Robyn Hitchcock - Acoustic Covers, Volume 7: 2005-2006

Robyn Hitchcock has played a zillion cover songs in acoustic format in concert. This is the sixth album in a series of those songs, and there are many more to come. This one deals with the years 2005 and 2006.

All the songs on this album are unofficially released. The song quality ranges from very good to excellent, with most of the songs coming from soundboard recordings.

Note that the Dylan studio version of Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands is 11 minutes long, nearly all of it with vocals. Hitchcock only does the first six minutes' worth of that, probably for fear of boring the audience if they didn't know the song.

Here are the original artists for each song:

01 Who Do You Love - Bo Diddley
02 You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover - Bo Diddley
03 Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands - Bob Dylan
04 Tired of Waiting for You - Kinks
05 The Gates of Eden - Bob Dylan
06 Up on Cripple Creek- Band
07 Tears of Rage - Bob Dylan
08 Mind Games - John Lennon
09 She Belongs to Me - Bob Dylan
10 Well, Well, Well - John Lennon
11 All Shook Up - Elvis Presley
12 Back in the U.S.S.R - Beatles
13 Day Tripper - Beatles
14 Hungry for Love - Johnny Kidd and the Pirates
15 The Ballad of John and Yoko - Beatles
16 Wang Dang Doodle - Willie Dixon / Koko Taylor
