Cool cool cover versions

With a lively debate about "Re-Machined" going on in the 'Album Reviews' forum, I thought that it is about time to to start a thread about cover versions.

Glenn has been featured on quite a few tribute albums and laid down his own versions of various songs whenever he had the artistic freedom.

So what is you take on the topic?
1:1 reproduction of the original or create something new out of a classic tune?

Additions very welcome!

Cheers,
Christian

P.S. Here's a good one to start with...

Thumbs up Boxer - Hey Bulldog

A fantastic version of the Beatles classic with great (and virtuoso!) bits added that are not in the original.

Feat. the great late duo of Mike Patto on vocals and Ollie Halsall on guitar.

Icon47 Kevin Gilbert - Kashmir

The late, great Kevin Gilbert covers the Zep classic here -
this version was rejected by Atlantic when Gilbert handed it in for inclusion on 'Enconium - A Tribute to Led Zeppelin' back in 1995, and so it only appeared on the bonus disc for the Limited Edition version of KG's solo album 'Thud'.

I really like the Swedish cover versions, they are pretty cool!

Here's a jazzy and very funny version of Smoke On The Water playing in Berlin:

Redd Kross - Yesterday Once More

Here's my favourite from the "If I Were A Carpenter" Album, a Carpenters Tribute Album from 1994 that included some excellent contributions!

Cool The Rotosonics - The Final Countdown

Now impossible to find, the CD is long deleted, it's not on iTunes or youtube.
So, here's AUDIO only! my favoutite cover version of Europe's 'The Final Countdown' from a band called The Rotosonics.
I have their sole album on CD. It's great!
Enjoy!

Cheers,
Christian
