just heard a version of this wonderful song by the band Slightly Stoopid from the USA and must say they really did a good job covering this ub40 tune from 1988. They really captured the vibe of the song and the wonderfull bass/keyboard/bells sound that the song has. Did anyone else hear this version by Slightly Stoopid? What's your opinion on it?

I LOVE IT!!!

The bass line is so well done. There's something about his voice that is kind of like Ali's.

You're right Joris. Its a decent cover. To be honest I have never really heard a cover of the UBs. And its nice to hear! :D

thanks you guys, just hope you enjoy the stuff! I am now trying to find the live version of ALL I WANT TO DO by No Doubt who include it in their concerts as a tribute to their musical heroes and influences (UB40, Police, etc).

thanks for link! great stuff!

So no-one here has heard the cover of 2-pac's Impossible Love???! :D shocking!

JorisJ
7th May 2005, 11:18 AM
the 2Pac one is an illegal/non-official mix, there is a version of Red Red Wine also with 2Pac and other rappers. There are quite a few non-official mixes on the net with ub40 samples.

Guess UB40 is one of their REGGAE influences, check it:

he album's first single "Somebody" is a blues romp peppered with a timely sample of the late ODB from Wu Tang's "36 Chambers" (eerily recorded less than a month prior to the late hip-hop luminary's overdose, and scratched by the infamous D.J. Field Marshall). The solid bass lines of the band's newest weed anthems "This Joint" and "Fat Spliffs" lend deep grooves to hip-hop rhythms. In fact, reggae legend Barrington Levy, who appears on "See It No Other Way," said, "I took this song back to Jamaica and my kids wouldn't let me take it out of the tape deck."

Boasting dual front men, Slightly Stoopid possesses a unique dynamic and kinship. They share a multitude of influences, from the acoustic leanings of Cat Stevens, Tom Petty, Django Reinhardt, and the Grateful Dead, to old school reggae and dub artists Augustus Pablo, Lee Scratch Perry, Yellowman, and UB40. In addition, their more modern influences such as Sublime and G-Love certainly shine through, and hint towards the band becoming the natural heir to the close-knit musical lineage which spawned them.
