Interesting! Now, if I can just find a CD quality copy of the "no whistling" version that Jody mentions in the "Wind Of Change" thread...

Turns out the 2 Robbie Dupree songs in Spanish are available on CD on a comp of his called "Vintage Vol. 2".

And "Kokomo" is on the German CD-single of "California Dreamin'" (although I wouldn't be surprised if it's on something else as well.)

And "I Will Survive" (Spanish) is on CD as well, still awaiting details for the CD title on this one.

And it's still unclear if Carpenters' "Canta" exists only in Spanglish or also in Spanish, but I have a call in to a Carpenters expert who might very well know.

The Russian version of "Wind Of Change" caught my eye
(and $) while browsing through the current 45s bins.
It's on "side 2" of the "Send Me An Angel" U.S. stock 45.


Was issued on CD single:

I received "Mas Amor" by Kim Carnes on 45 today. I figured this version would be a B-side of a promo or perhaps the B-side of a later Carnes single. But surprisingly, it was an A-side in itself.

Hmmm, consecutive catalog nos. - both being top 20 hits from the Spring/Summer of '88. (Thanks for the leads on these, jimct & Hykker.) So, this would obviously beg the following: Who else on MCA was riding high in the top 20 at that time??? (*checks Whitburn's Pop Annual*) While I have no proof at this time, this would suggest that MCA S45-17524 may very well have been Belinda Carlisle's version of "Circle in the Sand" in Spanish, w/ MCA S45-17527 being Pebbles doing "Mercedes Boy" in Spanish (the latter being one I'd love to hear & own, if it exists!). Or did MCA wait until the Fall of '88 before issuing its next Spanish promo 45, reserving S45-17527 for Sir Elton's "A Song..." - er, "Word in Spanish"??? ;-)

My research indicates that the Spanish version of "Make it Real" on MCA S45-17526 was also released commercially here in the U.S. on the 12" single for the song, issued on MCA 23859 (which also featured a Spanglish version). On the other hand, the Spanish version of "I Still Believe" appears to be exclusive to MCA S45-17525 - at least here in the U.S., anyway...

Indeed, it's available on several imports, the most common being the 2013 re-issue of the song's original 1978 parent album, Love Tracks, on the U.K. label Big Break Records (BBR), which is still in print. In addition, it turns out the Spanish version of "I Will Survive" has appeared on ONE U.S. CD to date, which I just acquired myself - but alas, it's pretty rare, as it's a promo-only maxi-single, and thus doesn't qualify for Pat's database...

The hit English version of "I Will Survive" featured prominently in the 1994 film, "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". In fact, if you check Pat's book/database, you'll see that the soundtrack on Mother/Island 314516937 included not one, but TWO versions of the song: the original English 45 version clocking in at (3:16), as well as an English "1993 remix" timed at (4:50). Well, at the time, it seems the label decided to also issue a promo-only CD maxi-single for "I Will Survive", on Mother/Island PRCD 6891-2. Contents as follows, which includes TWO Spanish versions:

track 1: original 7" version (listed 3:15)
track 2: spanish 7" version (listed & actual 3:56)
track 3: 1993 phil kelsey classic 7" mix (listed 3:46)
track 4: 1993 phil kelsey classic 12" mix (listed 7:52)
track 5: spanish 12" version (listed 7:56/actual 7:51)

Track 5 is the original recording that first appeared on the commercial U.S. 12" single back in 1979, on Polydor 512. However, track 2 apparently didn't exist back in 1978-79, as I've found no evidence of a 7" Spanish version from that time (domestic or import), and indeed, the copyright date in the fine print found on the back insert of this promo CD reads "1994" for this particular track, so this was clearly made in the mid '90s, specifically for this promo CD (although it does sound like it was derived from the original 1979 12"). Here are photos of PRCD 6891-2 on Discogs, including both the front & back inserts: Gloria Gaynor - "I Will Survive" (1994 U.S. promo CD maxi-single)

Oh, and since my last post here on this topic, I've also acquired a U.S. commercial/stock 45 of the Spanish version of "Yes, I'm Ready" ("Listos Para Amar") by Teri DeSario with K.C., on Casablanca 2253. (The hit English version was on Casablanca 2227.) My research indicates that this one has never appeared on CD, domestic or import. The B-side is the same as Casablanca 2227, which is Teri solo on "With Your Love" (in English)...

