Well, the best ...... ??? Hard to tell, but at least I will name the weirdes
t version I'd ever came across : it's by a British band called "John The Pos
tman's Psychedelic Rock'n'Roll Five Skinners" (truly, no kidding)on a 4-trac
k 12" record (Big Bent Records BB4)from 1979.

[141] Pedro Carvalho (pedro2@macbbs.com.br) 2003/12/06 Sat 21:02:38 JST
The wildest version is the one by Os Aranhas, from Rio de 
Janeiro, Brazil, from 1966. 

[140]Lexington Green (lex@chicagoboyz.net) 2003/09/25 Thu 00:17:34 JST
Does it have to be vinyl?  If so, mono version by Them.

If not, best ever was Barbie Army from Chicago playing the Patty 
Smith version live.  I think there may be a cassette of them doing it 
somewhere ...

Helloo.

My favourite version has got to be by The Crushers, too. But I am 
biased, so I'd also vote THEM + VAN MORRISON. :))

Vad - i think it was 1999. :) 

[137] vad (vadim39@hotmail.com) 2003/09/02 Tue 17:15:35 JST
Oh, SF Sorrow, you are wrong, Crushers' version of Gloria WAS on 
official album called "Crushers", have you forgotten? Anyway, the 
album was released only on compact cassette in obscure 1999 (or was 
it 1998?). As for Gloria, oh, how I like the girl. Shadows Of Knight 
live version of 1966 is very cool, have you heard it?

[136]SF Sorrow (ave@netx.ru) 2003/09/02 Tue 16:02:41 JST
My favorite version - by Moscow band The CRUSHERS
they performed it live every gig and even tried to record it live, 
but i don't know about official release of their version - only 
bootlegs

[135] Ssssh (dolphin@catnip.freemail.ne.jp) 2003/08/09 Sat 23:34:58 JST
Gloria, by the 13th Floor Elavators ...

Get tktktktktktktktktktktktk!

[134]John (john@rumblecomics) 2003/07/31 Thu 03:40:18 JST
The Mystreated also used to do a pretty fine version live but I dont 
think they ever recorded it.

[133]John (john@rumblecomics) 2003/07/31 Thu 02:46:39 JST
Them's version is the best seeing as Van the Man originated the tune 
the vocals percussion and agression is just right. I like the Wheels 
version too seeing as Them and The Wheels are both from Ireland they 
are quite similar sounding vocally . I'd love to hear The Boot's 
version if it sounds half as good as "You'll never do it Baby" Golden 
Cups version is cool too.

[132] peggy (staarznback@aol.com) 2003/05/09 Fri 06:10:25 JST
Is there any other version than Jimy's ????
You will always be in my heart crazy man.
xxoo  That Girl In Naples

[131] dave. (davidgrapevine@aol.com) 2003/05/01 Thu 03:39:19 JST
13th Floor Elevators...probably the most out of control version I've 
heard! Considering it was recorded for an after school TV show, it's 
also the most subversive version!
Although, it's kind of hard not to love Them and The Belles (Melvin).

[130]Peter D. (peterd@tiscali.it) 2003/04/26 Sat 03:43:13 JST
The Gloria by Night Shadows is great for the beautiful voice of 
Little Phil.I like the good versions by Yesterday痴 Children and The 
Illusions too.Among the most famous groups  I choose Shadows of  
Knight.Bye-bye

2) Patti Smith (Horses)

Warren.  Hey - Warren or Jimmy - if you are out there and happen to

Of course I definately vote for my Shadows Of Knight when it comes to 
Gloria or all the other songs!  Denise

[115] Randy Ledermann (rjwk278@yahoo.com) 2002/06/29 Sat 04:09:25 JST
I vote Shadows of Knight, a big fan in 60's,saw them perform in 
Milwaukee, just about wore out my Dunwich vinyl as a teenager.There 
are two versions of Oh Yeah,(Oh Yea) they appeared on TV music show 
(similar to bandstand)that originated in Cleveland. Was even member of 
fan club.Do any video performances of Shadows of Knight exist? Randy 
in Wichita.

