Cover Version Albums

I’m a big fan of cover versions, here’s a few albums I have & enjoy:

Nouvelle Vague Presents New Wave

Nouvelle Vague Presents New Wave

A really good album full of squelchy 80s synthesizer. The Stranglers version of Walk on By is particularly good. Of course, Nouvelle Vague have released two superb cover albums themselves: Nouvelle Vague Vol.1 & Bande A Part.

Cosmosonica – Crazy Covers Vol 1

Cosmosonica - Crazy Covers Vol 1

A very eclectic selection of covers from the wonderful Tom Middleton. I really like the steel drum track by Lambeth Community Youth Steel Orchestra.

True Love Waits: Christopher O’Riley Plays Radiohead