More to follow shortly...

Is the spanish 7" version of "I Will Survive" (track 2 on that maxi single) just an early fade of the 12" version?

Definitely not - there are multiple edits involved, and the first is right at the very beginning. On the English 45 version, the English LP version, and the Spanish 12" version (track 5 on PRCD 6891-2), the song starts off w/ a piano flourish, before Gloria's vocals chime in at the :06 mark. However, the 1994 Spanish 7" version (track 2 on PRCD 6891-2) chops off the :06 piano intro, and immediately starts w/ Gloria's vocals - it's a little jarring, actually. The Spanish 7" version is then otherwise identical to the Spanish 12" version up until the 3:07 mark (corresponding w/ the 3:13 mark on the 12"), where a second edit occurs. At this point, the 12" version goes into an extended instrumental break, while the 7" version goes into a shorter horn break w/ Gloria shrieking "Ohh!", before heading into some additional vocal verses, and wrapping up at 3:56. (There's at least one other edit during this last 49 seconds of the 7" as well.) Although I'm FAR from being the best here when it comes to determining mix differences, to my ears, it sounds like there are strictly edits involved, and therefore, the 1994 3:56 Spanish 7" version can most likely be created/extracted from the original 1979 7:51 Spanish 12" version...

And while investigating this for you, I discovered another interesting fact about this song: According to Pat's database, despite its appearance on OVER 100 U.S. CDs to date, the original 4:55-ish English LP version has NEVER been featured! And while the song's original 1978 parent album, Love Tracks, has been re-issued on CD twice in Japan over the years (1992 & 2008), according to Discogs, in both cases, those Japanese versions substituted the 8:00-ish 12" version of "I Will Survive" in place of the 4:55 original. Therefore, last year's expanded re-issue on the U.K. BBR label appears to be the only place you can currently obtain the LP version on CD(!) - so in addition to getting the 1979 Spanish 12" version, that's one more good reason to probably grab it (don't know if it's "brickwalled", though)...

Thanks for the info. Other than the missing piano intro on the 1994 Spanish 7" version, do the edits on this match up with the edits on the English-language 7" version (which was not a fade of the LP or 12" version, according to the database, which I just checked.)

Also, there is Linda Ronstadt's "Lago Azul" aka Blue Bayou
in Spanish. There was also a Spanish language version of
Hot's superb single, "Angel In Your Arms"

Okay, here we go: I've confirmed the existence of Spanish-language versions of the following. So far, they are only the ones that were issued in some form or another here in the U.S. However, I do intend to eventually add the foreign-only releases as well, once additional research proves that's the only way certain titles exist. This is still very much a work in progress, but I must thank cftp up front for his extensive lists (see the "Do That To Me One More Time" thread), and EdisonLite for launching this new thread during my absence over the last five weeks. (When I first started this project last Fall, I thought the list would be about 30-40 titles at most, so this has now officially grown much bigger than I'd initially anticipated!) For my own purposes, I'm limiting my listings to only the '70s & '80s (will probably eventually add the '90s as well), and while not sticking to just top 40 hits, I will draw the line at CHART hits. :-) They are organized by category, and then listed chronologically within that category. Dates given are all based on Pat's methodology of peak popularity, where applicable (as a few on the list below did miss the top 40) - songs may have actually been recorded & released the year prior. All 45s & 12" singles do exist as commercial copies w/ a B-side, not just as double-sided promos! Spanish wording for the titles is exactly as printed on the U.S. records; my research sometimes showed that import copies of the same recordings actually had different Spanish wording, as there is usually more than one way to translate English to Spanish. If the Spanish-language version is available on CD, all known U.S. CDs are listed (many not in Pat's database at this time); promo CD singles are only referenced if no known commercial CDs exist. If no known domestic CDs could be found, then I've listed at least one import as an option, where known. Picture sleeves & other unusual facts are all noted as well. I realize that at this time, this is essentially just a more detailed list of various titles that I (and other board members) have already mentioned, but hopefully other fans/collectors will find some good info here (okay, not that I think there are a lot of collectors of Andy Williams & Perry Como around here, but hey, "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story" and "And I Love You So" were BOTH top 40 hits!)...

