Your Big & Wild Day!



Notes: The Trypes and Yung Wu were both projects related to The Feelies, as you can certainly divine from the songs, the latter a cover of Phil Manzanera's Big Day (which features production and vocal duties handled by Brian Eno).  Chunky, Novi & Ernie was an early Laurie Wood band - production handled by Mr. John Cale.  German opera singer and film actress Gerty Molzen turned in this cover of Lou Reed's Walk on the Wild Side in 1985, at age 80 and assisted by Gerd Plez of German new-wave group Hong Kong Syndicate (their catalogue is a difficult slog with a few interesting highlights, I assure you).  She performed it on Late Night with David Letterman in 1986.
