Russ Ballard – Winning (1976)

The remarkable Winning LP has got to be the most well-tapped of Russ Ballard‘s much-covered repertoire. The title track was covered by Nona Hendrix, Pezband and Santana, “Since You Been Gone” was tackled by Rainbow, “Just a Dream Away” was rendered equally well by Roger Daltrey, and the (ur) Bay City Rollers tried their balance on “Cuckoo”. And on a more local note, a NuRo mime by the name of Sharkie used to do a routine to “Fakin’ Love” at Portland clubs back in the ’90s.;)
