5.0 out of 5 stars The Carpet label, 6 July 2011
This review is from: Dot's Cover to Cover: Hit Upon Hit (Audio CD)
Dot was all about cover versions and thank God for that.
Some came from the Top 100 some came from a more obscure source such as Tab Hunter's cover of the song Sonny James had covered from the little known Ric Cartey.Or Nick Todd's Plaything which had first been made by the unknown Ted Newman with a girl group called the Playmates (who were not the later more famous ones) Todd was the brother of Dot's biggest star Pat Boone who rarely did anything which was not a cover or revival-even his first B side had been made by the Dot label and was one of a number of different songs called Tra La La.
This of course is a giant plus factor-everyone should do covers.
Hardly surprising that Gale Storm won the race with I Hear You Knocking as her version was vastly superior to the Smiley Lewis original.
Strange though that Jim Lowe should cover Blue Suede Shoes-already a No 1 on 3 charts and only months before he recorded The Green Door
