Description: Unknown versions of great songs, sometimes better than the original. These are cover versions you will never hear on your local radio dial. Most songs are familiar but these versions are truly hidden pearls. Garage sales, dark, filthy used record stores and Salvation Army outposts in questionable neighborhoods are the sources for The Mother Of Oldschool's "Oldschool Covers."

The show starts with Lyn Collins singing Bill Withers. Other highlights are Black Heat singing Lennon & McCartney and Roger Troutman, David Ruffin and the Undisputed Truth covering Norman Whitfield. Rance Allen finishes the set with the Gamble & Huff tune "There's Gonna Be A Showdown".
