A truly inspired cover can sometimes trump an artist’s original vision for a song. In this ongoing series, The Cover Wars, I’m interested in which version (or versions) you prefer. The song: Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” off their 1970 album Loaded. The cover: The Cowboy Junkies version off The Trinity Session album.
