Saturday Lucky Dip
This weeks Lucky Dip is Stoned a MOJO compilation from September 2007.
It is a mix of original versions of songs subsequently covered by the Stones and also some of their songs recorded by others.
Before I had even listened to it I had decided that Sandie Shaw and Nancy Sinatra were going on. I mean, come on Sandie Shaw and Nancy Sinatra for goodness sake!!
First the good news. Nancy's version of As Tears Go By is not bad. Not as good as Marianne Faithfull's version granted but pretty good nevertheless.
Now for the not so good news. I'm afraid that Sandie's version of Sympathy for the Devil is pretty dire. But hey it is going on.
By way of compensation here are Turin Brakes with a lovely version of Moonlight Mile.
More random nonsense next Saturday
