Cover Wars: Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)

The timeline for Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn) is a bit more complicated than most Cover Wars because while the song was written by Bob Dylan, Manfred Mann officially released their cover of it two years before it would appear on Bob Dylan’s album Self Portrait. The song was written and first played with The Band during the recording sessions for The Basement Tapes, but the version penned during that session would not be released until 1985 as part of the Biograph release. Further complicating things, when Manfred Mann recorded the song they simply titled it Mighty Quinn. The song gets named a LOT of different ways.

The Contestants:

The Britpop band Cornershop released this cover on their 2009 release Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast. The entire album is recommended listening, and if you like what you hear, be sure to give their 1997 album When I Was Born For The 7th Time a listen as well.

The B List: Top Six Of The First Six

With the first six months of 2010 beginning to feel like a distant memory, I figured it was time to continue a tradition by taking a look at my favorite six albums of the first half of the year with the Top 6 Of The First 6.

6) CornershopJudy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast

Cornershop sure seem to like taking their time in releasing studio albums, managing only two in the 13 years since their critically acclaimed When I Was Born For The 7th Time came out in 1997. At points you almost forget the band still exists. For the group’s first full-length since 2002, the Brit-pop act returned with another album full of their unique blend of British Invasion rock, mixed with sitars, eclectic samples and sound collages. The LP includes a fantastic cover of Manfred Mann’s version of The Mighty Quinn and the soaring 16-plus minute psychedelic-gospel-funk-soul jam Turned On Truth.
