The Last New/Old Hellacopters?

Got what I think is the last CD with at least a few Hellas songs that I don’t have the other day, from Japan, the last of the Amazon Santa motherlode. There’s one song I still don’t have here and there, mostly on vinyl, but I don’t do vinyl anymore. It has several covers on it – my second choice would’ve been “Cold Night For Alligators” a Roky Erickson song if you’re into that. I give you this, an Otis Redding cover. Yes, the Otis Redding original is better, but a dope like me wouldn’t even know it were it not for the Hellacopters. Hopefully Peter can stand the vocals, which he says leave him limp as Rosie O’Donnell in a puddle of puke.

  1. The band sounds fantastic. Like I’ve said every other time, they can play and you can really hear it on the covers. Some originals, too, but that’s not what we have here. I can stand these vocals, but if they were good this would be a giant hit.

    Otis wrote These Arms of Mine, Respect, and Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, plus a lot of others. If someone’s underrating him it’s because they aren’t paying attention.
