Stardate August 1962. The Tornadoes are in the charts with the instrumental track Telstar (yes that blue & white round thing thats my avatar over there on the left of every post). Come December 1962 its rerecorded with words Its most definitely not an improvement over the original! For the first time on the forum I present Magic Star........




If thats not enough of an indignity to a cracking original we can have the rerecording of the rerecording from Feb 1963.....For the second time on the forum I present Magic Star

Stardate summer 1977. Baccara top the charts all round Europe with a disco beat titled Yes Sir I Can Boogie.

Almost 40 years later one of the original singers (Mayte Mateos) teams up with Sala & the Strange Sounds (nope never heard of them.....) to release a rock version......

Its Stardate 1977. Smokie are in the charts with Needles & Pins Quiet at the back whoever is grumbling about another piece of ancient history!

December 2019 its covered by Norwegian heavy rockers Jorn. Pretty good too!
