JJ Cale - After Midnight.

In 1966, while living in Los Angeles he cut a demo single with Liberty Records of his composition "After Midnight". He distributed copies of this single to his Tulsa musician friends living in Los Angeles, many of whom were successfully finding work as session musicians. He found little success as a recording artist and not being able to make enough money as a studio engineer, he sold his guitar and returned to Tulsa in late 1967, where he joined a band with Tulsa musician Don White.

In 1970, it came to his attention that Eric Clapton had recorded a cover of "After Midnight" on his debut album.
As a result of this, it was suggested to Cale that he should take advantage of this publicity and cut a record of his own. His first album, Naturally, was released in December 1971 ...
I heard an interview where he said he first became aware of Clapton's cover while listening to his car radio.

Widely regarded as the best all time cover version of any song:


Oh, if only she'd have played her cards right...............................................

Not sure which is the best version of this song TBH - The Dave Clark 5 had a big hit with it in 1968,but it was written by Raymond Froggat,so here is Raymond Froggat doing a live version in 2012 (age 71 ?)

Fine cover. But like the thread title says, second best version.

Can't find a live video, but Hawkwind's version of Gimme Shelter must be the second best.

Belinda Carlisle - I feel free. Much easier on the eye than Ginger Baker.
