I love doing covers. I contributed tracks to a couple of Mellow Records (Italian progressive label) for their ELP an Canterbury tribute sets. Here's my take on King Crimson's Sailor's Tale:

"Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats, slowed down death-ambient version.

I did a sitar raga once based on Rainbow's "Gates of Babylon."  Maybe I should record it.

Wow...I haven't thought of this song in yeeeeears. Nice bit of recall, that!

jblock..."The Sailor's Tale" is really good!

So, I had this idea while listening.  If we each did a cover of something and posted it here...

Would there be an easy way to do such a thing?
Would anyone else do it?
Would we get in trouble with the copyright police?  I mean it wouldn't be anything for release or money making ventures, it would be more like an internet jam board thing.

I'm game.
So, I'm a "Sr Member", huh?  In June it's SENIOR DISCOUNT TIME!!!

"Into the Groove" by ol Madonna is one that continually gets the cover treatment, so why not an ambient version....

I'm going to work on something tonight. hehe.
