I recently acquired an old Soul Jazz Records compilation called "Hustle! which consists of reggae cover versions of disco hits, None of the songs on there are ever likely to feature in the Single Song Sunday slot, so I thought I would share a couple of Mandatory Reggae Versions with you now instead.
I enjoyed the album but a lot of the tracks are not that different to the original - there is a very nice version of "Don't Let It Go To Your Head", for example, but it is only a mild lope away from Jean Carn. So I have chosen two that made a bit more effort.
They have other attractions as well. In the first track, the lead singer - yet another Campbell I believe - appears to sing that "it's like pissing in the ocean" 45 seconds in. As for the second, she's called Carol Cool!!! What more reason do you need?
