You can't just D'oh! You have to gif it!
To stay on topic, one of my favorite bands, The Jayhawks, recorded Stumbling through the Dark twice--on the same album. One full band, the second acoustic. A great song either way (IMO).
Eagles' "Hotel California".
Clapton's "After Midnight" one fast, one slow.
I have a BTO album called Trial By Fire that is pretty good.
The Pixies did Velvety [Instrumental Version] and Frank Black and the Catholics did Velvety, Frank Black has released a few versions of some songs, but most were demos.
The Pixies did Wave of Mutilation and Wave of Mutilation [UK Surf], like the two versions of the Beatles Revolution. They may have been recorded about the same time.
Chicago...25 or 6 to 4, I think they did a few.
I believe there are a few Rolling Stones songs, sometimes the songs got a different name.
Both Sides Now is a fantastic album.
I forgot about this one, but Howard Jones' original version of No One is to Blame didn't chart. He recorded it again a year later with Phil Collins and it became a big hit for him.
Single version w/Phil
Clash - Capital Radio
They did a cute version of Career Opportunities. There may be others.
Mr. N. Young of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada did two variations of the same song.
Bowie - John, I'm Only Dancing.
The Pixies - Vamos
It was on Come on Pilgrim, then the "You F***ing Die" version on Surfer Rosa, but if you bought the CD you got both.
I heard about a few Dylan songs?
First there was the song they ripped off, then a fast version, then a slow version:
I'd never heard of the first song, certainly similar with the fast attack.
@Sabato was first on Revolution, one accoustic + one electric. The Rolling Stones did the same with Honky Tonk Women and Country Honk.
And of course, it all started with the pionneers.
Chuck Berry re-recorded a full album of his Chess hits after having signed for Mercury, it's named Golden Hits.
I think Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis did the same. Possibly several times.
Aye,those re-recordings from the likes of Little Richard ,Chuck,Jerry Lee and Roy Orbison,are just not the same,i like the original versions because they capture that moment in time.
The Shadows done the same thing,nice enough ,but not a patch on the originals.
Think I'd like Chuck Berry Golden Hits.
I had Chuck Berry's The Great Twenty-Eight on CD. Good one.
I liked that one, but I was disappointed that "You Never Can Tell" wasn't one of the 28.
I remember when Bob Marley Legend came out, the tape I bought had a super up-tempo version of Buffalo Soldier. All subsequent issues have the original. Of course, Bob had passed by then.
There are several stories in rock and roll history of great songs taking a couple of releases/re-recordings in order to take hold. I just can't quite remember any specific ones right now.
Oh my gosh, cheers to that! From his self titled solo, to Wildwood, to Livewood, to Stanley Road, to Heavy Soul -- love it, love it, love it. Interestingly, as a teenager in the eighties, I was not into Style Council. I guess it wasn't edgy enough for me.
Spooky by The Classics IV (1967), and Spooky by The Atlanta Rhythm Section (1979). Some of the same band members were on both of those two recordings.
Kiss - Strutter/Strutter ‘78
The Beatles did German versions of some songs.
