Welcome to the covered
You wil find over 225
spread over 220 albums. It content
all kind of covered Mungo Jerry songs from all over the world. In
different languages such like, English, Spanish, Greek, French, Dutch, Norwegian etc.
etc... and also instrumentals.
All songs covered are written by Ray
Dorset and are mostly hits from the seventies. Of course the first, world wide,
mega hit: "In The
Summertime" But also Baby
Jump, Mighty Man, Lady Rose, Somebody Stole My Wife, Maggie, Lana, Living
Ain't Easy, Peace In The Country and
a lot more.
From the best to the worst, there are some
really good covers made, listen for example to Shaggy's and (Sir)Elton John's (Reg Dwight)
"In The Summertime" , but there some
more really good version, Bob Dylan used "In The Summertime"
during a few sound checks... You can listen it all by your self because all cover
songs listed, has a mp3 samples of 60sec.
On the album "Living Next
Door To Alice Cooper" from the Norwegian band "Dei Nye
Kappelanane" you can listen to the Norwegian song "Anne
Britt" (Lady Rose) and on the 7" single from "Faraon"
you can hear the Chech version from "Peace In The Country", and
don't forget to listen to the version from "In The Summertime"
sung by "Headline"... And "Bees In The Summertime"
from "Mieskööri Surisiat" Some are recorded with additional
vocals from Ray, listen to "In The Summertime" from
"Robin" , the latest I found is "It's A Secret" . There are also terrible covers made with
weard translations, mostly from "In The Summertime" ... As
Melanie Safka already sung in 1970:
what they done to my song ma" You can
explore it all out by yourself and
you will be surprised, in both ways.
And don't forget: The original
version is always the best !!
