The Dickies – “Nights In White Satin)
The fundamental mistake made in many cover versions is a slavish adherence to the original vision/version of the tune. The Dickies wisely take this classic rock evergreen out behind the shed and give it a good lashing. Multi-tracked power chords and stinging lead lines pay homage to the melody and pathos of the original with none of the sugary aftertaste.
