Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1963 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol.4



Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1963 - Standards Versions and Revamps Vol 4

Fourth volume in our series of selections of covers from the same period, this mix focuses on the year 1963, gathering Jazz, Soul, Folk, Latin, French Chanson, and Rhythm & Blues interpretations of hits from the past of that time. Of course after 1960, 1961 and 1962, it's not a big big surprise to our listeners, and some cool versions of standards will give a feeling of a swim in charted waters: 'Hallelujah I Love Her So', 'Take Five', 'Comin Home Baby', 'Fever'… We tried our best to go diggin' further (without replaying tunes already aired on the Paris DJs podcast), and if this for sure is NOT a definitive statement of what a cover was then, this mix is at least a cool snapshot of some of that concept for the year 1963. The selection could have included one or two reggae/ska thingies though… we'll try not to forget the Jamaican island next time!
