TheFoe says:
Hi everyone, I know a covers nom/vote thread has been done before but quite often a band/artist will come up with a new cover, probably quite a few since we last did this, so I thought we might get away with a one off. So please nominate a cover version of a relatively well known song, noms open to everyone and ends 10pm Monday. Have a great weekend and keep safe! :-)

I double checked on allmusic.com and it does seem to be the only recording she made of that song. But it IS a great album anyway.

Cheers Val - I have a number of the tracks already but having scoured all the charity shops in a 20 mile radius I think I am going to have to overcome my natural extreme parsimony and get a copy.

Val H. says:
Sparky - I still think you'll enjoy it. From AMG's review:
"Party Doll, a greatest-hits collection, stays in line with Carpenter's approach of giving listeners substance rather than gloss. Instead of releasing the typical "best-of" collection that includes only the standard radio hits, Carpenter has put enough thought and imagination into Party Doll that even familiar fans will be surprised. Her career making hits are here, but often in an alternate form such as the live version of "Down at the Twist and Shout" recorded at Super Bowl XXXI or the version of "Quittin' Time" from the Ryman Auditorium. Also included are songs from soundtracks and tribute albums and an achingly beautiful cover of the Mick Jagger song that serves as the album's namesake."

And there's a used copy for £1.32 here.

OK Val you've convinced me, no-brainer at that price! THanks.
