    Default The Strange Magic of: The Lovemongers

    Nancy and Ann Wilson, the sister co-engines of Heart, here perform their excellent cover of Led Zeppelin's The Battle of Evermore. In my opinion, the sisters far exceed their idols--their achievement made somewhat easier by the fact that Evermore, as sung by Plant and Denny, was never one of Zeppelin's greater efforts; Plant's voice, in particular, lacked that keening edge that marks the best folk, folkish or pseudo-folkish music. One need only hear Ian & Sylvia doing Awake, You Drowsy Sleepers to experience how effective and important that element is in such music. This version of Evermore also triggers in my mind an interesting thread that could deal with the subject of covers throughout rock and pop that easily surpass the originals.
