I can't recall which CD it's on, but The Smithereens do a really good cover of "The Seeker".[/quote]
I think their cover of "The Seeker" is on the "Attack of the Smithereens" CD.
Also, a few years ago they did their own version of "Tommy," which is really fun to listen to. I can understand the point of view of some who prefer the original versions, but I think their covers of the Beatles and the Who are done as much in the spirit of fun as anything. Great to hear a really good band (that plays a lot of Rickenbackers!) have a good time recording versions of the music they love. And if you haven't heard their most recent album of originals, "2011," which was produced by Don Dixon, you're really in for a treat!
