a musical cul-de-sac (1)
Some of the greatest rock music over the years has been covered in some very interesting ways. I've been kicking around the idea of exploring some of the most delicious covers and bringing them to you in this little grey space. Today I begin with what I feel is one of the most beautiful renditions of a classic rock song - A Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum.
Here's the original, in case you need to refresh your memory from 1967.
And here is the brilliant rendition by Annie Lennox. Another by Eric Clapton and final gripping version from Joe Cocker.
