A trio of remakes with the theme of Summer (we sort of had one of sorts in the UK !!)
First up is a hip-hop version of the Mungo Jerry classic. Originally released in 1970 then again in 1983 and then again in 1989!! A song continually featured on TV adverts. Tim Green is responsible for the remix with the 1983 marketed as the original version (it’s not far off the original with some subtle synth added to it) I’ve included the video for “Gone, Gone, Gone” as everyone and his brother knows the main track even with this dodgy ’89 remix.
“Gone, Gone, Gone” makes use of the tuba accompanying the main man, Ray Dorset in an almost skiffle style track and apparently recorded in 1980.
