Brian Eno Cover Version Surprise

On another site which I regularly frequent (Word Magazine) a discussion took place regarding Bands/Artists that had never recorded a cover version.

With a great deal of confidence I posted the suggestion Brian Eno, who I believed had never done such a thing.
My suggestion was supported by The Covers Project which informed that: "No, Mr Eno has never recorded someone elses stuff"

But - I was wrong.  Brian Eno has recorded a cover version.  It was 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' and was released as a single in 1975

Having only recently become "Eno Aware" (I bought the first 4 albums in July last year), I don't think this would sound out of place on 'Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy'
