INSTRUMENTAL TAKEOVER The Low-Fi Drifters play 'Shadowing The Boss', 'Triple Cross', 'Johnny Remember Me' and a dozen other 'Big Sound STEREO' guitar-instrumentals. Limited Deluxe-Edition: The first edition of the CD is a limited deluxe-edition. Each copy has it's own unique serial number. About the tracks: JOHNNY REMEMBER ME 'When the mist is a-rising and the rain is falling....'. Originally recorded by John Leyton in the early 60's. We loved the idea of doing an instrumental version of this great pop-song. As far as we know, there have been lots of covers, but never an instrumental version. Shadowing the Boss, Escape Chamber Written and recorded for 'Instrumental Takeover', inspired by detective stories and soundtracks of spy-movies. The title 'Escape Chamber' was taken from the James Bond adventure 'The Spy who loved me'. Remember the finale? While the underwater city 'Atlantis' is about to blow up, Bond and Major Amasova find their way out in Strombergs 'Escape Chamber'. Triple Cross Originally sung by Tony Allan as title track of the film 'Triple Cross', the story of a double-agent during world war 2 played by Christopher Plummer, also starring Gerd Froebe, Yul Brynner, Claudine Auger and Romy Schneider. The song has also been covered by the great Tom Jones in 1966 and approx. 40 years later we found it's time for an instrumental version of it. Get off the Road Written by Herschell Gordon Lewis, performed by 'The Faded Blue' in the cult movie 'She-Devils on Wheels', the story of an all-female motorcycle gang called 'The Maneaters'. The engine roaring on the Low-Fi Drifters version is a Ferrari 512S of 1970. Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son It is probably the most know track on 'Instrumental Takeover'. In 1965 France Gall won the the Grand Prix Eurovision, singing this song, written by the great Serge Gainsbourg. My world is empty without you Of course we all remember Diana Ross and the Supremes. Somewhere in the mid-sixties they recorded 'my world is empty without you', written by Holland, Dozier, Holland. I believe the song never reached #1 in the charts, but it reached number 1 in my heart. Some Velvet Morning Originally performed by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, recorded and produced by Billy Strange. Hang 'em High I believe it was Clint Eastwood playing the leading role in the Western 'Hang 'em High'. Dominic Frontiere composed the title track and conducted the orchestra. A little later, Booker T. and the MG's recorded a very interesting cover-version, released on Stax Records.
