A Look Under The Covers

I mentioned my affection for a nice dub, as well as a well crafted sample. Now on to a nice cover. I have come to appreciate covers in my old age in part due to the fact that the songs being covered are songs from my youth. There were some real nice covers this past year. Now I'm not saying these are better than the orignals, but they're damn close...

Famous Ray's

Or is it Ray's Famous? No matter, it's all good. The Famous Ray's Pizza of New York is a destination stop in Verona, NJ. What do I mean by "destination stop"? It means that if you are anywhere within a 10 miles radius of the joint you must make the's that good. Now as any pizza aficionado knows, pizza is all good. Some like it thin, some like it thick. Ray's would be filed under thick.
