CW: Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Benevento/Russo Duo: Another instrumental take here, this one they dedicate to The Slip’s Brad Barr. Speaking of which, you can find another great rendition of this song on the LMA that in addition to The Duo, features Andrew Barr & Marc Friedman from The Slip. Source: 7-4-2003

Brothers Past: Most of the covers are pretty to-the-point this week, thankfully we have Brothers Past to extend their take to the 10-minute mark before dropping into their next song. A nice recording of these guys. Source: 3-31-2005

Clare & The Reasons: This terrific ensemble landed on my radar when they opened for Vic Chesnutt last month. They’re a great group to catch live and also be sure to give their new album Arrow a listen.

JamisonParker: This Alternative Rock Duo contributed this track to a nifty little compilation caled Punk Goes 80′s. Funny, their cover actually sounds a bit Indie. Source: Punk Goes 80′s – Compilation

Patti Smith: Patti Smith returns to Cover Wars, last being featured in the Boy In The Bubble version, which also comes off this studio release of covers. Source: Twelve

Rane: Connecticut’s finest Progressive Pop Rock band hasn’t been playing out much this year but they do have one gig coming up November 28th in Manchester, CT. They will also be releasing a new studio effort in the Spring of 2010. Lead singer Alan Veniscofsky is a great fit for this cover. Source: 7-21-2006

Checking in on last week’s Lenny (Stevie Ray Vaughan) Cover Wars, The Bridge has overtaken Umphrey’s McGee and currently sits on top with just under 50% of the vote.

    This Duo version also features the one and only Reed Mathis on bass. You should point that out. Epic version.
