Suzanne....

Written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin, recorded by Aretha Franklin and then 'covered' by King herself.

Not strictly a cover version maybe, but this young girl covers the drum parts of many songs. I recommend checking her other stuff out. She's only 14 years old in her earlier videos.

 
The glorious Liz Fraser, maybe better known for the Cocteau Twins

Some great stuff you've posted there!

Edmunds is sometimes sneeringly referred to as just a pub singer, but he is hugely talented. You only have to look at the people queuing up to play with him to see that.
True, oh so true!
Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eric Clapton, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Stray Cats, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Jeff Lynne, etc....
