Covered With Soul Vol. 13

In the 13th installment of Covered With Soul we have interpretations of hits by The Mamas And Papas, Bob Dylan, Bobbie Gentry, Joe South, John Denver, Glen Campbell, Dionne Warwick, Neil Sedaka, Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers, The Beatles (twice), Etta James, Tommy Edwards, Bobby Vinton, The Everly Brothers, Simon & Garfunkel, Bobby Darin (or Tim Hardin) and Steam, as well as a song from the Hammerstein & Rogers musical Carousel.

For two tracks, those by Ike & Tina Turner and Cissy Houston, I have no year of recording; they appeared on greatest hits type of albums. Both must date to the late 1960s or ealy 1970s, but I have no specific year.

As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R, for which homebaked covers are included.

1. Bobby Womack – California Dreamin’ (1969)
2. Maxine Weldon – Like A Rolling Stone (1970)
3. Ike & Tina Turner – Ode To Billie Joe

11. Chaka Khan – We Can Work It Out (1981)
12. Marlena Shaw – At Last (1982)
13. Tyrone Davis – It’s All In The Game (1973)

    As always, a great selection of top artists. I have many of these on LPs, so when you are reminded of them it’s a buzz to drag the LP out again. …. Thank you.

    I’m still a lurker, just don’t comment as much lately. The perils of parenthood!

    Amazing compilation and a great job of making all of these tunes iPod ready. I am a Cover Connoisseur and I scour the World Wide Web in search of them. Too many ‘cover’ sites contain covers of contemporary tunes that I am not familiar with so I am a daily visitor to Any Major Dude and I have never been let down.
    Thank you for your hard work.

    What a great series!!
    Unfortunately I only recently discovered this.
    Could you please, please, re-up Covered With Soul 13? (and maybe Covered With Soul 12?)
    Fortunately Covered with Soul 11 is still available, and that’s where the archive stops. Alas!
