LAST NIGHT IN SOHO COVERS
James Last – LP Non Stop Dancing 7 (Germany: Polydor 249.247) 12/68
Eleanor Rigby – Over And Over / Last Night In Soho (UK: Waterloo Sunset RUSS 103) 4/87
Eleanor’s career was short yet controversial and mysterious, and this, along with the quality and limited quantity of her releases has led to her becoming a cult figure on the collector’s market. Her total output was only 4 singles and one album (Censorship) which now changes hands for big money. Her legendary debut single `I Want To Sleep With You’ was released in 1985 and came complete with free condom. This caused quite a stir and although the record was subsequently banned, it went on to become a mod classic that every mod of the time and today had to have in their collection. With the video and concerts also banned shortly afterwards it was like the Sex Pistols all over again. More singles followed. `Take Another Shot At My heart’, `Mad Xmas’ and the classic `Over and Over’ which one journalist described as the best single Ray Davies never wrote! The B-side of ‘Over And Over’ was DDDBMT’s Last Night In Soho!
