Greg Dulli Covers

I think that Dulli's best covers are when he takes a stone cold soul classic and Dullifies it adding that nearly out of tune hoarse voice while Rick McCollum adds some licks and they generally beef up the sound. Here's a prime example you really shouldn't cover Curtis and the Whigs can't better the opening track from Mayfield's seminal debut from 1970 but they do put in a rather fine performance on this live cd.

The Afghan Whigs - (Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below We're All Gonna Go

As an extra treat from the same live recording Going To Town that starts off with a little bit of Stevie Wonder which doesn't quite hit the mark but interesting none the less.

Never heard these before. The Curtis cover is particularly terrific. Not sure how you'll feel about the comment, but it feel like a very E-Street Band arrangement to me. Great stuff.

I can see where you’re coming from Swede.
