I guess I am somewhat un-PC now Smile | :)

Duplicates are fair enough, and this is a quite decent duplicate. If I have both the original and the duplicate available, which one would I choose? Would I listen to both?

For some tunes, I love both the original and a cover version, and I listen to both with great pleasure. Even though they are the same lyrics, same melody, the performances are so different that they are completely different musical works. Completely different musical experiences.

My most obvious example is Sidsel Endresen and Bugge Wesseltoft doing Paul Simon's "There must be fifty ways to leave your lover", at Sidsel Endresen: Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover[^]. Even after having grown up with the original (at Paul Simon - 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover[^], I think the Endresen/Wesseltoft is such a different version that is is like a different work altogether. I fully enjoy both in their own right. They are not contestants.

I am "impressed" by Heart's ability to duplicate. But would I choose their version over the original? No. Maybe you would reject Endresen/Wesseltoft for the Paul Simon original - that is fair enough, but the reason why you reject it is not because it is an unfaithful copy of the original, but because you do not like their highly original performance.

I love both performances, both the original and Endresen/Wesseltoft. The latter is definitely not an attempt to make a duplicate of the former.