The following were all issued on separate commercial U.S. 45s at the same time as their hit English counterparts:

1971 ANDY WILLIAMS - "Music from Across the Way" (Spanish version)/"(Where Do I Begin) Love Story" (Spanish version) (COLUMBIA 45533) (English versions = COLUMBIA 45531 & 45317, respectively)

1975 THE CAPTAIN & TENNILLE - "Por Amor Viviremos" ("Love Will Keep Us Together") (A&M 1715) (hit #49 BB/#57 CB in its own right!) (on one U.S. CD: Ultimate Collection on Hip-O 314520901 from 2001) (English version = A&M 1672) (also on duo's all-Spanish album Por Amor Viviremos)

1975 MORRIS ALBERT - "Dime" ("Feelings") (AUDIO LATINO 577) (label variations exist) (on at least one import CD: Purasangre: Carrera de Exitos 2 by V/A on Sony Music 507013 from 2002 in Chile) (English version = RCA VICTOR 10279) (also on his all-Spanish album After We've Left Each Other)

*Whew!* Well, that's 42 singles/albums fully researched on the above list - not as lengthy as cftp's (and w/ quite a bit of overlap), but hopefully it's detailed enough for those who wish to now hunt these Spanish-language versions down on either vinyl or CD... :-)

I also want to thank Pat for listening to us here, as I noticed he's since added listings for the Spanish-language versions of the Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together" and both CDs w/ Toni Basil's "Mickey", as well as a second CD featuring KC and the Sunshine Band's "Please Don't Go" to the on-line database. :-) Here are links to photos/listings (most on Discogs) of the additional U.S. CDs found in my list above, which will also need to be added to the database (some of which I know Pat already has):

PERRY COMO
ABBA(1)
ABBA(2)
ABBA(3)
CULTURE CLUB
GLORIA ESTEFAN(1)
GLORIA ESTEFAN(2)

I just obtained a US promo CD single of "Al Final del Camino" by Boyz II Men ("End Of The Road" in Spanish). It was only a penny on eBay, so I went for it.

CDP LAPRO500
1. Straight Single Edit (3:40)
2. Spoken Single Edit (3:56)
3. Radio Edit (5:50)

Time for some updates here... :-)

From the "Do That To Me One More Time" thread:

crapfromthepast wrote:
You'll want to pick up the CD Stars In Spanish, which includes "Let's Get Serious" and about 10 others. It used to go for $$$$, but should have come back down to a reasonable price.

Well, it took me a little over a year, but I just acquired the above CD. I'd definitely like to thank cftp for the tip, as prior to his post, I did not know this collection existed! Thought I'd go ahead and give the full scoop, for those who may be interested - and hopefully db purposes as well, if we're being completists... :-)

Yes, Stars in Spanish is actually a U.S. CD from 1995, on Polydor 314 525 734-2, although it's long out-of-print. It has 13 tracks, 11 of which were top 40 hits in their English form, and are shown below in bold (the Zucchero and Sting songs being the only exceptions). Here are the complete contents, which I've elected to list chronologically; dates are peak years as given in Pat's on-line db (where applicable), and all timings that I've given are ACTUAL (surprise - printed times in the front booklet are quite off for some!):

