Of the many records getting an exclusive Record Store Day release, there were two that I had a special interest in: the Foo Fighters covers LP "Medium Rare" and the John Doe/Jill Sobule collaboration "A Day At The Pass," which features duet takes on each other's material, as well as a few covers. I finally got my hands on both for a few dollars more than I would have liked to spend.
I like'em both, but each has one really strong take that stands out for me. The Foos deliver a cover of The Zombies' "This Will Be Our Year" that quite frankly, surprised the hell out of me. John and Jill's cover of The Association's "Never My Love," is a little more of what you'd expect, but still, no less wonderful.
Give a listen, then sell your souls for some copies on eBay.
