Excellent music blog You Ain’t No Picasso has gone to the bother (thanks!) ofcollecting MP3s of the 56 (and counting) live recordings of The Decemberists covering other artists’ songs. Few of them are obvious covers.
I admit it: I love covers. They fail as often as they work, but when they work they send a giddy shiver up my spine. That’s probably why I like Puritan Blister so much.
