          I really like:
          Leroy HolmesÂ’s take on Emotions by Love
          Good &amp; Bad boys version of JimiÂ’s Fire
          Johnny HarrisÂ’s version of Paint It Black, before it turns into figure skating music
          Mike Samms Singers – He Who Would Valiant Be
          Mighty Joe DrakeÂ’s GOMLW
          Sharon Jones &amp; DapkingÂ’s version of (Kenny RogersÂ’s) Condition My Condition Is In

          And The NeopolitanÂ’s cover of Crosstown Traffic - coming soon on HF&amp;S, the LP&#33;

            Oh, and that Brillo favourite: It Was A Very Good Year as sung by Della Reese - one of the best funky covers I can think of...

              Good call on the Della Reece Nick, just beat me to it...

              One that&#39;s doing it for me at the minute is the Deadrie Wilson Tabac version of &quot;Get Back&quot;..

              oh, and Mary Queenie Lyons doin&#39; &quot;Fever&quot; - rocks &#33;
              If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                        ...And that Blue Mitchell cover of &#39;The Message&#39; that Bill played at H,F&amp;S gets my vote.

                          Nice one Ed, I forgot about the West St Mob 12&quot;...  

                          I recognised your drumkit Ed, but not that shirt &#33;&#33;    

                          Bill (LBG) - Which Blue Mitchell LP is &quot;The Message&quot; on ?? Hope this ain&#39;t    &#33;

                            no, it&#39;s a portly German gentleman playing a splendidly-named Sonor &#39;The Swinger&#39; drumkit.
