Editor's note: I'm not overly impressed with either Ted Weems or his counterpart on the flipside Bobby Freedman. A little too jazzy, swingy, orchestral and too happy for my liking. I want something moody, dour or severe with tentacles that reach into you and shake the rib package around a bit. Still a brilliant cover!
