Documenting Covers in a .txt file
« on: July 15, 2010, 12:45:45 PM »
I guess the bands that I tape always seem to do a couple covers in their shows and I have always documented them in the .txt file.  I usually state in the notes portion who orignally performed/wrote the song.   I taped a show recently (Carolina Chocolate Drops) where the original singers of the song weren't the ones who made the song popular.  The song is Jackson made famous by Johnny Cash and June Carter.  But according to wiki the song had also been sung by at least 2 other groups prior to Johnny Cash.  I was just kinda curious how some other of you folks document covers in your .txt file. 

Thanks,
Greg

I don't note it either; actually, about half the time I don't even transcribe the setlist...

Of the two though, I'd note the original artist.

I don't treat covers any differently than originals in my .txt files.

How do the tapers that denote cover songs deal with a Grateful Dead song performed by Furthur or RatDog or PAF...  ???

If it's one of the first times the cover has been played by a given band, I might mention it but usually only in the context of the fact that it's an early performance of song X (originally by band Y). Otherwise, no documentation.

wouldn't consider that a cover. do you consider ever beatles song paul mccartney plays at a show to be written by someone else?
Please contact me if you've ever taped the Smashing Pumpkins or a related group!

A slightly off topic answer:  If its a new band you are taping, naming the covers could be a good idea.  I've been taping my cousin's band and have gotten some questions about what songs they were playing (ie "where have I heard that before") but it turned out they were asking about an original.  So sometimes it helps to distinguish.

Clearly its not necessary to document covers that Dark Star or something play, but lets not get into semantics here (original band member, probably can get away with playing their songs), BUT I believe there's a copyright thread here already.

The whole idea sort of assumes that someone knows every song ever written...

If I see - say a ska band, like hell Im going to know covers from originals...

Well, the same can be said about identifying the setlist to begin with.  :P

Depends on the artist.

Usually for more mainstream artists that I tape if they are doing a cover i'll note it.   As an example years ago at a show an artist dropped in a verse and chorus to another artists song. No one seemed to know what the cover was.    I noted it in the text file.   So many folks who commented on the download said 'I knew that cover song but couldn't say exactly what it was'.   Or sometimes if I feel it is important to note I will.   In the end I think it depends on the artist and what you feel like the audience cares about or not.