[114] Stefan Otto (wlutzsotto@aol.com) 2002/05/01 Wed 01:20:45 JST
My favourite Gloria version is the one by the Shadows of Knight. I 
think I posess more than 20 different versions of this song but the 
Shadows of Knight version is the most raw version and a very good 
example of real 60's garage-punk. My favourite psychedelic band is 
H.P. Lovecraft. This band also consists of ex-members of the Shadows 
of Knight.

[110] Daro Georges (buenasreverberaciones@hotmail.com) 2002/02/26 Tue 15:06:22 JST
I think the Shadows of Knight have recorded the best version. The 
site is really cool.

[109] James Apt (jamesapt@hotmail.com) 2002/02/15 Fri 09:03:01 JST
Yep, I gotta go with the Wheels and the post-Van Them's 
"Gloria's Dream" is pretty darn boss, too!!!

[108]Lorenzo Woodrose (lzo@babywoodrose.com) 2002/01/31 Thu 20:05:26 JST
I vote for the Elevators version. Dig that frantic guitar riff that 
shoots it off - that guy is on acid. Crazy!

The Shadows of Knight,Canada`s own King Beezz,Them,Donnie Iris all 
were great,but The Doors version of G L O R I A  gets my vote.

[105] frank intoxicated (galacho@mixmail.com) 2001/12/23 Sun 16:02:48 JST
La mejor Gloria es la de Umberto Tozzi. Tambi駭 la de los Shadows

[104] Linda Larsen (llarsen@meritresources.com) 2001/12/01 Sat 11:45:56 JST
Shadows of Knight. They made me feel alright.  Jimmy's voice, Tom's 
coolness, and Warren's sweetness.  I was a 16 year old girl from 
Rockford, Illinois (90 miles from The Windy City).  The first time I 
saw them, Warren Rogers handed me his guitar when their set was up he 
stood next to me and we talked forever.  The second time I saw them 
he gave me a quitar pic and visited with me during their break.  He 
was so cute and so nice. I had a space between my two front teeth 
then and he had a gold tooth.  Maybe that's why we hit it off.  Crazy 
huh?  Anyway I heard he went out to California.  I'd love to find out 
how he is and what he is doing.

[103] isaac (jakobhalpern@aol.com) 2001/11/02 Fri 04:07:51 JST
I guess for me it will be The Pandoras version of "Melvin"-pure 
savagery! Snarl, overamped powerchords,bonerattling tambourine-an all-
time classic!

[102] Denise Zellinger (neicie@usit.net) 2001/07/16 Mon 15:24:14 JST
WHOA!  YOU HAVE NO WAY TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT - NOTHING!  
I WAS WARRENS GIRLFRIEND FOR 4 YEARS DURING HIGH SCHOOL.  HE IS THE 
ONE THAT STARTED THE BAND AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO THEIR AGENT WAS DO 
YOU?  WELL, I DO.  I WAS THERE FOR ALL THOSE YEARS AND "PEEPERS" IS A 
FIGMENT OF  YOUR IMAGINATION.  HE WAS WITH THE GROUP FOR A SHORT 
PERIOD OF TIME, ONLY.  YOU WANT A BOOK?  I CAN GIVE YOU ONE!

Sorry! ‘GAREGE’=‘GARAGE’

[100] Hajime Machii (hazime-m@mvc.biglobe.ne.jp) 2001/06/13 Wed 18:38:28 JST
I think that the version of THEM is the best.The shout of 
Van Morrison seems to be a savagery.However, to call this version 
GAREGE PUNK, there is an a little too much ripening sensation.
The kids listen“GLORIA" which  THE SHADOWS OF KNIGHT plays and 
should have thought so of it."Wow! We can do this!" 
I am a Japanese person.I think that the version of FINGERS is 
the best in the band in Japan.The version of famous GOLDEN CUPS is 
a performance like the blues.The performance of FINGERS has appeal 
like SHADOWS OF KNIGHT.It is enough to call it GAREGE PUNK.

