I slightly prefer the TDN cover, but both are good.
That was entertaining as heck. Thanks.
You're welcome. I come back to that one by Arlo every now and then when I start to wonder whether all the time I have devoted listening to music has been time well spent.

And, indeed, it has been.

Two outstanding versions of one wonderful song.

Song: Who Do You Love

Original Artist: Bo Diddley

Cover Artist: George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Song: Desperado

Original Artist: Eagles

Cover Artist: Linda Ronstadt

The original version by the Eagles is more than decent - one of my all-time favorites by them.

But sometimes, when Linda does a song, she just owns it.

As she does here.
