Cover Wars: And It Stoned Me Edition

David Gray: Singer/songwriter Gray humorously botches this cover to lead us off this week. Gray is playing piano and is joined by his touring bass player. Source: 1-27-2003

Gov’t Mule: Warren has also performed this with Phil Lesh & Friends. If you’re looking for a recording of that check out 4-20-2001 (heady). Definitely a rarity in Mule’s repertoire as has it being played only eight times in the last eight years. Source: 8-8-2008

CW Cross-Polination: Warren Haynes & Dave Schools perform And It Stoned Me in the Red Rocks parking lot:

Jackie DeShannon: The songwriter that brought us What The World Needs Now and Put A Little Love In Your Heart recorded this on her 1971 release titled Songs.

Jerry Garcia Band: Oh man. This is smooth. There is some great late ’80s Garcia vocals on this one. I recommend grabbing the full show for the audio quality alone. Source: 11-26-1988

Mr. Blotto: Mr. Blotto is no stranger to Cover Wars, but it’s been a while since they’ve been included. A straight-ahead performance and solid as always. Source: 1-17-1998

Widespread Panic: If you were downloading music illegally off the Internet around the turn of the century, perhaps you grabbed WSP’s studio version off of Napster, I know I did. That track was cut for the 1995 release Hempilation: Freedom Is NORML (heady). What I’ve got on the playlist is a live acoustic version from a Sit & Ski show from 1996. A Panic live staple, still in the rotation. Source: 2-2-1996

And that’s all we’ve got this week. No live videos of Van Morrison performing the song up on YouTube, if there were we’d share them with you.
