Here are three songs from Humble and Gracious, which would make a nice companion to Sweet Relief 2 on the shelf of the Chesnutt completist.

Vic Chesnutt smothered with covers
Vic Chesnutt mailing list members compiled a tribute to the iconic Southern man a few years back, Humble and Gracious. In terms of affinity for cover versions, I'm firmly in the "fuck, yeah" camp - a well-chosen cover song in a band's set is a sure way to earn my affection, and I generally can't get enough. And while Chesnutt's idiosynchratic style might resist covers, this tribute has some fine ones. And the price is right.
