... even better than the original.
I'd have to compromise on that one. I love almost every live/unreleased version of "Immigrant Song" I've ever heard from Zeppelin... but the one that made it onto Led Zeppelin III kinda bores me. If we're doing album version vs. Reznor & co, I'd opt for the latter -- but in all other cases, the decision goes soundly to Zeppelin.
I was going to post the the Amazing Instrumental Cover Version of Zeppelin's Immigrant Song, but this thread is not about me... Oh what the heck...
Led Zep is like AC/DC. Impossible act(s) to follow and the "covers" fall short of the original; generally speaking, that is.
Great White covers several of their songs very very well. They don't get fancy or try to doctor-up or modify a song. This is Great White's best CD.
Great White is composed of musicians that CAN play. They just have a problem writing songs that appeal to the "huddled masses yearning to breathe free."SONGS ON THE CD:
