I was trying to log onto this whistling tune at #90, but this had some copyright troubles, so YouTube gave me Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton at the Lincoln Center with Corinne Corina in a video from 2011, as an odd replacement. It is a strange mix: Dixieland/Ragtime/Blues/Big Band Swing. And it starts up a bit tepidly. But then at around 3:10 a Clapton solo (Clapton in a suit!) with Marsalis following at around 4:30, sets the venue on fire. I believe that even if you hate Jazz you will have both feet stomping listening to this one. It is a bit of this and that, you should not force yourself to listen to all of it. But I did, twice. And then I ordered the CD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7eeb1MTkUY

Sadly she got Parkinson's disease early, and that was the end of her singing career. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/th...-another-voice

I knew most of that - a sad end to such a talent; Linda Ronstadt made her own hits and also took others' big hits and made bigger hits with them. Unlike so much stuff today she could hit a note and you could hear the words.

Jim Eldon does 'quirky' versions of songs. I was nearly lynched in the Elecs workshop for playing his version of Bat out of Hell...


I'd almost forgotten about this thread.

I remember hearing this quite a few years ago, great to hear it again.

I never knew that Svein. Very sad and no meds to help her....and I moan about arthritis and a few (actually a lot) of bum notes on the guitar!

I watched an Abba documentary about them as they are now, a couple of weeks ago on one of the Sky channels. It struck me that, unless anyone knows different(?), that they only recorded their own compositions - not doing covers of other's songs. This must be vary rare for any musical performers and quite notable. I know there was another collaborator - Stig Anderson, in addition to Benny and Bjorn, on a few songs.

The Stones and the Beatles paid their homage to Chuck Berry, and through him to the old blues-men. I do not think they had to, and I also do not think ABBA could allow themselves to. Their roots, according to both Bjørn and Benny, lay in Nordic folk music, and this is not something that would fit into the repertoire of any modern pop or rock band. They might have tried the songs Carl Michael Bellman, but then they would have been drowned in criticism from a heap of "truly genuine interpreters." (Sweden is, sex aside, a very moral country, their liberalism rigidly set in majority rule.)

ABBA only ever recorded and released one set of cover versions: the so-called 'Folk Medley' that graced the B-side of their 'Summer Night City' single. Some ABBA covers: Super Trouper – Camera Obscura. Angel Eyes – The Czars. Dancing Queen – DALUMI. My Love, My Life – Bike. S O S – Portishead. Knowing Me, Knowing You – The Volebeats. Lay All Your Love On Me – Pale Honey. Chiquitita – First Aid Kit. (Cannot say I have heard of any of those bands,)

Thanks Svein. Others doing covers of Abba songs have got to be on a loser as, even with Mama Mia musical, to me it just doesn't work.
The same with the Beach Boys. The only good cover version of their song "Don't Worry Baby", was done by Lorrie Morgan, but even that had the BBs backing her. On the same album and documentary, Kathy Troccoli did a cover of "I Can Hear Music", which I thought improved the original but again, backed by the BBs.
All can be seen on Youtube.

I flew out to a tanker and spent six months on the Chilean coast in '72-'73. Heard this a lot and bought it when I paid off in BA. (Went to BA when a Chilean refinery had a pause in production)

The Beach Boys "Surfin' USA" was a musical copy with different words of Chuck Berry's "Sweet Li'l Sixteen." Both big hits in their day.

Irish Showband "The Freshmen" were the equal of the Beach Boys in close harmonising.
