VOR 45 JAHREN KAM WELTWEITER SIEGESZUG VON BONEY M. INS ROLLEN
- Oct 27, 2021
45 years ago, the hype began around Frank Farian's invention called Boney M. Formed in 1975, "Daddy Cool" hit the stores in May 1976. But it wasn't until the band made a few TV appearances in September that the single and debut album, TAKE THE HEAT OFF ME, went through the roof. Boney M. became one of the most successful groups from Germany with 150 million records sold. In addition to some undisputedly excellent disco songs, the quartet excelled with cover versions of great hits from the 60s and 70s, which were interpreted in different quality. Here's a selection: "Sunny" Bobby Hebb, "No Woman No Cry" Bob Marley, "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" CCR, "Still I'm Sad" Yardbirds, "Painter Man" The Creation, "Heart Of Gold" Neil Young, "Hold On, I'm Coming" Sam & Dave, "Two Of Us" The Beatles ... Finally, there is the song "Future World", which is practically a cover version of Omega's "Tízezer lépés", but this was not noted.
