WHEN PIGS FLY: Songs You Never Thought You’d Hear, is truly that! Songs you never thought you’d hear recorded by musicians you’d never thought to cover that song! What makes the album so interesting is that each artist’s distinctive style brings a uniquely different experience to the way the song was originally recorded. The record is unlike anything you’ve heard before. It’s only available at http://www.pigsflycd.com
The CD includes Ani DiFranco and film star Jackie Chan doing a re-make of the Natalie Cole classic, Unforgettable; new wave icons Devo performing Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s Ohio; 80’s pop stars, The Fixx, creating their own take on the Nancy Sinatra hit, These Boots Are Made For Walkin’; Lesley Gore singing the AC/DC tune, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap; and country music legends, The Oak Ridge Boys, recording the Kansas megahit, Carry On My Wayward Son.
The album also features original 60’s pop stars The Box Tops (with Alex Chilton) performing their version of Blondie’s Call Me; and Herman’s Hermits (with Peter Noone) doing their rendition of Billy Idol’s White Wedding. Billy Preston covers Duran Duran’s Girls On Film; and, the only track previously released, Roy Clark performs Louis Armstrong’s classic What A Wonderful World. The CD also includes recordings by The Connells and The Neanderthal Spongecake; and a unique version of Peter Gabriel’s Shock The Monkey by Hawaiian legend, Don Ho.
