Billy MacKenzie ‎– Wild Is The Wind E.P. (CD Rip)

From March 2001 and the limited edition release of a this superb cover of Bowie’s track from 1976, another cover of a cover which Billy nails !

Accompanied by just piano (from Steve Aungle) and acoustic guitar, this showcases his voice perfectly as it does on the Sparks cover with a violin replacing the guitar. Recorded in Dundee

Randy Newman’s “Baltimore” gets the proper version this week (after last weeks Bootleg) Seven minutes of Trip Hop produced by Dennis Wheatley and Tony Newland (both from the band Atlas) Some lush strings.

The final track was written by Wheatley and Paul Haig. Chilled vibes again with MC Buzz B adding some extra vocals.

One thought on “Billy MacKenzie ‎– Wild Is The Wind E.P. (CD Rip)”

  1. So glad the Paul Haig released this supa-fine EP. I bought mine directly from Haig’s website and imagined [correctly] that it would end up a three figure item if I dawdled. Was there ever another person [let alone a man] who could nail a Nina Simone performance like “Wild Is the Wind” or “Baltimore” in the manner that MacKenzie did here?
