I’ve long maintained that one of the great covers of any era was this 1982 take on Pink Floyd’s “Lucifer Sam” by Sacramento’s TRUE WEST. It was on their debut 45, and later on their first EP as well.

Big, swelling aggressive non-psych take on what was already a brilliant song. I saw these guys a few years later and they were already pretty watered-down jangle – opening for R.E.M. and The Three O’Clock, no less.
