Cultural Covers - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.9


Each week on Vinyl Joblottin’ we buy a bundle of vinyl at auction (or find one in a record shop, charity shop, car boot sale, etc). The records are a slice of a collection, giving us a glimpse into a collector’s past. Then we spin each joblot into a theme for you.

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 9 here

A miscellaneous joblot is always a gamble: you never know what to expect. The records this week are all 7”s and come from a range of labels, eras and styles. Within the joblot I found several cover versions that were recorded in a different country to the original. They include an Australian disco classic with a Mexican twist, a French version of a Motown bestseller, an Aretha Franklin song now a Congolese cover, a French-Canadian homage to Elvis, and a Bobby Darin chart topper respun by a Croatian singer. 

This episode features records from a joblot of 7 records that cost £8.30. Alban Low is your joblotter for this 20 minute episode.

2. Un Verre De Whisky - Monty
