this week. The Little Richard part is just bonus.

Seriously, these guys have never been played on this site, near as I can tell. Do yourslf a favor and check out both "Heavy Bells" and "Marigold" and go from there.

The Revivalists – “To Love Somebody”

The Revivalists are another band that I've been enjoying quite a bit, and their more country take on this Bee Gees song (the best Bee Gees song?) hits that thing where you want a cover song to add something new, and not just duplicate what went before. Anyway, I dig this.
