Under Cover Again

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.
We go back under cover this week and listen to another 55 minutes of popular tunes performed by not so popular bands. We start of with two blistering mod covers of soul numbers: Heat Wave by The Who and I'll Keep Holding On by their less-successful but equally sharp contemporaries The Action. Then we're right into one of the oddest covers in the play list – the Residents' version of James Brown's This is a Man's, Man's World. My highlight this week is Caetano Veloso's touching re-imagining of Help.
