Listened to this a few weeks ago. Pretty good version of Train in Vain.

As for my favorite?



Michael Stipe... Thom Yorke... Dinosaur Jr.... Frank Black... the National and many more great artists paying tribute to Connecticut's pride, Mark Mulcahy of the seminal college rock band Miracle Legion. When I heard that these guys were doing this I was so happy, and it really paid off. Great songs, great covers, great album.

El Michels Affair - Enter The 37th Chamber

Funk interpretations of some classic Wu Tang tracks. I think the band has been backing the Clan since early 2000's. They stay fairly true to the original material, sometimes branching out a bit.

Duel Of The Iron Mics
C.R.E.A.M.
Mystery Of Chessboxin'
Can It All Be So Simple
Uzi (Pink Ring)
Interlude
Glaciers Of Ice
Cherchez La Ghost
Criminology
Heaven & Hell
Bring Da Ruckus
Protect Ya Neck
Incarcerated Scarfaces
Shimmy Shimmy Ya
Outro

Luther Wright & The Wrongs - Rebuild the Wall

Bluegrass version of Pink Floyd's The Wall by Canadian band Luther Wright and the Wrongs. A few words have been switched around but it really shows how much Pink Floyd has influenced people of all genres.

Both give good interpretations of songs that are fairly well known. One of the worst? Dark Side Of The Moon-Trance Remix's. Most of the tracks are unrecognisable and barely qualify as Trance.

Dub Side of the Moon is a terrific album, I own their cover album of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (terrific as well)

A couple I like:

The Smithereens - Meet the Smithereens
The Dirtbombs - Ultraglide in Black

It looks like I will be seeing BTBAM twice in the space of a few days in February as they are supporting Lamb Of God on tour. I know quite a few on here really rate them but I couldn't get into them. Maybe seeing them live will change my mind as they are supposed to pretty good live.
