Winehouse’s cover of The Speicals’ “Hey Little Rich Girl”, off The Ska ep, which you can purchase here.
I know I’m mad late on this, but nobody made noise about this Amy Winhouse ep. It’s a red 7-inch where she covers The Specials (“Hey Little Rich Girl”), Toots And The Maytals (“Monkey Man”), Andy & Joe (“You’re Wondering Now”) and Sam Cooke (“Cupid”). It’s just 4 tracks, all of which were either previously released b-sides or live takes, but they’re killer renditions– showing her talent and how it’s most obvious when she’s non-chalant about it (like in this video). Apparently, I like this a lot more than this guy did.
I heard of this through emails I’ve been getting about another upcoming ep of hers, The Nelson Mandela ep. It’s supposedly a 7″ of live versions of “(Free) Nelson Mandela”, “Valerie”, and “Rehab”, which comes out soon.
