Cover: New Order Versus Keith Hudson

A few years ago I picked up New Order's first album on vinyl. The eBay seller also included the first New Order Peele Sessions 12" as a bonus. The performance on the Peele Sessions is great. One of the tracks is a cover of Keith Hudson's Turn the Heater On. At that point I had never heard Hudson's version, but I instantly fell for the New Order version. Although it's much faster and lacks the groove of Hudson's, it's more modern approach via electric drums and keyboards is very fitting.

I've been trying to figure out which version is better. I know some people say that it's impossible to perform a cover better than the original artist. Those people have obviously never listened to Bob Dylan before.

Listen to both of these. Which do you like better? Why?

While I really like some of the instrumentation on the New Order version, the vocals in the Hudson version are much nicer and sincere. So, I lean that way.

Howdo. The Keith Hudson dub version is also blinding. The New Order version is a combination of both versions & the background melodies on their version are from the dub. I adore all 3. I'm sure I read somewhere it was Ian Curtis's favourite song.

Greeting from Manchester England.
I have to go with New Order, the keith hudson track is ok;I love loads of reggae from that period.
The instrumentation on the New Order is brilliant and barney's singing suits the mood of the lyrics track excellently.
