Is coming nearer on the path.

Nina Gordon Does N.W.A.

Hat tip to Tony Pierce for spotting this:

Nina Gordon, of Veruca Salt fame, does "Straight Outta Compton" unplugged (more or less). More covers, including Phil Collins and Cinderella, here.

Kind of annoys me that I didn't keep up with her. Veruca Salt's debut, American Thighs, was one of the more underrated albums of the 90's. Not that I usually use this terminology, or that such a quality is really what I set out to find in new music, but VS's first two albums just straight-up rocked.
