VA - Take Cover! 20 Cover Versions From The Alternative Pop/Rock Scene 1980-1984




Well, here is a mixtape I made covers. Most US and UK acts from the "alternative" rock/pop/new wave/post-punk scene. The recordings are from 1980-1984, and the original versions orginates (mostly) from the 60s. Nothing special - It's just a mixtape. Hope some of you find a song/version you never heard that blow your mind. If someone want to share some of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy albums from 1984-1991, please feel free and share them in the comment field. Have a nice friday.

  1. Nice compilation

    I am going to see Duffo - Jeff Duff in a couple of weeks he is doing a retrospective of his career, lead singer of Kush ( a big version of MacArthur Park was their major hit)and many years in England performing wrapped in cling plastic. A true individual
