COVER VERSIONS OF ORPHEUS SONGS
Several of the songs recorded by Orpheus were later recorded by other artists. This page presents audio clips of these cover versions. We've also included a link to the original song so that you may more readily hear the differences (or similarities, as the case may be). Click on the blue links to play the clip or song.

Please note that, although we'd like very much to be able to provide full, downloadable songs, in many cases copyright restrictions prohibit us from doing so. In these cases we're limited to providing shorter clips.

Songs are presented in alphabetical order, by title.
Only the original release dates have been shown.

For a version to be considered "confirmed," we need to:
(1) obtain a copy; OR
(2) obtain a clip; OR
(3) acquire a graphic of the label or album art listing the track; OR
(4) find at least three independent references on the web.
Otherwise we consider the version to be "unconfirmed."
