Under The Covers :: I’d Rather Go Blind

man manetta-james-soul.jpg

More often than not, whenever I spin Man Man’s cover of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind,” someone, whether in the studio, or a listener via email, invariably inquires one of two things: a) the source of the cover, or b) who the band is covering Etta James. I think this phenomenon, like all great covers, speaks to both the quality of the song itself, as well as Man Man’s barroom interpretation.
