From 1966, please enjoy eclectic singer/songwriter Tom Rush and his sprightly cover of Buddy Holly's wonderful "Love's Made a Fool of You."
Rush has always been my favorite of the first generation of 60s folkies, in part because, as you can hear, he was the least doctrinaire. In any case, after seeing Al Kooper live last week, I remembered that he had produced the above album for Rush, and that it was one of the first examples of one of the aforementioned folkies treating the Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley songs of their youth as, essentially, folk music. I'd had the album on LP back in the day, but hadn't thought about it (or listened to it) in years. So I snagged a CD reissue and was pleasantly surprised to find that it holds up pretty well. The thing isn't exactly what you'd call a classic, but as period pieces go it's highly listenable (and the version of Bo's "Who Do You Love" kicks a surprising amount of ass).
Incidentally, on the Holly song, that's producer Kooper on celesta, an instrument that, of course, figures prominently on the actual Buddy's classic hit "Everyday."
