V/A - Respect - #55

V/A - Respect

If you're one for cover versions, than this one's for you. Twenty, more or less well known tracks are presented here. You haven't heard of most of the artists being on record here, exceptions being maybe Sylvie Vartan, Los Salvajes, Cindy & Bert, Joy Flemming and the Supremes (who cover one of their own songs). All titles on offer were originally sung in English. Here you get versions in French, German, Spanish and Italian.

If you can't take "Der Hund von Baskerville (Paranoid)" or "Muy lejos de aqui (We Gotta Get Out Of This Place)", then you'd better put your Kelly Family platters on the turntable. But if the strange, weird and wonderful tickles you, than you can't go wrong with this collection. Most songs are known even to someone who's not a hardcore music freak ("Popi - Fuoco (Fire)", "Chao Chao (Downtown)" or "Der Feuerstuhl (Leader Of The Pack)".
