CD Review: Various Artists – About a Girl (FDR Records)

Very interesting a fun comp released by the music fans at Face Down Records featuring covers of well-known songs with girl’s names in the titles. Rock and roll classics including Bruce Springsteen’s Rosalita and The Turtles’ Elenore are covered by a great roster of up and coming power pop bands including The Dipsomaniacs, Milton and The Devil’s Party, Bastard’s of Melody,Trolleyvox, The Blank Pages, and Taggart among many others. My faves are the band Late Night Televison’s cover of The Looking Glass’ hit Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) and Bastard’s of Melody’s great cover of cult band The Producers’ song She Sheila that fucking rocks!

Great stuff and a fun listen. This CD may not change the world but if you don’t have a good time while you listen to it you may need a personality implant. This CD is a stone blast!!