1971 SANTANA - "Oye Como Va" (5:06)*
1972 MOODY BLUES - "Noches de Seda" ("Nights in White Satin") (4:16)
1980 JERMAINE JACKSON - "Let's Get Serious" (3:35)
1981 THE POLICE - "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" (4:01)
1987 ZUCCHERO - "Senza Una Donna" (4:25)**
1987 SUZANNE VEGA - "Luka" (3:49)
1987 STING - "Fragilidad" ("Fragile") (3:50)***
1990 JANET JACKSON - "Vuelve a Mi" ("Come Back to Me") (5:17)
1991 SCORPIONS - "Viento de Cambio" ("Wind of Change") (5:09)
1991 BRYAN ADAMS - "Todo Lo Que Hago Lo Hago Por Ti" ("[Everything I Do] I Do it for You") (4:06)
1993 BON JOVI - "Cama de Rosas" ("Bed of Roses") (5:04)
1995 4 P.M. (FOR POSITIVE MUSIC) - "Sukiyaki" (2:37)
1995 BOYZ II MEN - "No Dejemos Que Muera el Amor" ("Water Runs Dry") (3:19)

*live version from 1993's Sacred Fire: Live in South America album - NOT a studio recording from original year of release (1971)
**first recorded solo in 1987; became an A/C hit in 1991 when re-recorded as a duet w/ Paul Young, but failed to crack the pop charts
***cut from 1987's ...Nothing Like the Sun album; Spanish-language version featured on 1988's ...Nada Como el Sol: Selecciones Especiales en Espanol y Portugues EP

W/ only two or three exceptions, I'd never heard most of these versions before. Personally, I was most anxious to hear "Let's Get Serious", since it's a classic jam from my childhood, and it's great to have "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" as well, as it's from the same era. I also have to say how impressed I was w/ Justin Hayward on "Nights in White Satin" - w/ the song being just as old as I am (going back to the original release), it's definitely on the fringe of the earliest stuff that I collect, but there's no question it's classic, in English or Spanish!

Page for the CD on Discogs: V/A - "Stars in Spanish" (U.S. CD) Now, if another label would just step up and give us another volume (or two), covering this same period... :-)

Oh, and I've also updated the info in my list from 13 May 2014 above, to reflect the availability of the songs "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" and "Luka" on U.S. CD, thanks to this collection (still haven't detailed much of the other songs yet)...

I also just acquired the U.S. CD of Sting's ...Nada Como el Sol: Selecciones Especiales en Espanol y Portugues. As detailed in my post from 13 May 2014 above, it's a five-song EP from 1988, on A&M CD 3295. It's now out-of-print, but is still quite easy to find, and thus can be had very cheap. It includes the Spanish-language version of "We'll Be Together", which is track 3 ("Si Estamos Juntos"). If Pat wishes to add it immediately, I can report that it has an actual time of (4:16). Will post this info in the proper "We'll Be Together" thread as well...

I also noticed that the U.S. CD of David Lee Roth's Sonrisa Salvaje is apparently back in print, so I ordered one, and it just arrived a few days ago. As detailed in my post from 13 May 2014 above, it's a 2007 re-issue of his Spanish-language album from 1986, on Friday Music FRM-1053, although I noticed that my copy has an "RE-1" in the matrix no. in the center ring. It includes the Spanish-language version of "Yankee Rose", which is track 1. If Pat wishes to add it immediately, I can report that it has an actual time of (3:45). Will post this info in the proper "Yankee Rose" thread as well...

Oh, and while they both missed the top 40, Sonrisa Salvaje also features Spanish-language versions of DLR's two follow-ups: "Goin' Crazy!" ("Loco del Calor!"), which is track 5, and has an actual time of (3:06), as well as "That's Life" ("Asi es la Vida"), which is track 10, and has an actual time of (2:44)...

EdisonLite noted this one in his initial list when he launched this thread - which was new to me at the time - but now I have it as well, and can share additional details. It's regarding Glenn Medeiros' Spanish-language version of his 1987 hit, "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You"...

