If on the other hand you enjoy the tasty selection of covers the Paris DJs Soundsystem are gathering every month... Then just leave a message of hope that we'll keep Molesting Laura on and on and on and on and on...

Tracklisting :

02. Certain Lions & Tigers - Fever
(from 'El Soul Condor' album, 1970 / Polydor)
Fantastic cover of the Little Willie John classic popularized by Peggy Lee, recently reissued on Peter Herbolzheimer's Big Band Man (4xCD boxset).

03. Ed Maciel E Sua Orquestra - Les Cornichons
(from 'Na Onda' album, 1966 / London Records)
Organic and brassy cover of Nino Ferrer, if anyone's got the Volumes 4/6/7/8/9/10 or 11 of the Na Onda series from Ed Maciel please share...

04. The Howard Roberts Quartet - I Say A Little Prayer
(from 'Out Of Sight' album, 1968 / Capitol)
Cheesy jazz guitar cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's classic written for Dionne Warwick, but the album's artwork is lovely and the melody still to die for.

05. Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra - My Favorite Things
(from 'A Very Ping Pong Christmas' album, 2007 / Ubiquity Records)
Richard Rodgers wrote this standard for the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, then Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass made a big hit with it in 1968 and the song became a jazz standard for John Coltrane and many others. Shawn Lee's version... well it's Shawn Lee and you should be a fan like we are!

06. Ultimate Breaks & Beats - Think (About It)
(from 'Ultimate Breaks & Beats' album, 2008 / Traffic Entertainment)
The 'instrumental covers of famous breakbeats' concept album doesn't work well over one hour, even with Leon Michels and friends playing, but most tracks picked in there independently are neo-classics just like this James Brown cover so don't even hesitate.

07. Hot Fingers Jackson and The Soul Organ-Isation - Ode To Billy Joe
(from 'Hammond Explosion' album, 1968 / Columbia)
One may wonder why Bobby Gentry's original from 1967 became such a huge hit, but won't guess as to why we've chosen this groovy lounge instrumental cover by German organist Dieter Reith (under a pseudonym).

08. The Quantic Soul Orchestra - Get A Move On (Alternate Mix)
(from 'Tru Thoughts Covers' compilation, 2009 / Tru Thoughts Recordings)
Once more, this is NOT a Mr Scruff cover since his Get a Move On is really a remix of Moondog's Bird Lament. The Quantic Soul Orchestra alternate take, from Tru Thoughts' recent collection of covers, definitively rocks, though.

09. Cookin' On 3 Burners - Cars
(from 'Soul Messin' album, 2009 / Freestyle Records)
The Bamboos's guitarist Lance Ferguson also plays in this Australian hammond trio, steaming funk recordings since 1997. Their cover of Gary Numan's 80s synth-pop hit tears the roof off in style: 21st century caffeine funk, tight like a virgin's ass!

10. Dojo Cuts feat. Roxie Ray - Uptight
(from 'Dojo Cuts feat. Roxie Ray' album, 2009 / Record Kicks)
We conclude this mix with another Australian funk band and their raw, live and still soulful take on Stevie Wonder's classic.

Paris DJs, everything you touch is GOLD! You are geniuses. Paris DJs mixes should be taught at schools. Your site is as good as your tunes – the best I’ve used, and the best looking. Artwork is super-fine. Fan-****in-tastic! You get my general opinion. And as for Laura, please keep them coming – they’re an inspiration. And keep up the 21st Century series and all the rest – you never get it wrong. I know it’s easier for people not leave comments, but never underestimate the value you give to the world! Thanks

Thanks for the great mix and the incredible music!
In case you don't know, Nino Ferrer also covered his song from James Booker's "Big Nick".
