Best record of covers

These days I'm totally addicted to "She loves you" by The Twilight Singers. Amazing collection of covers permormed with a lot of soul and coolness.
And I was thinking of other albums made only of covers. What is your favourite? Maybe "Moondog matinee" by The Band? "Pin ups" by Bowie? "Strange little girls" by Tori Amos? "How sweet it is" by Joan Osborne? "Apocalyptica plays Metallica by four cellos" by Apocalyptica? "In a metal mood" by Pat Boone? "The moog cook book" by The Moog cook book? Tell your favourite!

I really enjoyed Dolly Parton's most recent effort, Those Were the Days. Not only covers of songs of the 60s, but in most cases duets with either the writer or original singer of each song. A notable exception is Blowing in the Wind - Dylan declined Dolly's invitation, the arrogant bastard.

I liked the 2 Nanci Griffith's efforts and I like the Band's Moondog Matinee set.

I think Johnny Cash' American Recordings series can be regarded as a cover collection, even if he wrote some of the songs himself.

I am struggling to come up with a collection of cover versions that I play regularly. The WZ collection Enjoy Every Sandwich is probably my favourite.

Oh and I suppose the debut Oasis album is pretty good too.

I love the albums released by Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, a punk 'supergroup' made up of members of NOFX, Foo Fighters and some others. They've done four albums of 'themed' covers... ie an albums of songs from musicals, sixties pop, eighties/ninties soul... all played in a breakneck punk stylee. Silly but fun...

"Golden Throats" collection. Classic!!! William Shatner's take on "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" is topped only by his take on "Mr. Tamborine Man". Nothing in my opinion, NOTHING however tops Sebastion(sp??) Cabots lecturing take on "Like a Rolling Stone". He does it as a reading, and the tone is very much akin to Mr. French lecturing Buffy and Jody on how he "told them so" with regard to to some sort of trouble they got into to. Imagine a lecturing tone, in his words, to "Once upon a time you dressed so fine, threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?" Perfect! He also does "It Ain't Me Babe" on it. Again, in spoken word. On that one, he tries to sound like some sort of randy playboy who is letting one of his conquests down softly, after having no doubt seduced her. Classic! You can hear pieces of these songs here : http://www.fadetoblack.com/hallofshame/index1.html#sc

Yea,sadly that is one I do not have. As far as I know it is out of print and online places are charging an arm and a leg for it. All instrumentals and from the few pieces I have heard,very good at that.