When his self-titled debut album was released that year, the original pressings in ALL THREE formats (i.e., vinyl LP, cassette, & CD) featured only nine tracks, and only the hit English version of "NGCMLFY". (Bought the cassette myself at the time.) The CD edition was on Amherst AMH 93313, and the front cover pictured Medeiros standing on some steps w/ pink railings. Pat does already show this original in the on-line db...

By 1990, Medeiros had signed w/ a major label, and they also elected to self-title his new album that year, on MCA 6399. Of course, that 1990 album ended up doing even better, landing him two additional top 40 hits, the former going all the way to #1: "She Ain't Worth It" (ftg. Bobby Brown) and "All I'm Missing is You" (ftg. Ray Parker, Jr.)...

In response to that album's success, Amherst went back and re-issued the 1987 album by the end of 1990, but made three major changes in the process: 1) The front cover art was now a close-up of Medeiros in a white shirt w/ his hand under his chin, 2) They re-titled it after its hit, Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You (to avoid confusion w/ MCA 6399), and 3) They added two bonus tracks, which were Spanish-language versions of "NGCMLFY" and "You're My Woman, You're My Lady" ("Si Me Faltas"), for a total of 11. The CD edition of this re-issue is on Amherst AMH 94401, and is still in print to this day. It's the version I just obtained, and while Pat DOES currently show the English version in the on-line db (which tells me he has this CD already), he neglects to list the Spanish-language version as well. It's track 5 ("Nada Cambiara Mi Amor Por Ti"), and I can report that it has an actual time of (4:07). Will post this info in the proper "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You" thread as well...

Oh, and attn: crapfromthepast. From the Wilson Phillips - "You're In Love" thread:

crapfromthepast wrote:
(Foreign language re-recordings are my specialty on the radio show. There's nothing like a little Pointer Sisters in Spanish ("He's So Shy") or Chicago in Japanese ("Questions 67 and 68") to wake you up!)

That being the case, while researching this song by Mr. Medeiros, I made an additional discovery, which you may want to track down (if you don't have it already). As a Hawaiian, he actually recorded a Japanese-language version of "NGCMLFY" as well! While it hasn't yet appeared on any U.S. CDs, it's included on the later Japanese versions of his 1987 s/t debut. Page on Discogs: GLENN MEDEIROS - "Glenn Medeiros" (Japanese CD) (1987) And here's a used copy currently listed on eBay: GLENN MEDEIROS - "Glenn Medeiros" (Japanese CD) (1987) I also found it posted on YouTube, which was the first time I'd ever heard it: GLENN MEDEIROS - "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love for You" (Japanese-language version) (3:55)

What about the ultimate,hits that were US hits recorded in Spanish (though the English language translation appears on side B)


Mocedades-"Eres Tu", 1974.
(B side, "Touch The Wind")

Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66 original version, 1966,
remake with Fergie and her Black Eyed Peas 200?
"Masque Ne Nada".

Then there's more to the point, the 1975 Morris Albert hit "Feelings" re-done as "Dime".

I also remember that Capt.and Tennille hit from the same year as mentioned, "Love will Keep us together"(Spanish title?)

Now, if another label would just step up and give us another volume (or two), covering this same period...

Well, thanks to some additional research as well as patience, it seems I sorta got my wish. :-) In the last few months, I've discovered at least TWO additional V/A CD compilations devoted entirely to Spanish-language versions of hits! Both consist of a combination of recordings by the original artist that had the hit English-language version in the U.S., as well as covers by other acts. However, both are imports, so unlike Polydor 314 525 734-2 (described in detail above in my previous post), they're ineligible for inclusion in Pat's on-line db. I've recently acquired copies of both CDs, and thought I'd go ahead and post full details here, for others who may also be interested - especially since BOTH include some versions by the original artists that have NOT been previously mentioned in either this thread or the one for "Do That To Me One More Time"!

