The LP cover reads: “Bobby Scott plays his original music for A Taste Of Honey produced on Broadway by David Merrick.” The 1960 Broadway version (starring Angela Lansbury) of the 1958 British play was embellished by a musical score written by musician, songwriter, record producer Scott. He won a Grammy for composing the song “A Taste Of Honey,” also co-wrote “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

Just heard Nicky Thomas's 1970 reggae take on 'Love of the common people' which has always been a Paul Young song (from No Parlez) in my musical timeline. I mean I knew it was a cover, that's all Young does/did but I never bothered to find the original.

And of course it wasn't Nicky Thomas that recorded it originally - it was The Four Preps!



Arrangement really does change a song's feel.

Dang. The Specials' "A Message To You Rudy" is a cover.

Dandy Livingstone wrote and recorded in 1967 as "Rudy, A Message To You". Great song though.

I learnt something.

The original version of West End Girls by the Pet Shop Boys was mixed by Florida's Bobby Orlanda, and was a minor hit in 1984. It was remixed by Stephen Hague and became huge in 1985 (that's the only version I knew).

Here's the original

The Platters' Harbor Lights was originally recorded 23 years earlier by Frances Langford.

I always assumed Only After Dark from Human League's Travelogue album was an original. Well, no Mick Ronson co-wrote it and recorded it on his debut 1974 album Slaughter on 10th Avenue. From glam rock to synth pop in 5 years. Not really that different - apart from the instrumentation.
