Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
Kristin Hersh covers "Pennyroyal Tea" and "Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey" as B-sides to her 1999 single "Echo". They're wonderful recordings, both with a different feel and edge. They're closer to sounding more like her former band, Throwing Muses, and a brief foreshadowing to her new band, "50 Foot Wave".

|I love Kristin, but sorry, this goes to The Beatles. The only band that does a great cover of this song is THE FEELIES. now that is a cover|

|I think you get more of a feel for Kristin's talent as a singer and musician when you hear her away from her own songs - this cover gives her a reference point and she blows it away.|

|Although Kristin's versions can't be called improvements on the originals (the originals are, after all, the creations that make the comparison possible) they *are* wonderful. Using Throwing Muses' rythm section (this is essentially Throwing Muses performing these songs) gives the versions a distinctly "Muses" feel. But Kristin's vocals R-O-C-K and make the covers special.|

|Kristin's version sounds wonderful. I love her voice. I hope I can see her live in concert sometimes.|
