 I think my whole point of what is being lost in the music has been missed. 
It is not about artists doing covers from other genres. BTW, A Collins covered
Mustang Sally, and Ray Charles covered quite a few from other types of music.
My point was more that today a lot of the new music I am hearing is geared toward
the fact that it is becoming more homogenized, to reach the largest number of
sellable audience. I don't necessarily see this as a good thing for the arts in general.

Buddy Guy used to play "Fever".  Probably the best version of that song I've

ever heard.

Ike and Tina recorded a slowed down version of "Proud Mary" prior to the hit

recording as well as

other covers.  They also recorded Alice Cooper cover "Only Women Bleed." Of

course lets not forget

Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude" and covers by the Beatles and Stones by Otis

Redding.  So let us not

forget this background of looking for crossover material.
