    Might have to do a 2nd list as there's so many, Superstition by Beck, Bogert & Appice just missed out.

    The Righteous Bros...Unchained Melody.... superior to the original

    Now add....

    Elvis...Are You Lonesome Tonight
    Bob Wills...Sitting on Top of the World
    The Allman Bros...Statesboro Blues
    Cream....Outside Woman Blues

    The great Robert Johnson has been covered by a truck load of artists but...never improved upon.

    Hank Williams...Lovesick Blues
    Bob Dylan....Fixin'To Die
    The Animals...House of the Rising Sun
    Lead Belly...Midnight Special
    BB King...3 0' Clock Blues
    SRV....Texas Flood
