Présentation de l'éditeur

Which Blondie Top Five was originally a flop for a West Coast power pop band? Who wrote Alice Cooper's 1973 hit 'Hello Hurray', and which folk singer first recorded it? Who launched their career with a tear and a cover of a little known Prince song? Where was Joe Cocker sitting when he came up with the idea of covering 'With a Little Help from my Friends?'. Everybody likes a good song and a good story. The 100 Greatest Cover Versions traces the histories of some of the great songs you may know only as second-hand recordings and explores some unusual and creative takes on a few of pop's well-known tracks. Based on the Independent's popular long-running Story of the Song column, this collection features previously unpublished pieces alongside fully expanded, updated stories. Robert Webb details the background to each song how it was written, who first recorded it and how it came to be covered and explains how, in some cases, the cover version has become more popular than the original. Artists range from Patti Smith to the Happy Mondays, David Bowie to Florence + the Machine, and Stevie Wonder to Robert Wyatt. The book also includes additional further listening suggestions and a bonus track. Whether you download, rip from CD or stream your music, the Ultimate Playlist series provides the perfect accompaniment to your personal compilation. The series aims to guide listeners through large and often bewildering back catalogues of the major artists as well as key genres and styles in popular music. If you love music and you enjoy knowing more about the history behind some of pop's greatest songs, then you will love this book.

2012 British Book published in US in July 2013 - Fun light reading
This 196-page soft-bound book was published in the UK in 2012 and now making it's way across the "pond" to the US. Because it was written for an English audience - the author's columns appear in the "Independent" - some of the artists he covers will not be that familiar to US music fans (at least they weren't to me. And some of the "covers" were for the UK market and covered US hits. Of course the reverse was true when The Beatles songs were covered by American performers. I'd say I was familiar with about 60% of the artists who did the covers but names like Sugababes(cover of "Freak Like Me" by Adina Howard), The Flying Pickets (cover of "Only You" by Yazoo) and a few others. But the author does tell the stories behind big cover hits like "Louie, Louie" (The Kingsmen) and "It's All Over Now" by the Rolling Stones (originally by the Valentinos) .

I learned a few new pieces of info but again, you'll get more out of it if you live in the UK. And there are no illustrations or charts in the book.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
