Wonderful originals, wonderful covers

The Dark End of the Street

First performed by James Carr which has then remained as his defining piece.

One of many covers – Andrew Strong in the film The Commitment, about a group of English boys aspiring to appropriate soul music. Mr. Strong was only 16 in this film. Sobrang intense. (Nabasa ko somewhere na dito na-discover ang The Corrs).

A more recent syrupy rendition by the criminally sultry Cat Power.

Here Comes My Baby

First sung by Cat Stevens

A quite funky take by The Tremeloes

The Tremeloes live

Cover by indie heavyweight Yo La Tengo. (Album version sounds much better than this one).
