Very nice versions! Covers of 'Luxury' are rare... I ended up including a rough run-through by the Hammersmith Gorillas that wasn't released until decades later (great vocal though):

A cover version of "Paint It Black" shouldn't go unmentioned in my opinion.
"Rot Und Schwarz" by Czech pop singer/crooner Karel Gott (1939-2019), called "The Golden Voice from Prague", who was also famous in Germany and Austria.
A rather idiosyncratic interpretation in German.

I included artists and genres from around the world, but I must confess that I pretty much avoided covers that are not in English. Besides, the arrangement is similar to Chris Farlowe's version (which IS in the book!).

For anyone interested, I did a UK radio interview about the book yesterday (you won't learn anything new about the Stones, but it's quite good fun!)...

I very nearly included that one (if ever I do a similar book on The Beatles, I must include her great cover of 'The Ballad of John & Yoko'!).

Yes, impressive list!

What about the Slovenian band Laibach's versions of "Sympathy for the Devil"?

Haha! Problem with the 'warhorses' of course is that there are so many different versions to choose from.

I like it when artists cover a relatively obscure song, and then very much make it their own. For example, I'd never choose Frank Black & The Catholics' DOWN IN THE HOLE over the Stones, but kudos to him for covering the song in such a unique style:

Wow, thanks for posting that! I am a big fan of Frank Black & the Catholics (I like the Pixies too, but I think his solo work is much more interesting) and I didn't know this one. Very cool.

Most of those Norton singles are included in the book. Wish they'd reissue them all on CD!

I just contacted Norton records, suggesting that they issue a CD. Some of these certainly deserve to be more widely heard! Here's Bloodshot Bill's version of 'High and Dry':

Honoured to be included in Richie Unterberger's 'Top Thirty or so Music History Books of 2022' list (I'm surprised the official Charlie Watts biography didn't make it though):

Have a great 2023!

She (or her management) didn't respond to my request for an interview, but I did include her cover of 'Moonlight Mile'.

Was this actually released (vinyl, CD, download, streaming, etc)? I didn't include covers that were solely performed online or in concert.

Additionally, I don't find it that great... so it would never have made the book, even if it was properly released.