[99]Tom Bezler (sunny@netnitco.net) 2001/06/05 Tue 13:51:35 JST
the shadows are the best version ever

[98]Tom Bezler (sunny@netnitco.net) 2001/06/05 Tue 13:50:40 JST
the shadows are the best version ever

[97] Costas (dr_costas@yahoo.com) 2001/04/04 Wed 09:49:30 JST
I vote the Scorpions as i once owned an LP from them but i lost it 
now. Gloria was my best song from them and one of the first to learn 
to play on the guitar. I hope I will find a cd of them somewhere - 
with gloria in it!

[96]Tony (tiger5188@mediaone,net) 2001/01/08 Mon 08:28:46 JST
The version by the the Tangerine Zoo from their first album is a
great psychedelic tribute to a girl named GLORIA.

[95] Angelo Mavino (angelomavino@libero.it) 2000/12/24 Sun 23:58:09 JST
Uhmmm... I'm not so sure; my preferences between the bands listed 
above goes undoubtably <(?!? does this word exist in the english 
dictionary?), to the shadows of knight one, but I 5think that the 
blues magoos' one is the best ever waxed onto my ears...
Great job Hitomi... keep on with your fantastic website!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<[93] Hitomi I (The Gants VS SOK) 2000/11/06 Mon 13:06:20 JST
Ilove both versions.
But Jerry M told me that he didn't know The Gants version 
at the time. So I assume SOK didn't copy that version. 

[92]Beth (Powell) Ellis () 2000/11/06 Mon 09:14:50 JST
Of course, The Gants version of "Gloria".  It IS the BEST and besides 
that, they are my friends.  Thanks for having this website.  It 
really is interesting.

[91] Stu Shea (bbwschi@aol.com) 2000/09/13 Wed 07:12:18 JST

Wonderful page.

[90] mlee (yeldah@ayrix.net) 2000/09/02 Sat 13:41:12 JST
I see alot of people vote for Shadows of Knight---well they copied 
the Gants--that great raw garage band from the mississippi delta--sid 
herring has the rough,nasty,bluesest voice that sets their GLoria 
apart from all the others plus their frenetically charged fat-back 
drummer and bass player keep it pushing on that rock edge@@##$$%mlee
LOVE THOSE GANTS


[89] les breastfeeders (breastfeeder66@caramail.com) 2000/07/23 Sun 17:24:16 JST
 my fave version is Les Breastfeeders rendition of Gloria... It's cool
sexy and in french!


[88] john dregg (johndregg@hotmail.com) 2000/06/28 Wed 18:43:41 JST
The wheels version is the best version. lets face it the shadows of 
night just copied theirs.

[87] Sbabbo (andrea@fbv.it) 2000/06/26 Mon 00:54:14 JST
Andrea Bosi is a piece o' shit 'cos' he doesn't like The Great sound 
of the garage bands:he listens only to oasis and beatles. VIVA THE 
BLACKOUTS!
I play in a garage band and I'm only 17:it's hard...ciao a tutti 
i garagers di Bologna(sarete in 2,se va bene)e di tutta italia.  

[86] Sbabbo (andrea@fbv.it) 2000/06/26 Mon 00:43:05 JST
My fave "gloria"version is the Sharks'one.it's wild and wild and 
wild,it comes from Bologna 1966

[85]hillel greenwald (p_smiths@go.com) 2000/05/10 Wed 23:26:10 JST
my favorite glorias (i have 2) are by Patti Smith (from the album 
Horses) and Nick Cave (only live, i think).

