トッド・ラングレンと言えば、実験的ポップミュージックのルーツ的な人ですが、ミュージシャンズ・ミュージシャンの名にふさわしく日本のテクノポップ&ニュー・ウェイヴ系のアーティスト達がトッド自身のミックスも含めてカヴァー合戦しております。サエキけんぞうのプロデュースの元、元ポータブル・ロックの鈴木智文、ご無沙汰していた鈴木さえ子、鈴木慶一とライダース系の人達、高橋幸宏、トッドもプロデュースした高野寛とLA-PPISCH、窪田晴男、何故か杉田かおる等錚々たる人達がカヴァーしてます。サエキけんぞうによる企画本『トッド・ラングレン 全能の人』も同時発売しました。


While Todd Rundgren is a root of experimental pop music, Japanese techno pop & new wave artists worthy of the name of musician's musician competed to cover his songs including his own mixing. Under the production of Kenzo Saeki, his songs were covered by prominent people such as Tomofumi Suzuki formerly in Portable Rock, Saeko Suzuki who has been quiet, Keiichi Suzuki and Moonriders-related people, Yukihiro Takahashi, Hiroshi Takano and LA-PPISCH who Todd produced before, Haruo Kubota, somehow Kaoru Sugita.

You can listen to new interpretation of Plasticts by ex Plastic (Hajime Tachibana, Toshio Nakanishi), Neo New Wave people (Spoozys, Motocompo), etc. on the top of Pizzicato Five's "Good" (which seems to be a new mix). They should have put more efforts on the cover art as Hibiki Tokiwa's work.

This is the cover collection by the people around Bowie such as Iggy Pop, Mott The Hoopl, Oscar and New Romantic to Electro Pop people such as Midge Ure, Tony Hadley, SSS, Duran Duran, Billy Mackenzie, TFF. This is the collection of the past covers rather than the covers for this album, and they have high level of quality with many unique interpretations. TFF's "Ashes To Ashes" is especially great.

Devotees (Tribute to Devo)

12. Bohonian Plimquins: Gut Feeling

マイケル『ディーヴォティーズ』LPは幾つかのバンドによる(たぶん最初の)トリビュート・アルバムです。ロスのKROQというラジヲ局が1978年にディーヴォのカヴァー曲をする地元バンド対象のコンテストをしました。ディーヴォ自身により勝者が選ばれラジヲ局のよりこのアルバムに名誉の収録発売されました。リノ・レーベルからリリースされました(カタログ#RNSP301)。LPの裏ジャケットの以下記載『このLPは1978と1979年の夏の間に送られたテープをKROQが編集し出来ました。KROQ、リノ・レコードとディーヴォは『ディーヴォティーズ』コンテストに参加した全てのミュータントに感謝します。『Okie from Muskogee』以外はディーヴォの曲のヴァリエーションです。いい曲ですが何故この曲が入ったかはわかりません。一番おかしいカヴァーはディーヴォを道化師と非難するファイアー・マン版の『Jocko Homo』、『Jocko Bozo』です。 いじわるだけれど、おかしい。


<Michael> The "Devotees" LP was a tribute record (probably one of the first) with songs from SEVERAL bands on it. A Radio station in Los Angeles (KROQ) ran a contest in 1978 for local bands to contribute covers of DEVO songs. DEVO themselves picked out the winners which had the honor of being included on the "Devotees" LP that was put out by the radio station. It was released on the Rhino label, catalog # RNSP 301. From the back of the LP: "This LP was compiled from tapes sent in by KROQ listeners during the summers of 1978 and 79. KROQ, Rhino Records and DEVO would like to thank all the mutants who entered the Devotees contest." All the songs are variations on DEVO songs except "Okie from Muskogee". I'm clueless why that got included on the LP. Cool song though. The funniest cover song is the Fireman's version of Jocko Homo "Jocko Bozo" where they accuse DEVO of being clowns. It's kinda mean, but funny.

これは数あるトリビュート・アルバムの中でもベストの部類です。セイント・エティエンヌ、ブラーのメンバー、ケニッキー、ダブスター等の90年代UKポップ&ロック集団が『ゲーリー・ニューマンってこんな良かったの?』と思わせるユニークなカヴァーをやりまっくています。ゲーリーはちょっと重いと思っていた人にもお勧めです。


This is one of the best among many tribute albums available. The U. K. pop & rock groups such as St. Etienne, Blur's members, Kenickie and Dubstar made unique covers which make me feel "Gary Numan was so great, wasn't he?" Highly recommended to even those who felt Gary is too heavy.

長らく持っているにもかかわらず、忘れていました。TVドラマ「ストロベリー・オン・ザ・ショートケーキ」の主題歌で、再ブームが起こっているABBAですが、それで思い出して、聴きなおしました。Bananarama、Erasure、Army Of Lovers等はなかなかいいカヴァーをしています。


While I have been having this for a while, I forgot about it. ABBA is in the middle of revival due to the TV drama "Strawberry On The Shortcake", and it reminded this album for me to listen to it again. Bananarama, Erasure, Army Of Lovers, etc. are doing nice covers.

<サトル特派員>私が買ったのは輸入盤ですが、タイトル部分の(A TRIBUTE TO DEPECHE MODE)というのはどこにもクレジットされていません(勝手に付けました)。輸入盤しか持っていないので、有名どころ以外のアーティストの詳細は不明です。意外なアレンジがあったり、バリエーション豊富なカバーで好アルバムだと思います。


<Correspondent Satoru> While I bought the imported disc, the part of title "A Tribute To Depeche Mode" is not shown anywhere (I put it). Since it's imported, no details available. I think it's a nice album with some unexpected arragements and wide variations.

