Musical Interlude: Crimson & Clover (2017)

Tommy James & The Shondells reached #1 in February 1969 with "Crimson & Clover". 12 years later, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts peaked at #7 with their cover.

36 years later, Jett sits in with James for a duet version in concert.

"Crimson" was one of three James hits to be covered in the 80's, the others being "Mony Mony" (Billy Idol) and "I Think We're Alone Now" (Tiffany), the latter pair achieving chart success in 1987, with Idol's version getting some airplay during the Minnesota Twins' 1st World Series title run.
