Bonnie Covers

It's always fun to compare originals and covers, and even more so when we're talking Bonnie Prince Billy. The lion from Louisville has always been keen on interpreting the songs of other musicians - check out a most fascinating list here - and the results are nearly always interesting to say the least. Below's a first batch of cool ones, and there's more on the way.

John Phillips - Someone's Sleeping
Bonnie Prince Billy - Someone's Sleeping
E.C. Ball & Orna Ball - John The Baptist
Bonnie Prince Billy - John The Baptist
Bob Marley & The Wailers - Babylon System
Bonnie Prince Billy - Babylon System
Kate Wolf - Early Morning Melody
Bonnie Prince Billy - Early Morning Melody

You may also want to check out John and Beverley Martin's 'John The Baptist', which I once saw BPB perform a fantastic version of it, combined with the song here. Good post, ta.
