With that said, I can say one of my favourite covers the Manics have ever done possibly benefits from my not ever having heard the/an original recording (if it even exists?) (!) - The Horrorsí Vision Blurred. (Did the Ďoriginalí ever get released?) The nearest Iíve heard to an original version is a short, heavily distorted clip of a live performance on YouTube...

The Endless Plain of Fortune cover needs mentioning too, I love that.
Totally agree with this. I have searched for the original with no luck but the boys version, well it could have been on JFPL and I would have never known it wasnít theirs.

I think the same. Vision Blurred is the closing song of my "JFPL companion album" (the other two songs being the japanese bonus tracks) and it's one of the most powerful songs ever recorded. I feel shivers every time.
