Marilyn Smith "covers Mother"

Recommended Posts

I was listening to my radio show and noticed this. Listen to the last few seconds of this song. They actually sing "you shouldn't have pulled the covers over this motherf***er". That probably didn't help airplay, like it might have slipped by a few times until someone noticed it.

Yes  - fantastic stuff - off key but still great. I remember when the first copy of this to turned up in modern times (early 90s) - found in Arizona or Vegas I think and Soul Sam was hammering it  :lol: .

 

Loads of copies around now....

SoJamm Records ......... the 70's incarnation of Cleveland's Way Out Records.

The company cut around 3 tracks for every one they released .... AND .....

....... a big reissue label is now well advanced in its project to license / release (on CD / vinyl) all the best of their product .....

.... so we may well get a 'longer version' of "Covers Mother" plus other tracks made by Marilyn (& the many other artists who cut stuff for them).

well seems like a bad idea for radio play...

flip is a really nice ballad

Especially 40 yrs ago Bob ,but would probably be tame compared to some of the stuff being played today lol

Numero has bought the rights to the Way Out material but as of yet (as far as I know) they have only released a 40 track package that includes previously released tracks (+ the 32 track Lou Ragland package).

On the V.A. compilation they have included the 2 Way Out tracks that Lou Ragland (& friends) cut under the name of Volcanic Eruption.

An article about the release from about 9 months ago ...

Guess we can expect further Way Out related stuff from them in the future but can't at present confirm this.

There was also a 12 (?) track BONUS LP released as part of the V.A. package but this was a 'limited edition' item that quickly sold out. 

I know it featured tracks by the Sensations, Springers, Betty & Angel, Exceptional 3 and more but don't have the full track listing. Maybe another SS'er has a copy and can list all the cuts it contained.
