Why Fidelity 26 - The Inevitable Covers Show

Why Fidelity 26 - The Inevitable Covers Show

Download Show 26 | Why Fidelity Archives

Most Why Fidelity shows spin at least one or two covers but this week it's all about the re-imagining of classic pop tunes. A pretty mellow collection with only a couple of tunes worth more for their novelty value then listenabilty - Mr. French's Dylan cover springs immediatly to mind...

Show 26 Playlist:
  1. Light my Fire - Free Design
  2. Angel Eyes - The Czars
  3. The Look Of Love - Novi Singers
  4. A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Big Jim Sullivan
  5. Sunday Will Never Be the Same - Gary Mcfarland
  6. Buenos dias dulce Estrella - Los Sonidos De Hoy
  7. Seasons In The Sun (Le Moribond) - John and Anne Ryder
  8. They Long to Be Close to You - Richard Chamberlain
  9. All I Really Want To Do - Sebastian Cabot
  10. The Letter - Fear Itself
  11. Where Have All The Flowers Gone? (Dove sono finiti fiori?) - Nives
  12. Wild Thing - Goodies

As is the case with every installment of Why Fidelity, most of these tracks come from my own collection but a few have arrived via the amazing generosity of the small, but powerful, army of sharity bloggers who selflessly throw their hard earned collections of rare vinyl open to the rest of us. This week's show features tracks shared by the likes of hansZUNblog and mexicovers and possibly a third - I tend to lose track of what comes from where. Other astounding sharity sites include Planet Xtabay, Endless Mike, Chocoreve, Groovy Fab Workshop and, well instead of my listing them all just check out Planet Xtabay's Blogroll - every site you might possibly want to visit can be found there.
