Various - Living Doll – American Covers Of UK Hits 2CD (CD)€15,00
Back in the late 50s/early 60s, British artists routinely covered American hits for the UK market – often, with great success – although instances of US acts covering home-grown UK hits were virtually unknown at that time.
This thoroughly unlikely compilation presents 31 rare examples of British hits being covered by US artists, disc 1 featuring the American cover and disc 2 comprising the original UK versions.
Featuring artists as disparate as: Connie Francis; Andy Williams; Joni James; The Ventures; Robin Luke; Ersel Hickey; The Kalin Twins; Margie Singleton and Bobby Vinton covering UK hits by: Cliff Richard; Anthony Newley; Shirley Bassey; Bert Weedon; Marty Wilde; Adam Faith, Joe Brown; Helen Shapiro and Eden Kane.
Several of these US cover versions are almost unfeasibly obscure, and have never previously appeared on CD.
