So there was your standards With A Little Help From My Friends by Joe Cocker, For What It's Worth by Buffalo Springfield, Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison - no problem there, all good, all to be expected. Peace Train by Richie Havens - wait, what? OK I can forgive that, maybe Cat Stevens didn't want his version on there, he was still devoutly Islamic or something at the time and Richie Havens is from that era....so, not a bad marriage. Julian Lennon doing a Stones song? Erm, ok, still slightly significant, I suppose.
But wait - what's this? The Doors covered by The Escape Club
, if you can believe it; Was (Not Was)? The Indigo Girls? And the ultimate insult - 2, count 'em -TWO!- songs by Debbie Gibson!! *gasp!*
All this is not helped by, while researching this album (for memories sake
) I discovered a much better, unknown to me before now, 5 disc set from the TV show!
I was semi-aware that sometime in between original screening and now that they changed the version of With A Little.... from the start of the show.
I admit to tearing up at the final Happy Days episode. And a couple of MASH ones always get me too....