[84]Norm (normburns@ntlworld.com) 2000/04/30 Sun 23:28:01 JST
The Wheels & the Doors. Listen to both these versions on my Website: 
Alternative Sixties Jukebox - www.sixtiesjukebox.co.uk
also includes the Belfast Gypsies.

Thanks Hitomi.

[83] Dinos (cmekios@bu.edu) 2000/04/13 Thu 05:04:17 JST
I like the version by Delfini from Yugoslavia as well as the one by
Les Fleaux from Canada.

[82] philip cook (philip@pcook55.fsnet.co.uk) 2000/04/07 Fri 05:17:45 JST
King Beezz. KICKS MY ARSE

[81] Adam Burke (apachethunder3@aol.com) 2000/03/30 Thu 07:25:21 JST
I love Them, and I think their version is the most polished and well 
produced and I love the guitar sound and Van's singing, so they get 
my vote.  The Boots' version is good but the English is hilarious!

[80]Flossie (Chicago) 2000/03/20 Mon 15:15:53 JST
The Shadows of Knight - Rock It over all the others. It is raw, pure 
garage band. It is as Chicago as the winter wind stings and as steamy 
as the hot summer sizzles!

You gotta hear Jimy Sohns sing live. He is a dynamic singer.

[79] Gipe (dgipeix@aol.com) 2000/03/11 Sat 21:37:48 JST

Canada.

[78] nico (bysshe2000@yahoo.com) 2000/03/04 Sat 06:08:19 JST
i think im split between patti's and shaddows of knight
i have allso heard a version by heartbreakers its pretty neat.

[77]christophe onfray (chrison@club-internet.fr) 2000/02/07 Mon 07:30:40 JST
One of the best version was made by Patti Smith

[76] ROBERTO GONZALEZ GOMEZ (UC3479@ALUMNOS.UNICAN.ES) 2000/01/31 Mon 18:17:02 JST
I THINK MARCELO CROSS'S OPINION IS THE REAL ONE. THE COVER MADE BY THE 
SPANISH GROUP 'LOS NO'IS MARVELLOUS.THE LYRICS ARE IN SPANISH 'TU HAS 
CAMBIADO NIムA, HOY DISTINTA ERES TU,Y TU EXTRムA LOCURA ME VUELVE LOCO 
A MI, EL MAL QUE HA MI ME HAS HECHO LO HICISTE A LOS DEMAS, MAS A 
PESAR DE TODO TE SIGO QUERIENDO IGUAL. VUELVE OTRA VEZ A SER...
BLUES MAGOOS VERSION IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT

[74]Marcelo Cross (mcross@sinectis.com.ar) 2000/01/27 Thu 14:43:59 JST
I love "LOS NO" Spanish band version and Los Walkers Argentinian band 
version too.
Anyway Shadows of Knight version is powerfull and Blues magoos is Long
and trippy......

Hi Jerry
Thanks to write the message.
Actually I lost some post becuase of server trouble. ('99 march to
Nov.)So I believe there are lots more cover of GLORIA.

[72] Jery McGeorge (g.mcgeorge@worldnet.att.net) 2000/01/23 Sun 13:42:16 JST
Sheesh, I read through the posts & never realized how many versions 
of "Gloria" there actually were. My favorite? Well,it would have to 
be the one Joe Kelley and I played at the June '99 Cellar Blast 
Reunion, in Arlington Heights, IL. It was the first time Joe & I had 
played together since 1968. (It might not have been good, but it sure 
was fun!)For those of you in the Chicago area, Joe is back playing 
agin with his Blue Shadow band, and playing better than ever. Check 
out a true legend next time he's playing. 

Best to all,

Jerry Mcgeorge
SoK '66

[71] Gregor Izidro (izidros@aol.com.br) 1999/12/19 Sun 02:25:15 JST
Gloria by OS ESPECTROS, a modern brazilian band inspired on 60s 
music, Music Machine and Fuzztones.
The BLUES MAGOOS version is very good and different from the rest. 

