Amy Winehouse - The Ska EP

Amy Winehouse - The Ska EP

Hello. It's Wednesday, July 21st, 2021. Hope your day is going well.

A couple days ago I hinted there was a 2008 EP I just discovered last week. Amy Winehouse - The Ska EP. The EP contains covers from songs by Toots & The Maytals, The Specials, The Skatalites and Sam Cooke. It's always interesting to see artists mesh w different genres you don't usually familiarize w/ them.

I was doing a little homework after I listened to the EP and apparently Winehouse was a big fan of Ska music in general. You go back through some of her discography and you easily pick up on some of the ska/reggae vibes in a lot of her songs. These being just two examples.

Amazing voice. Amazing talent.

Gone far too soon.
