Hmm, I might have to consult Doc's overly long rules about this sorta compilation re-recording. If only because that's such a mammoth song, it would have to beat my (what I consider very strong) nomination. Then again, we'll probably both lose to some early 80's cover by an all male band that only features a woman on this one particular song that appeals to late 40's/early 50's Englishmen.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Discogs distinguishes between albums and compilations and Lady Sings the Blues is listed under albums, so it's legit.

(See, isn't this better than the last poll, where disputes were settled based on who could supply certain nameless parties with the proper amount of sheep porn?) :shifty:

Take pride that you didn't know how to get your hands on that much sheep porn.

Hrmph, can we clarify it's not the original recording? Because IMCTers have strong opinions about the 1938 recording of Strange Fruit vs. the 1954 rerecording.

It's that kind of enthusiasm that won you all those KISS polls. But, no, Flex and I are still standing. The only thing in the rules about different versions applies to the ghost track round at the end. Drunk goes Heston, drunk goes Heston!
