There have been a lot of cover albums this year and two of those that I have listened to recently have covered the same song, “Bring It On Home” by Led Zeppelin. I know that Led Zeppelin was not the original version of this song either as it was written by Willie Dixon. The first version was released in 1966 and recorded by Sonny Boy Williamson.
I guess then I am trying to compare two cover versions of a song that was a cover song for the band that both covers are covering. I think I just confused myself. Anyway, my quest here is to determine who gave us the best version of the song based on Led Zeppelin’s version. Before we can do that, we must listen to Zeppelin’s version. Take a listen and then we will continue.
