Sandro Oliva‘s cover of FZ’s “Watermelon In Easter Hay” (one of the very best covers of that particular song I’ve heard, I might add) from the above clip is from the 2005 4CD private release, “NEVER COVERED” (for family and friends).
Long before making “NEVER COVERED” I recorded “LOVES OF MY LIFE”, a collection of FZ songs sang in Italian, along with a few instrumentals.
This is one of them.
The project has never been put out for copyright reasons, but I still have fun listening to “BROWN SHOES DON’T MAKE IT”, “JOE’S GARAGE/PEE”, “HELP I’M A ROCK”, “GO CRY..”, “CAMARILLO BRILLO” and “TURNING AGAIN”, the Italian Way!
I’m sure Frank would have appreciated it.
Unfortunally he got ill and after that more shit happened, so that I never asked the ZFT permission for releasing the italian translations.
Oh, well… maybe now that I’m not a Grandmother anymore…
But no, never mind.
I’m too busy with MY OWN MUSIC!!