[70] Getz (getz@pastel.ocn.ne.jp) 1999/12/18 Sat 11:07:14 JST
'Gloria's Dream' by the Belfast Gypsies.  This is not 
exactly 'Gloria' but almost same melody with differed words.
This band consists of ex-members of Them!!
Also, check out our 60's style garage/instro band, the OKe-Tones from 
Nagoya, Japan!!

[69] Vic Bannon(former DJ with WCFL 104.7 FM 1990-92) (VicBa@gte.net) 1999/12/13 Mon 18:20:08 JST
1. GLORIA-SHADOWS OF KNIGHT(BY FAR THE BEST! BESIDES I'M A FORMER 
CHICAGO AREA DJ AND GOOD FRIENDS WITH JIMY SOHNS)
2. GLORIA-THE OXFORD FIVE(THE LEAD SINGER TRYS TO IMPERSONATE JIMY 
SOHNS OF THE SHADOWS OF KNIGHT!)
3. GLORIA-THEM(VAN IS GREAT BUT I PREFER THE SHADOWS OF KNIGHTS 
VERSION CAUSE IT HAS THAT GARAGE SOUND AND FEEL)


[68]Norman Burns (normburns@burns84.fsnet.co.uk) 1999/11/14 Sun 08:43:13 JST
The Wheels, from the same town as Them (Belfast, Northern Ireland), 
they were probably the first band to cover it as they would have seen 
Them play it many times before it came out on record.
I like the Doors version also.
Check out my garage band called Thee Dreggs (also from Belfast) at 
URL above.

[67] Doug Avery (slvspl@hotmail.com) 1999/11/12 Fri 10:24:53 JST

THEM! WHAT A BAND.DOES ANYONE REMBER THEIR FOLLOWUP BAND,THE BELFAST 
GYPSIES WITH GLORIA,S DREAM ON LOMA RECORDS.THEY ALSO DID SECRET 
POLICE. I USED TO HAVE THESE RECORDS .I MISS THEM,LITTERLY SPEAKING.
AND YES THE MONTELLS WERE A KICK ASS BAND,HAVING LIVED IN MIAMI IN THE 
1960,S. REMEMBER THE KOLLECTION ,WITH SAVAGE LOST!OR HOW ABOUT THE 
CHAINS "THE END".WHO COULD FORGET ANOTHER S.FLA. BAND, THE BLUES 
IMAGE.I DONT KNOW IF THE BANGLES (MALE GROUP) EVER RECORDED,BUT THEY 
REALLY COULD CRANKOUT THE PUNK,GARAGEBAND SOUND, I NOW LIVE IN 
LOUISVILLE,KY AND ONE OF OUR OLD 60,S GARAGE BANDS HAS JUST REISSUED A 
KILLER CD ON GEARFAB LABEL 'SOUL INC. VOL 1'. IT INCLUDES "I BELONG TO 
NOBODY" WHICH WAS A NATIONAL HIT IN 68.

[81]Maddog (mdgell@aol.com) 1999/03/25 Thu 08:14:33 JST
I worked with & for Jimmy for about 4 years as part of his mgt./crew 
team in chicago 73-78 or there abouts. It was a great time  & Jimmy 
was great guy. the band was great & the songs written in that time 
that were never were released were very marketable for that time frame 
.

As the creator and former system operator of "The Biker Board" in

local Harley people when I say that we'll all bend over and kiss a fat 
man's ass if the all time, world-wide, favorite version ain't the 
(1993?) Van Morrison/John Lee Hooker duet! You'll never hear a more 
powerful or moving version and after all, let's not forget who wrote 
it and who influenced him! :)   .................  Ryno  :{>