Interestingly, the first one is from Mexico, and also titled Stars in Spanish, but is NOT to be confused w/ the previously-discussed U.S. release of the same name on Polydor 314 525 734-2 (although they do actually share three of the same songs). It's on SGB Records CDID 7378, from 2007, and features 19 tracks. The back insert features the "HECHO EN MEXICO" ("MADE IN MEXICO") logo, but also states "Printed in USA" in the fine print, as well as on the CD itself; the label (SGB Records) has a Los Angeles address, and claims to be manufactured & distributed by UMVD. (And indeed, most of the recordings by the original acts on this CD are ones on labels that are currently under the Universal umbrella.) However, it appears this may very well be a "gray area" CD...

It features the following eight top 40 hits sung in Spanish by the ORIGINAL artists - and like before, I've chosen to list them chronologically, w/ the dates being the peak years as given in Pat's on-line db, and the timings being ACTUAL:

1969 RENE & RENE - "Lo Mucho Que Te Quiero" ("The More I Love You") (2:45) (okay, this one's actually in Spanglish, and WAS the hit version in the U.S.)
1978 KANSAS - "Polvo en el Viento" ("Dust in the Wind") (3:31)
1987 CHRIS DeBURGH - "La Dama de Ayer" ("The Lady in Red") (4:02) (artist's name spelled "Chris De Burge" on CD inserts)
1990 ROXETTE - "Puede Ser Amor" ("It Must Have Been Love") (3:53) (artist's name spelled "Rossette" on CD inserts)
1991 SCORPIONS - "Vientos de Cambio" ("Wind of Change") (5:06)
1991 BRYAN ADAMS - "Todo Lo Que Hago es Por Ti" ("[Everything I Do] I Do it for You") (4:05)
1993 BON JOVI - "Cama de Rosas" ("Bed of Roses") (5:03)
1995 BON JOVI - "Como Yo Nadie Te Ha Amado" ("This Ain't a Love Song") (4:57)

It also includes this song sung in Spanish by a U.S. hit-making act, although the English version was not a top 40 hit by this artist:

JOSE FELICIANO - "Te Esperare" ("Right Here Waiting") (4:21) (cover of 1989 hit by Richard Marx)

"Wind of Change", "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You", and "Bed of Roses" are the three that also appear on the U.S. CD of the same name from Polydor, and all w/ nearly identical timings. However, Spanish-language versions of both "The Lady in Red" by Chris DeBurgh and "This Ain't a Love Song" by Bon Jovi have NOT been mentioned here on Pat's chat board before, and I admit that I didn't know about either of those myself before picking up this CD! If you've never heard them before, here they are on YouTube: CHRIS DeBURGH - "The Lady in Red" (Spanish-language version) (3:09) BON JOVI - "This Ain't a Love Song" (Spanish-language version) (5:06) Although it was released on a vinyl 45 (w/ a picture sleeve) in Spain, I have yet to find any evidence that the Spanish-language version of the Chris DeBurgh song was issued here in the U.S. in any form. Page for the Spanish 45 on Discogs, complete w/ photos: CHRIS DeBURGH - "La Dama de Ayer" (Spanish 45) The Bon Jovi song, on the other hand, was indeed issued as a two-track promo CD single in the U.S. on Mercury CDP 1462. Page on Discogs (although it erroneously states that it's from Spain), complete w/ photos: BON JOVI - "Como Yo Nadie Te Ha Amado" (U.S. promo CD single)

Nine of the 10 remaining songs on the CD are covers of other huge U.S. hits from the '60s through '90s sung in Spanish by no-name acts, such as "Yesterday" (1965), "Love Hurts" (1976), "Total Eclipse of the Heart" (1983), and "I Will Always Love You" (1993), among others; the last is a Megamix of quite a few of the songs found on the disc. Stars in Spanish is evidently still in print, albeit pretty tough to find. Here's a recent listing on eBay, w/ photos: V/A - "Stars in Spanish" (Mexican CD)

The other CD is from Spain, and titled Cantando en Espanol (Sung in Spanish). It's on EMI PE 0-2, from 1992, and features 18 tracks. (Most of the recordings are indeed by EMI/Capitol acts.) And yes, this one is most definitely legit (i.e., NOT a "gray area" CD)...

