    Default Blues Cover Album

    I was listening to Bitten By The Wolf for the thousandth time today and was thinking wouldn't it be cool if CF did an album of nothing but blues covers?

    If you had a choice, what blues song(s) would you like them to cover?

    While I would rather hear originals from CF, I have always wanted to hear Sam's take on classics (and other) songs.

    Heard It thru the Grapevine, Give me one Reason, and Let's stay Together, to name a few.

    I have really no desire for it. They have a very small window to record originals, I personally think a covers album for them is a waste of time.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    While I'm sure the guys could pull it off, it's not something I really a style I enjoy hearing those guys play. New album of originals for me, thank you.

    they talked about this back in the 12 Days of the Foot, the statement was that they might be up for doing an EP of blues songs just for the fans.

    I dunno, if they do it for the fans and it's just a quickie I don't have a problem with it. If it turns into a long drawn out process that takes them forever to do then forget it, if they can pump out an album of originals in say 5 months start to finsih they should be able to do something like this in a few weeks (or so you would think).

    I mean VH did Apolitical blues in 1 take, mic in the middle of the room, and the band just played live straight threw, prolly took no more than a couple of hours start to finish (or this is the story that everyone has always told about the song-ed did overdub the piano later) then it would be cool to see CF do that kind of thing.

    Too bad JL Hooker's not with us anymore. Would've loved to hear them do something together like he did with Big Head Todd and the Monsters.

    it would be neat it CF did one of those Itunes sessions (I think they go to an apple store and play a mini show and then the show is sold on Itunes) and actually did blues covers with that. That way you're killing 2 birds with 1 stone. You get something fresh and cheap on Itunes and you get to give the fans something "new" along the way.

    That sounds like something Joe would cook up. Awesome idea.

    I am going to get slammed but I honestly don't think playing the blues is a strong point of Joe and Sam. Sam IMO doesn't not have a good voice for the blues. Nothing about him and Eddie or VH. I just don't like blues singers who sing in his range. Like baritone singers or ones with a bit more bass.

    Joe is great and can play the blues but like all technical guitarists, something will be missing. I used to think every technical guitarist could master the blues but I am wrong. It would be cool but I would rather Joe do what Joe does. Be Joe instead of mimicking SRV.

    Do another album of original material. CF or VH should not think about covers at this point of their career.

    "Bitten By The Wolf" is a great song, although not a blues song per se.

    I do like the direction of Bitten by the Wolf. Probably their best song to date. Very ZEPish sounding....timeless.

    I'm certainly no music scholor, but I believe it's a form of Delta Blues.

    I love the experimental (less 80's hard rocky) stuff they do.
