Playlist du jour: Uncover Versions

Here’s a Spotify playlist I put together for my own amusement, but which you might enjoy as well. It contains hit songs of the golden age of pop (i.e., when I was a kid, of course), the ‘sixties and early ‘seventies, in their original recordings and/or in recordings by their composers. Some of these “uncovers” are well-known, others far less so. There are a couple of terrific recordings on this theme that aren’t on Spotify, so I’ve included YouTube videos below. Have fun!