It features the following four top 40 hits sung in Spanish by the ORIGINAL artists - and again, this is a chronological listing, w/ the dates being the peak years as given in Pat's on-line db, and the timings being ACTUAL:

1959 RITCHIE VALENS - "La Bamba" (2:02) (okay, the hit in the U.S. WAS this all-Spanish version)
1969 OLIVER - "Jean" (3:15)
1980 KIM CARNES - "Mas Amor" ("More Love") (3:30)
1981 KOOL & THE GANG - "Celebremos" ("Celebration") (5:13)

It also includes these six songs sung in Spanish by various U.S. hit-making acts, although the English versions were not top 40 hits - or if they were, they were by other artists:

MATT MONRO - "Alguien Canto" ("The Music Played") (3:18)
BOBBIE GENTRY - "No Me Quiero en Amorar" ("I'll Never Fall in Love Again") (2:47) (cover of 1970 hit by Dionne Warwick)
EYDIE GORME - "Dime" ("Feelings") (3:43) (cover of 1975 hit by Morris Albert, who also recorded it in Spanish)
ASTRUD GILBERTO - "Solo el Fin" ("For All We Know") (3:14) (cover of 1971 hit by the Carpenters)
CONNIE FRANCIS - "Siboney" (2:51)
CHRIS MONTEZ - "No, No, No" (2:14)

The Spanish-language versions of both "Jean" by Oliver and "More Love" by Kim Carnes have yet to appear on a U.S. CD; in fact, the existence of the former has never even been mentioned previously here on Pat's chat board. So if you've never heard it before, I found a single posting of it on YouTube: OLIVER - "Jean" (Spanish-language version) (3:18) It was issued on a vinyl 45 (w/ picture sleeve) in Spain, but I've yet to uncover any evidence that it was ever released here in the U.S., in any form. In fact, that same Spanish 45 actually featured "Buenos Dias Brillo de Estrellas" on the flip side - i.e., the Spanish-language version of his other big 1969 hit, "Good Morning Starshine". Again, on YouTube: OLIVER - "Good Morning Starshine" (Spanish-language version) (3:47) Page for the Spanish 45 on Discogs, complete w/ photos: OLIVER - "Jean"/"Buenos Dias Brillo de Estrellas" (Spanish 45)

The eight remaining songs on the CD are all by artists that I've admittedly never heard of, and do not recognize as covers. Cantando en Espanol is long out-of-print, and currently goes for at least $20-$30 used, if you can find it. Page on Discogs, w/ photos: V/A - "Cantando en Espanol" (Spanish CD)

Once again, I've also updated the info in my list from 13 May 2014 above, to reflect the availability of "More Love" ("Mas Amor") on CD...

From the "Do That To Me One More Time" thread:

EdisonLite wrote:
And wow, if [that] Kim Carnes title exists on any import CDs, please report back!

Okay, now done - since it turns out it's existed on an import CD since at least 1992 (24 years)! I've always been a huge fan of KC (saw her in concert back in the late '80s), and her hit cover of "More Love" is among my top two or three favorite songs of hers; it was fascinating to hear that Spanish-language version for the first time just a few weeks ago (never owned the vinyl 45, like you). But I did you even one better - er, make that TWO. :-) I was able to obtain second copies of BOTH import CDs that I just described above, and on Friday, I mailed you a package w/ those actual CDs, so look for it in your mailbox either tomorrow (Monday) or Tuesday. Hope you enjoy them. Cheers, EdisonLite!

WOW! Thanks so much, Gregg!!! That is super nice of you!! It was just a few years ago that I bought the Spanish-language version of Kim Carnes' "More Love" (also one of my favorites) on 45 - and I hadn't cleaned it up yet. So it's rather ironic to know it's been on CD for at least 24 years!! And a legit CD, no less! Well, thanks again Gregg! I really appreciate it :)
