So Part 1 of a vinyl package that Mike has shared with us that I’ve got to admit I’m a little envious of. I always have a fondness for a good cover version, a reinterpretation of a well known tune and have even put nights on of just covers.
From 1992 and this see’s the then current (and mostly) Indie bands have a crack at some famous songs. Commissioned by music mag, N.M.E. it came in a sumptuous package in three volumes covering 40 songs. Here is part 1, all are listenable and all seem to be having a great time putting their own sound to the original. I’ve got waiting Part 2 and 3 so stay tuned.
Be back Sunday Night!
