Lumpy, Its clear that no one is paying attention to the criteria but what the hell!
ok, then, here's some:

nantucket sleighride - mountain
tin soldier - small faces
bananas - man
had to cry today - blind faith
ruins - henry cow
rice pudding - jeff beck
manic depression - jimi hendrix experience
marquee moon - television
pictures of lily - the who
heart full of soul - yardbirds
highway 61 revisited - johnny winter


I like all your picks and for some reason they remind me of "Brand New Day" Al Kooper

All right, utterly crap but still somehow amazing "Live and Let Die" - Wings.
I've always wanted to hear Mike Keneally's version. Apparently he used to be Wall of Voodoo's opening act, playing this on their last tour. The audience reaction was rather like Zappa's reason for signing Alice Cooper. A gig I've always wished I'd seen...
