1. Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo

    Like some cat from Japan,

    He could lick 'em by smiling, he could leave 'em to hang

    He came on so loaded man, well-hung and snow white tan

    Very nice. Sounds like a old-fashioned country song then you start catching words like "asshole" and "sushi". Lovely when it gets all instrumenty about three and a half minutes in.

    I have that on CD and there's more cover versions on it then I thought, including a 21 minutes cover of Smokey Robinson's "Get Ready" (I'm on my way, but not really in a hurry to get there - or so it seems).
    Should we call this funk-rock?

    "Rare Earth - Motown's funkiest white band"

    "Rare Earth’s music straddles genres and defies categorisation, slipping seamlessly between the two seemingly disparate worlds of classic rock and R&B. This careful balancing act is a rarity even now and was a near impossibility in the colour-segregated 60s when Rare Earth began their journey. Groundbreakers and pioneers, this post-racial band should have been the first of many. Instead, they remained one of a kind."

    I didn't know they were so rare.

    It's not easy to cover the Bee Gees but their version of Warm Ride is even better than the original.

    I hadn't heard either version before but I think you might be right.

    I never heard of the band "Rare Earth" but it's a great cover version, but i do like both versions to be honest. ;)
