BBC 4-Cover versions

Recommended Posts

watch it from 32 mins in, its about Tainted Love. Gloria Jones's account of how it got be played is hilarious IMHO. Apparently a sailor in Liverpool gave to a young kid for a cigarette and the kid to it to the northern scene and the rest is history.... No mention of Richard Sealing finding it in USA and making it a big sound in Va Va's ! 

Interesting documentary and worth a watch to remind you of how many British pop acts were singer cover versions. Strangely, there is no mention of Lulu "Shout"
