Rickie Lee Jones

Both Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones are talented singer/songwriters yet both have in the past  released  albums of cover versions.

First up is Joni:-

Both_Sides_Now

Released in 2000 “Both Sides Now” featured the re-working of two Joni classics, the title track and “A Case Of You” neither bettered the originals and to a degree this was a pattern which continued throughout the album.

Here are my two favourite tracks, first a brave take on Etta Jame’s signature tune “At Last” followed by “Comes Love”.

“At Last” – Joni Mitchell

“Comes Love” –  Joni Mitchell

“It’s Like This” was also released in 2000 and from it I have chosen these two tracks.

“Cycle” best perhaps best known via the Sinatra version is follwed by the Charles Chaplin classic “Smile”

“Cycle” – Rickie Lee Jones
