    Nuggets 316 – Covers IX 

    Wanda Jackson

    Reasons to love a cover;

    • It is a fresh version of a song that you already like;
    • It is a song by one of your favourite artists covering a song that you haven’t heard before.

    Another mix of covers follows. You will notice a change in the music player. Problems, problems… Click away and you will figure out what to do.

    I am particularly fond of the Juliana Hatfield cover of the Olivier Newton John song. She has turned it into a real banger.

    The Bennie & The Jets cover is also fab.

    Looking forward to seeing Teenage Fanclub when they play next year.

    Nuggets 288 – troubadours 11 

    Here’s a mix of darker songs with chinks of light. Fittingly the late Mr Cohen is on the cover.

    Dallas Silver Jews Natural Bridge

    Big fan of David Berman. Like Leonard Cohen he is a poet first and a reluctant performer.
