A great cover only makes a song stronger: Jimi Hendrix's explosive version of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower." The Beatles rocking out with "Twist and Shout." Aretha Franklin demanding "Respect." Exploring 19 of the finest cover tunes ever, this heavily illustrated survey tells the often surprising stories behind the recording and subsequent fame of Elvis's "Hound Dog," the Who's "Summertime Blues," Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help from My Friends," the Talking Heads' "Take Me to the River," and Johnny Cash's wrenching rendition of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt."
