re-cover versions and re-revivalism

 I did not know of this EP by Amy Winehouse (well I guess it was barely ever released?)

including covers of  two songs - "Monkey Man" and "You're Wondering Now" - that were already covered by The Specials (plus one of their originals)

what do you call it when someone covers a cover? 

A re-cover version?

Amy's in re-covery....

I like most things about Amy Winehouse - apart from her singing voice and nearly all her music

Watched the doc and was struck by her sharp comments about music as well as that radioactive glow of  natural magnetism - that old black-magic charazma 

But ooh dear but when she opened her mouth and attempted jazz...
