Northern does swing

Freebasing Andyontherock


Too much time over the Christmas break and started listening to different versions of our popular and beloved soul tracks.

I was pretty amazed at how many "Swing" versions there are out there. Whether they are the original version or cover versions.

I will start you off with a couple of examples and its up to you to find some more, you never know someone might make a compilation lp with them on.

Call Me was never a soul record to start with, it was written by Tony Hatch and originally recorded by Petula Clark.  When it was when it was covered by Chris Montez, its production was akin to the Eddie Bishop version.  Always classed this as a more of a Jazz record as I remember Call me being played on Jazz radio shows then I was young. 

For me its always been abount the production and delivery of a song that makes it Soul, not where it originally came from or what happened after it was first recorded.