[76] JEFF LEMLICH (limeston@bellsouth.net) 1999/03/14 Sun 17:30:39 JST
LOS ROCKIN' DEVILS!  of course, that excludes THE MONTELLS (hi Carter) 
since that demo has yet to surface.  If only Mort Downey had chosen 
that instead of "Don't Bring Me Down", who knows?  The Shadows Of 
Knight would probably be only as famous as The Huns.  Not that I have 
anything against SOK, they were great, but their "Gloria" means 
nothing here in South Florida!  And if the great d.j. Roby Yonge was 
still alive, he'd tell you the ONLY version of "Double Shot" that 
mattered was by Alabama's groovy K-OTICS!  Extra credit to local girls 
THE BELLES for "Melvin", which was NOT dedicated to anyone in the 
Vandals!  Bucci's first name was AUGIE, not MELVIN!  The Belles 
competed in a Battle of the Bands in early '67 that was won by the 
Immortals (the "Beau Brummels Medley" band).  Second prize went to the 
blasted Las Olas Brass with Jaco Pastorius!

[75]Liz France (Fort Myers, Florida) 1999/03/11 Thu 06:40:14 JST
Shadows of Knight of course. I heard that Jim Sohns is in Naples, Florida cu
tting a new CD. Can't wait to hear it. It's been a long time coming. March 1
999.

[74]Abigail Leah Plumb (md@kwur.wustl.edu) 1999/03/09 Tue 07:48:55 JST
patti smith, definitely. for *melvin* there is a better version than 
thee headcoatees--i can't remember who did it but it's about 1000 mph 
better and it's on Girls in the Garage vol. one or two. it was 
recorded in the 60's sometime

[73] Carter Ragsdale (ragsdale@copperhill.com) 1999/02/27 Sat 10:36:23 JST
The Montells,South Fla group of which I was a member(singer) did a 
version of Gloria a year to the day before the song was even heard in 
the US.  Our drummer would visit England and return to the US with 
records of groups that weren't heard of in the states.  We would then 
play this material, we rearanged Gloria to suit us, it was kick ass 
rock and roll.  When the song was released by Them people would say 
to us that "We heard your song Gloria, we don't like it as well as we 
do when you play it live."

The Montells, by far. The Shadows of Knight were bubble-gum punks.

The best is definitely from Shadows of Knight!

another fantastic version came from the wallflower complexion' second 
lp "when i'm far from you" . they were sons of us diplomatic staff in 
columbia back in '66 & '67 & did released two incredible lps on daro 
label (both are impossible to find) - little indians lbl in germany 
reissued both in a double lp format and it's killer from start to

[63]Stephen Miko (16B Hollis St., Athens, GA 30605, USA) 1998/11/04 Wed 12:39:23 JST
My favorite Gloria version is by the Boots.  Robb London and The

[56] Mike Kennedy (mok770@localagency.dss.state.va.us) 1998/10/27 Tue 22:51:24 JST
The original, and still the best, version of "Gloria" is by THEM.

[55] William McMeekin (william.mcmeekin@pss.boeing.com) 1998/10/27 Tue 22:15:37 JST
Is there any doubt who did the best job? Van the Man! Them has done 
probably the best version, followed by Van on his "Too late to stop 
now" live album. Good site, anytime you can talk about one of the 
greatest artists of all time! Billm

My favorite Gloria is "Melvin" by Thee Headcoatees


[52] mlee (woodd@magnolia.net) 1998/09/22 Tue 12:14:19 JST
Actually the Gants have the best and original sound that most bands 
try to emulate--there is a story here.  My husband is the drummer for 
the Gants and to hear them is do Gloria makes you believe in the 
stars and moon. Too Gushy --well I loved the song everytime I have 
heard most of the bands in the list--long before I knew any Gants--
they make a believer out of me. Mlee

[51] Sean Gillespie (s.a.gillespie@cranfield.ac.uk) 1998/08/20 Thu 04:43:27 JST
Well...it just gotta be the Them version.  But, I'll make myself 
unpopular, and say The Doors live version is second best; if only 'cos 
it doesn't sound like all the others.

