Prince covers are notoriously hard to do, as the originals are often outstanding (in my humble opinion) so with hesitation I downloaded Sigue Sigue Sputnik's I Could Never Take The Place of Your Man. At first, I dug the music, but not the vocals. But, having played it 12 times this afternoon (LOUD), and they wisely revved up the music and downplayed the vocals, I think it's quite good. Apparently, they've been busy with all sorts of covers, and even a whole ELVIS (P.) album released only in Japan. (those Japenese seem to always get that stuff, but then again, aren';t they responsible for CHEAP TRICK getting popular, ugh). Needless to say, I tried to get some of those, but with the exception of one Led Zeppelin, couldn't find more. Maybe later.
