Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren - Sunday Mornings with Reina del Cid, Volume 11 (2020-2021)

I've posted a lot of albums of Reina del Cid and Toni Lindgren playing acoustic versions of cover songs on Sunday Mornings. They started way back in 2013, and have been putting out a new cover version on what I'd guess is about every other Sunday for all the time. (Sometimes they do original songs, which I'm not including here, and other times they put out song just for paid subscribers.) 

Unfortunately, I'm starting to run out of material, because I'm getting close to current day. As I write this in November 2021, I have enough for a Volume 12. After that, the posting of these albums will have to go a lot slower to give them time to keep recording new songs.

This album is typical of their Sunday cover songs. It's an enjoyable mixture of classic favorites with more obscure but still very good songs. And they continue to show a lot of range. How many "folksy" artists like them would do a cover of Queen's "Killer Queen," or "All That She Wants" by Ace of Base? But it all fits.

Here's a list of the original artist for each song:

01 Fish and Whistle - John Prine
02 All That She Wants - Ace of Base
03 Jingle Bells - James Lord Pierpont
04 Queen Bee - Taj Mahal
05 Deal - Grateful Dead
06 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
07 Whiskey River - Willie Nelson
08 Old Home Place - Dillards
09 Ship of Fools - Grateful Dead
10 Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel
11 Octopus's Garden - Beatles
12 Walls - Tom Petty
13 If I Could Build My Whole World Around You - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
14 Killer Queen - Queen

Here's the usual song list:

01 Fish and Whistle (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
02 All That She Wants (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
03 Jingle Bells (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
04 Queen Bee (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
05 Deal (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
06 What a Wonderful World (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
07 Whiskey River (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
08 Old Home Place (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
09 Ship of Fools (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
10 Solsbury Hill (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
11 Octopus's Garden (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren with Travis Worth)
12 Walls (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren with Travis Worth)
13 If I Could Build My Whole World Around You (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)
14 Killer Queen (Reina del Cid & Toni Lindgren)

I usually make the covers for these albums from screenshots taken from their YouTube videos. That's the case again here. This screenshot comes from their video of "Solsbury Hill," which was taken near a cliff looking somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.
