Anybody have any different covers, live versions, alternate takes, etc. of Gil Scott's The Bottle???I have the real version and the Live from 125th St version- sometimes labeled as Guan Guanco. And also that electro version by C.O.D.. I always thought that was kind of interesting but never did anything for me.I've always really dug this song and always surprised it wasn't covered more back in the day.

    There's Brother to Brother version which is nice and Joe Bataan's "La Botellita".
    In my opinion these two are much more dance-friendly than the og.

  • Ahhh I forgot the Brother to Brother version. I have that somewhere and must dig it up...
