A proof that Aretha had it way before the Atlantic years, here in 1964, it's all there already, right? Soul fire! What a rocking voice! Thrillin' and electrifyin' indeed.

Sylvie Vartan did a cover of Gloria as well:

I may have posted this before but I love this version of Flaming Red:

Oh, do you know of Sylvie Vartan, Little Kites? :)

I have the boxset of all her recorded work for RCA but had forgot that cover! She doesn't have the voice of Laura but put enough energy to save the thing. 8)

Hehe. I do, but very vaguely. Like I probably wouldn't be able to pass a test on the history of Sylvie Vartan or anything. But the few things I've heard Sylvie do are pretty good.

Yeah, I like her energy in that! And her outfit seems so sparkly that if she keeps twirling she can double as a disco ball! Hahaha :lol: :wink:

Another interesting cover choice by Sylvie is the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams:

interesting. and she left in some of Annie Lennox's vocals (well there not exactly vocals but..) hmmm

Sylvie did a lot of things indeed! :wink:

I think her 80's decade was pretty erratic (as may show her look on the album covers!), she was trying the hits of the time, but being a fan of her 60's output I still support her. She was already appearing in some US shows in the 60's (Shinding!), covering "Twist and Shout" and "Money", but it was far from being terrific... :lol: She hadn't recorded "La plus belle pour aller danser" yet (in early 1964, though being already a little "yeye" star in France), everything would be musically more interesting (I mean, really interesting) after that.

Speaking of Annie Lennox and covers here is Annie's cover of Paul Simon's Something so Right:

I think Shawn Colvin is great at doing covers. There is a rugged road (Judee Sill):

I guess if Patty can write a love song to her dog (i.e. "Heavenly Day"), then Mark Knopfler can write a musical eulogy to a ship---

FWIW, Clyde was the Scottish river integral to manufacturing many well-built ships, but according to Knopfler they are dismantled in India when they've reached the end of their lives. :cry:

Thats such a moving song and the images in that video enhance the sadness perfectly.
Thanks for posting it Bruce (even though it made me shed a tear).

I was a bit surprised how touching the song was, considering that he's singing about an
"mere" object.
I'm nominating Knopfler for an AFA (anti-fossil award): I imagine he could do quite well simply rehashing "Sultans of Swing" and "Money For Nothing", but instead he comes up with something like this. :D
Might have to check out all of his new CD........

I suppose I did feel some sadness for the demise of a great ship but I think what really got to me was the symbolism of the passing of a great industry.
I guess people who've never experienced the decline of an industry, decline of whole communities due to jobs being exported to those same emergent countries who are so eagerly stripping down those ships for raw materials, won't have felt the same sadness that I did.
When I saw that ship, I was thinking about not just the shipbuilders but the miners, the steelworkers, the potters, all whom have seen their livelyhoods snatched away due to gross mismanagement and a lack of care by subsequent British governments.

    This is simply wonderful... from a simply wonderful show by Jeff Beck and friends at Ronnie Scotts in London.
