A very good song

Half-hearted rendition of a great song (1/5.01/5.01/5.01/5.01/5.0)

I was excited to hear there was a Fleetwood Mac version of the song, thinking they would have brought some new accent to it - I don't know why it ever slipped under my radar at the time actually. But what a disappointment. No energy, no emotion... a washed-out attempt at a beautifully written song of absolute heartache. To my mind, there is nobody who does it better than Billy Field himself (apart from me in the shower).

The Worst Cover Ever Recorded. (1/5.01/5.01/5.01/5.01/5.0)

I only recently discovered this version of Billy Fields beautiful song and must say I'd wish I'd never found it. It has to be the most poorly done, half hearted cover ever recorded. It's the equivilent to having teeth pulled with pliers, it'd be like Ozzy Osbourne trying to sing Brian Wilson's God Only Knows, you know it's going to end bad and do no justice to the original recording.
Hang your heads in shame to the record executives that recorded this garbage.

A Job well Done (5/5.05/5.05/5.05/5.05/5.0)

Well i'm from a Country, in Central America, and during the time this song was released, we didn't even know, who was the performer, no matter what, it's easy to see, what a good quality job was done with it, we didn't even understand the lyrics, because of not speaking the language, so later trying to understand the meaning of the song, we learned to speak english, and nowdays it brings back memories when you hear this song which was originally recorded by a different artist (Billy Field), but played in an oustanding way, you would only compared with " With A little help from my Friends" played by Joe Cocker, a song you definitly rather listen in the cover version than in the original. Congratulations, for a Job well Done.
