Pretty much all the songs on both discs.



I only listen to the second disc because it's a re-release of Garage Days Re-Re-Visited. I didn't much care for the first disc.

Hmmm....


I would have to say Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands cover of Jerry Jeff Walker's 'Mr. Bojangles' is probably my all-time favorite cover.

Alison Krauss singing Bad Company's 'Oh Atlanta' is up there too.

I love this piece, but I am ignorant of who did the original?
