The Forgottens

“The original is better.” You’ve no doubt heard this from someone, and probably uttered it yourself, at some point in your life. And it often is the case that the original (be it a work of audio or visual art) is “better.” Whatever that means. I, myself, carry this opinion and yet I struggle to explain the reasoning. However, there are those rare, wonderful remakes or homages that not only manage to stand on their own, but to perhaps even communicate with and enhance the original. This week’s show is not meant to prove that the orignal artists are better than those that covered their work (and became more popular for it), but to show that two pieces can exist in conjunction and be appreciated for their unique craft. [But it’s still totally acceptible to have a favorite version. *cough cough Big Mama Thorton’s ‘Hound Dog’*
