This is so good, i have bought it twice just in case something happens to one of them!...It is true that some of the tracks can make you whince, but that is only three of them. The most surprising thing though, is that no one has mentioned in their reviews, Lisa Stansfield's "Down in the Depths"......This track alone is well worth buying the album for!

Reworkings of some classic Cole Porter tracks, the iggy pop and deborah harry version of 'well did you evah' is worth the price of admission alone.

Cole Porter is often considered to be one of the greatest songwriters of all time and this collection shows you why. Rarely can a cover of a song be done well but this album proves that not only can a Cole Porter song be covered well but also updated brilliantly. Although when you put these songs in the hands of such talented artists, should we have expected anything else? This album covers all genres and tastes and does it well. A must for any collection.

I had this vinyl when it came out many years ago... one day suddenly i had the urge to listen to it and who has one of those players anymore??? I don't. So I went online and bought the cd. And it is one of my top 5 cds if not the very best. I love it! It's still so current and charming. All the songs were covered so well by such a varied array of artists... it could please a very large number of people... There's something for everyone in this album.

I bought this album on vinyl when it first came out and I played it constantly. Covering old classics was quite unusual then and the twist these 80s artists put on Cole Porter's creations were astringent and exciting. Now I'm nostalgic for nostalgia. It's been a few years but it still sounds fresh and interesting. I didn't realise that there were Red, Hot and Blue versions of a variety of genre so I'm going to try them out next.

Format: Audio CD
Cole Porter (1891-1964) was among the closeted gay artists of his era--and the idea of collecting modern versions of his work for release as an AIDS fundraiser was truly inspired. But the hard truth is that few singers have the vocal skills that a Porter song demands, and the resulting RED HOT + BLUE is an extremely inconsistent mix of the truly sublime and the truly dire.
On the sublime side, the Neville Brothers offer a truly elegant reworking of the seldom performed but incredibly beautiful "In The Still of the Night," infusing the delicate melody with their own unique multicultural sound to tremendous effect. Fine Young Cannibals also do a remarkable version--and one that would have been sure to bring a wicked grin to Porter's face--of the often censored "Love for Sale."
Many other selections are equally effective. Although U2's version of "Night and Day" takes some getting used to, it is worth the effort and becomes unexpectedly haunting. Sinead O'Connor and K.D. Lang score memorably with "You Do Something To Me" and "So In Love;" and Annie Lennox offers the single finest version of "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" I have ever heard.
But the rest of the thing ranges from the merely "interesting" to the flat out awful. Neneh Cherry is one of the few rap artist I actually like--but she would have done better to take fewer liberties with "I've Got You Under My Skin," and frankly both Tom Waits and Salif Keita should have stayed in bed on the days they were scheduled to record their versions of "It's Alright With Me" and "Begin the Beguine." Indeed, Keita's "Begin the Beguine" is easily the single most awful version of any Porter song by any artist that I've ever heard.

This is a great classic cd that as all the top stars singing some of the great songs from one of the great song writers of the twenties century , you just have to have this album as it has some of the best cover songs around .