This is a tribute album to Noel Coward who was popular in 20's to 30's by British musicians produced by Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant and Tris Penna. Track #2, 3, 5 are recommended. It's worth listening to the techno tune by the Devine Comedy.

<サトル特派員>
「Michel Polnareff」のトリビュートです。こちらで紹介するのはジャンル的にどうかな?とは、思ったんですが、 Elli et Jacno やPizzicato Five、さらによく見るとSaint Etienne、Nick Cave、あと私の持っている仏盤では、The Residents、Marc Almond、Pascal Comelade、Peter Hammillなど蒼々たるメンツが揃っているので。


It's better to buy the original French release with 2 CDs released on EMI Music France than the Japanese digest version on Toshiba EMI.
<Correspondent Satoru> It's a tribute album to Michel Polnareff. While I initally thought it may not be appropriate for this site, I decided to introduce as it contains deluxe line-up of people such as Elli et Jacno, Pizzicato Five, further checking...Saint Etienne, Nick Cave, and in the French version I have, the Residents, Marc Almond, Pascal Comelade, Peter Hammill.

<サトル特派員>タイトル通りデペッシュ・モードのトリビュート。国内盤でも出ていた「for the MASSES」は、有名どころ(スマパン、キュア等)も参加していましたが、こちらは、私個人の殆ど知らないアーティスト。唯一知っているのは09曲目の「Psyche」のみ(確か本人からの紹介文がPOP ACADEMY内にありましたね)。サウンド的にはこちらの方が「テクノ〜エレポ」しているし、初期の曲が多いのも好み。


<Correspondent Satoru> As the title says, it's a tribute to Depeche Mode. While "for the MASSES" which was also released in Japan contained know acts such as Smashing Pumpkins, Cure, this contains the artists I do know about. The only one I know is track 9 "Psyche" (there was their self introduction in POP ACADEMY). This one sounds more Techno & Electro with more early tracks which I prefer.

こんなのよく日本盤がリリースされたなーと感心するThe Human Leagueのトリビュート。オマケに17曲目は、日本盤のみのボーナストラック。小暮秀夫氏がライナー担当。アメリカ(Magnetic Fields関連、シカゴ系多し!)、イギリス、デンマークのアーティストが、個性的なカヴァー。Starsのカヴァーは、New Orderっぽくて笑える。


I was impressed by the fact that this tribute to the Human League was released in Japan. In addition, the 17th track is the bonus track only for the Japanese release. Mr. Hideo Kogure wrote the linernotes. The artists from the U. S. (around Magnetic Fields and Chicago), the U. K. and Denmark made unique covers. The cover by Stars sounds like New Order, that makes me smile.

<サトル特派員>上の2枚はHYPNOTIC(HYPNOTICってどこ?って思っていたら、"A DIVISION OF CLEOPATRA" と書いてありました)からのトリビュート物。アーティストについては一切不明です。内容的には、ん〜、他のクラフトワーク関連のHPでも誉めていることはありません。イレージャーも同様にあまりおすすめできません(そんなもの紹介するな。ハイ、すいません)。クラフトワークの方は、タイトル通りトランスっぽいだけ(VOL IIもあるそうです)。イレージャーの方は、ただカバーしただけ。もう少し曲に対する独自の解釈があってもいいんじゃないのかな。


<Correspondent Satoru> The above two are tribute album on Hypnotic (I wonder what Hyonotic is. It said "A Division Of Cleopatra". No information available on the artists. The content is not appreciated much in the other Kraftwerk Home Pages. I also cannot recommend Erasure's as well (Don't introduce these stuff. Sorry!). Kraftwerk's one is Trance-esque as the title suggests (Vol. II is also available). Erasure's one is just covered. I feel they should make their own interpretation.

<サトル特派員>上記は全て米国の「CLEOPATRA」から昨年出されたトリビュート・シリーズです。こうしてみるとHeaven 17、Dead or Alive、Information Societyは、完全にレギュラー化してますね。そこに Berlin、Gene Loves Jezebel、Gary Numan、Sigue Sigue Sputnikさらに Annabella、Tiffany、Dale Bozzioなどの女性ボーカリスト、コーラスのみですが Boy George、さらに Front Line Assembly、KMFDM、Die Kruppsら、インダストリアル〜エレボ系まで、80'(エイティーズ)ファンにとっては凄い(または、なんじゃコリャ的な)面子で、このシリーズ目が離せません。次はクラフトワークのトリビュートか?Platinum
<Sonic Boom氏>(Virgin Voices 2について)ジグジグ!!フロックオブシーガルス!!ミッシングパーソンズ!! 今年はいったい何年かと毎回疑問に感じます・・・。
<サトル特派員>


<Correspondent Satoru> All the above were released as a tribute series on Cleopatora. As I look at these, Heaven 17, Dead or Alive and Information Society are totally regular members. In addition, Berlin, Gene Loves Jezebel, Gary Numan, Sigue Sigue Sputnik, further more femal vocalists such as Annabella, Tiffany, Dale Bozzio, and Boy George though chorus only, moreever Indutrial and EBM such as Front Line Assembly, KMFDM, Die Krupps - the line-up is amazing for 80's fans. A tribute to Kraftwerk may be the next?
<Mr. Sonic Boom> (About Virgin Voices 2) Sigue Sigue!! A Flock Of Seagulls!! Missing Persons!! I wonder what year this year is....
