The Queen's Carnival. One of the classic cover tracks is The Kinks "You Really Got Me" featuring the expressive sultry vocals of Lucy Woodward.
The track starts off with their jazz influences making it sound like it was their own song and then a razor's edge guitar enters giving it that definitive rock influence. With that element it still sounds like their own creation giving you no indication of the original with the exception of the lyrics.
For this listener that is what makes a good cover tune great! I appreciate jazz rock fusion as well so that helps if you have an ear bent for that genre. So turn it on and give it a listen.
