UB40 Topped UK Singles Chart With NEIL DIAMOND Song ‘RED RED WINE’ 36 Years Ago…

Knockouts from the past

15 October 2019

Band:UB40
Song: Red Red Wine
Album: Labour Of Love – released in 1983
Note 1: Smart move to cover this 1967 Neil Diamond song.
Top-notch tune, lovely lazy feel and tasty swagger
Note 2: UB40 taught that the original version was by Jamaican
singer Tony Tribe who covered Diamond’s song in 1969
Note 3: UB40 topped the UK Charts 36 years ago, 15 October 1986

Here’s the UB 40 cover, c’mon, you know the words…

The 1969 ska/reggae Tony Tribe take…

And here’s a smooth original 2008 live version
at Glastonbury by NEIL DIAMOND himself…
