Now then. Od Tapo Imi appear to be Chicago’s Steel Drum ensemble, and they give it a good old go. Stranger still is their cover of Kirsty live standard (and Ramones classic) ‘I Wanna Be Sedated’. Find both on &lquo;Tank Tops & Flip Flops’, their 2008 release. In 2009 we have an album from Calpysonuts (Rob and Lynley), who appear to play cruise liners and parties in the Florida region. Unheard, but it is surely our song. New Mediterrana Group’s version was was released in 2010.

A version from May 2010’s aimed squarely at Clubland with a thumping dance backbeat over a pretty standard rendition by the mysterious Deborah. Hear it for yourself on Spotify – search for the album ‘Fiesta Compilation, Vol. 2’ or ‘Balli Di Gruppo 2 Part 1’. Another clubby cover from 2008 can be found on the album ‘Baila Mambo’ and on a various artists CD in 2009 called ‘Fabulous Salsa’ by Baila Mambo. It’s on Spotify under Baila Mambo.

Ginger Leigh (2011)

Ginger Leigh sang it live in downtown Austin, along with ‘Mambo de la Luna’. According to Wes E, “not too badly either. Stylistically, she is a shapeshifter and as eclectic as advertised. It’s good to hear some MacColl music live once in a while, especially in the heart of Texas.”
