Mexican "covers" set!

0
0
Much like the Danish set the other day with all those hilarious cover versions, we are treated to
another similar set, this one from Mexico technically titled "Rare Mxican Cuts From the 60's"....difference being these dudes dont even attempt English, and sometimes the results just sound hilarious.....or, maybe it's just me? ........I could name every cut and it major props, but a few highlights:

Migue Angel & Los Sharpes check in with the very rare, hardly ever covered chestnut, "Gloria", and Los Locos Del Ritmo dig up the hardly-ever before chestnut "Hey Joe"..Los Yaki take a turn at "Jumpin' Jack Flash", Los Johnny Jets take down "Get Off Of My Cloud", Los Ovnis interperet "Mothers Little Helper, and Los Apson give us "Satisfaction".......evidently the Stones were somewhat big in Mexico. Other interesting takes are Los Monstrous take on the Pretty Things "Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut", and Los Belmont's "Over Under Sideways Down".......


Like the Danish set, this is without a doubt worth a listen, provided your sense of humor has not been surgically removed.......maybe you'll only want to hear it once, but you SHOULD hear it at least once.....if you've been collecting all these sets, you won't want to be without this one, at least give it a listen and a commenou have time. Never have too many Stones covers anyway, right? The Stones brilliantly took American Blues and made them undeniably their own British sound.......it's interesting to hear banm other lands (Mexico in this case), spinning the sound for a third generation, American Blues-becomes British Blues-becomes Mexican "blues"? It's a fucking small world, and more music, the more better!

It's Sunday Night as I type this, sometimes on Sunday I try to get a few posts ready for the week so I don't have to work so hard during the week. Anyway, I remember listening to this one several years ago and loving it, can't wait to listen to it again tomorrow on the morning drive, hope it's as zany as I recall!
