Robin (Your Daily Dose)I hitched a ride on their bumper featuring Todd Rundgren songs covered by other artists, and having exhausted them, I am continuing with songs by other artists that Todd has covered.
In 2011, Todd Rundgren released an album of covers of Robert Johnson tunes (or as he put it, an album of covers of British guitarists from the 60's covering Robert Johnson).
The songs had a heavy rock guitar arrangement (with bass and drums), where Johnson's originals were acoustic affairs performed solo and recorded in a hotel room.
I could not find a Todd clip for my favorite of the bunch (Dust My Broom), so here is the one I was able to find, along with the RJ original.
ROBERT JOHNSON-TRAVELING RIVERSIDE BLUES
TODD RUNDGREN-TRAVELING RIVERSIDE BLUES
Which one do you like better?
This will be my last BOTB post (out of Todd material), as well as my last post for a while (at least for the month of April, since I am not participating in the A to Z endeavor).
I will try to visit as many A to Z posts as possible, and, of course, the BOTB posts while I am on sabbatical.
