A cover of Bad Company's classic "Cant' Get Enough"

http://soundcloud.com/george-williams-8/cant-get-enough

Just after ron gave me plaudits for doing original material, here I am demonstrating that Paul Rodgers is yet another singer I can't sound like :)

All instruments tracked from scratch by me and my friends at www.musicianscollaboration.com.

Actually I liked that best after 2:26 (I think that was the time) where you sang higher and with more flow. Your version was good but I thought the vocal was a little cut off/choppy on some of the notes. It kind of lacked flow or ups and downs until you rocked it out later. I would have liked to see how it sounded if you extended some of the notes/words earlier.

But you did your own thing....good job. And We all can't sing like Paul Rogers :D I'm working on one at the moment. Will be awhile though.

Again.....nice job George.

George,

I wouldn't worry about not having the same tone as Paul Rodgers or anyone else for that matter. You have a good sound of your own.

The bad thing about being overly familier with a song being covered is you have an idea of what you think the song should sound like. I am very familier with Can't Get Enough so my opinion may be influenced by that.

If you were doing things your own way then I see no obvious faults. If you were trying to sound like the original then I would agree with Tommy that some of the words were rushed and perhaps cut short. But a few times listening to the original would fix that in no time.

I also sing this song and I do not sing it exactly like the original. I do not believe that a singer singing a cover song has to stay true to the oringinal. Make it your own and believe what you sing and sing it like you believe it.

Good job and keep them coming.

Awesome, of course.

I've got you covered, George. Even great original songwriters do covers, if it so moves them.

I like the stripped down arrangement. Most of your songs are so full, a surfeit of riches. But this was bare-knuckle blues and me likee, a lot.

Good work on the high stuff. There were a few times I think you were channelling some Glenn Hughes (must be something about the water in the Black Country. Do all brummies have that sound? ;) )

Keep doing what you do.

Thanks all.

Ron - it is the water in the black country that does it. I may bottle it for export. :)

Tommy - yes I felt more comfortable letting loose in the later part of the song. I had to warm up well first though as it's towards the top of my range. In the original, PR has very light touch in the early parts of the song, which I couldn't do convincingly. Mind you, he's paid more than me.

Reminds me of the history of Scotch. A simple beer (fermented barley.) is created. To be scotch, it has to be made in Scotland. Anything outside of Scotland is whisky. And it has to be distilled at least twice with a finish of no less than 40% alcohol. And many is the brand that claims that the flavor comes from the water. For example, they Speyside region, biggest distiller of which is Glenfiddich, claim it's the water that runs through the hills. Especially these days, where they buy barley from several sources. And, of course, the character of the peat in the Speyside region.

But I digress (hiccup).

Yes, the water, indeed.