[50] Francesco Ficco (stryk9@diemme.it) 1998/08/07 Fri 20:40:35 JST
I think the best and raw version of Gloria is from The Shadows of 
Knight 1st album.


[49]BARRY GOUBLER (120 1/2 n.solomon,new orleans,la.70119usa) 1998/08/07 Fri 06:08:57 JST
hard to say, but i really like the boot's version, and "melvin" by the 
belles has to get some kind of runner up award.

[48] Henrique Moreira (henriquelrm@openlink.com.br) 1998/07/22 Wed 08:28:50 JST
The 13TH FLOOR ELEVATOR VERSION IS THE BEST ONE
IN MY OPINION THEY ARE THE BEST GARAGEPSYCH BAND

the original can't be surpassed mainly because of the menacing van's 
voice, in the psychedelic genre, tangerine zoo's one is really 
deranged masterpiece .

will be reissued on Sundazed!

[41]Alex Solunac (asolunac@uvvm.uvic.ca) 1998/04/15 Wed 07:04:44 JST
My vote is for Them's version, but The Shadows of Knight comes 
in a very close 2nd.  Edmonton's King Beez version is cool, 
since it's a band with a few members reland, (who might have 
heard Them sing it in Belfast.

My favotite one is by John Lee Hooker & Van Morrison. You can listen 
to it on the ablumn called "TOO LONG IN EXILE" by Van Morrison.
I belive this is the most blusy version of 'Gloria'.

work is "Remember (Walkin' in the sand")! How about you? And my second 
favorite GLORIA is played by "MAGNITUDE 3",the band of Osaka,eastside 
of Japan! Sorry for my broken Engrish,and please sent me back a mail.

[32] Theodore (GeniusTD@aol.com) 1998/01/31 Sat 14:12:37 JST
Come on.  It can't be anything but the original by Them.
SoK comes pretty close but that's only cause they practically did and 
exact replica.  Patty Smith's version is cool, though with quite a bit 
of licence.

[22] Lynn Rescigno (g.langel@worldnet.att.net) 1997/09/19 Fri 11:27:14
The Thirteenth Floor Elevators' version is my favorite.  
Rocky's lunatic singing sends this version straight to the top 
of my list.  Sumner Erickson (Roky's brother) threw water on 
me at a party one time! Lunacy is a family trait, I guess.  
He's a tuba player in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.


[21] Jos Starmans (starman1@hvision.nl) 1997/08/16 Sat 19:42:21
The original version by Them is the best, none of the other versions can bea
t Van Morrison's great voice.
Of the cover versions I like the Squires and the Shadows of Knight best.

Being biased, I'm going to say that Gloria by The Claude Pepper Blues 
Explosion is my favorite ('cause I'm in the group...) An easy second 
place goes to Them, for a brilliantly played song and Van Morrison's 
voice.

The Residents' deconstructed version (heard on side two of "THE THIRD

[3]Frank Uhle (franku@umich.edu) 1997/05/21 Wed 01:20:53
I'm glad you are conducting this survey.  I do a radio show here 
in Ann Arbor, Michigan USA and every show I play different 
versions of "Hey Joe" and "Gloria."  This is a tough question... 
I may have to say the original, by THEM, in its mono 45 mix.  I 
also dig Michigan's garage version by the Oxford Five (on the 
rare "Friday at the Cage-A-Go-Go" lp), but the Gants one is cool, 
and so is the Blues Magoos' (long!) version.  I want to hear some 
of the other ones mentioned in this survey, though, they sound 
great!  


[2] Menachem Turchick (mturchi@azstarnet.com) 1997/05/14 Wed 10:37:11
My vote goes to the Moody Stones, from France! The singer's completely 
incomprehensible! Honorable mention goes to Argentina's Los Walkers, 
for using bongos in their version. It actually works!

[1]Hitomi I (hitomi@kiwi.co.jp) 1997/05/14 Wed 08:12:42
