Covers from the vaults

Several new releases with (mostly) unreleased covers from the vaults:

1. The US band Green on Red has a previously unreleased version of Billy on their compilation CD BBC Sessions, recorded 1988-1992.
Available from: / / /

2. The new 4 CD-box Live at the BBC by Fairport Convention contains several covers, including previously unreleased versions of Down In the Flood, Open the Door Richard (Homer), Lay Down Your Weary Tune, as well as Percy's Song and Si tu dois partir which were previously released on Heyday.

3. The new DVD by Santana, Hymns For Peace: Live at Montreux 2004, includes covers of Blowin' In The Wind and Just Like a Woman.

4. Not recent, but new to me, is the Chicago ska band Deal's Gone Bad cover of Masters Of War on their 2005 retrospective The Longest Happy Hour: 1998-2003.
