Covers: Mission Bell

“Mission Bell” was a hit for Donnie Brooks in 1960. The cover I know best is by Fleetwood Mac on their excellent 1970 album Kiln House. It was an odd choice for them – most of the rest of the album is 1950s style, country, blues or rock. It’s the weakest song on the album. I would call the original version pop. Check out the bizarre cover by Tiny Tim.
