Amy Winehouse is on the road to self-destruction (some could argue that she’s already reached her destination) and, sadly—because of this—her Ska EP has fallen very low under the radar.
With absolutely no fanfare, her 2 Tone-inspired 7″EP entitled, Amy Winehouse: The Ska EP is 4 tracks of Amy interpreting Ska classics that you may or may not have heard first from listening to British ska legends, The Specials.
Here are the covers:
A1. Monkey Man (Toots & The Maytals)
A2. Hey Little Rich Girl (The Specials)
B1. You’re Wondering Now (Andy & Joe)
B2. Cupid (Sam Cooke)
My short review is this: Her song choice is fun, her vocals are strong and I don’t believe anyone has ever done a ska version of Cupid by Sam Cooke (my favorite of the 4). This EP is worth listening to.
