Thread Name: Shouldn't have been covered (songs)
Subject: RE: BS: Shouldn't have been covered
North Carolina singer, Frank "Profit", did a cover of that Kingston Trio song about a guy that got hung for killing his girlfriend. (I think it was called "Tom Foolery" or something like that.) The Kingston Trio's version was surely the best one. Mr. "Profit" mispronounced half the words. Who ever heard of being stObbed with a knife? And what weird instrumental backup ! Sounded like some kind of a bizarre, primitive homemade banjo or something... Whew ! Why even bother?

Sandy, do you have any opinion on this???
