*****
...sehr gut...
****
nett
****
Einer der besseren Boney M. Songs, Doppel-A-Seite mit "I See A Boat On The River". Von dem Song gab es zwei Versionen auf Single, eine mit E-Gitarren-Solo und eine mit Synthy-Solo ... reine Glückssache, welche Single man erwischt hat.
**
Völlig überflüssige Neuaufnahme des Smoke Klassikers.
****
▒ Schön und ganz Nett dieser B-Side (Eigentlich dobbel A: "I See A Boat On The River") von: "Boney M.", aus Mai 1980 !!! Stand 8 wochen (Platz # 7) in die NL Top 40 ☺!!!

@09-10-2018: ▒ "Roberto Alfonso (Bobby) Farrell" (☼ 6 oktober 1949 – † 30 december 2010) ☺!!!

ganz passabel
****
... nett ...
****
wieder ein 60er remake, diesmal aber ganz gut..
*****
sehr gut
****
Interesant @ Wutschel mit dem zwei Versionen auf Single !
Habe das nicht gewuscht !
B-seite zu "I See A Boat On The River"......war glaube ich nur in GB ein single Hit !
****
Ist nett anzuhören, mehr nicht.
**
schwach
*****
Für mich war diese Seite der ersten Boney M. Single der 80er Jahre viel besser als die schlagerhafte "Boat On The River". Ihre Version von "My Friend Jack" brachte einen neuen Boney M. Sound mit einem tollen Rhythmus und einzigartigen Sound und besonders die 8:28 Maxi-Version ist fabelhaft. In England, wo man "My Friend Jack" als die A-Seite hatte, floppte leider die Single mit einem enttäuschenden Platz #57 in den Charts.
****
diesmal ganz nett gemachte cover-version
****
es knallt etwas viel in dem song aber das war der stil der zeit...ganz ordentlich gemacht
***
Regular.
****
4+, gefällt mir ganz gut! Und auch die 12" Version ist gelungen.
******
Maxi-version is Perfect !
****
durchschnittliche Nummer von Boney M. - kommt natürlich nicht an ihre grössten Hits heran - 3.75...damit 1980 auf #6 in Norwegen...
*****
... Jaja, nicht schlecht gemacht, dieses Cover.
***
Tendenz: langweilig.
****
Guter Sound ... gar keine Melodie. Sehr knappe Vier. 4-
****
Überraschend gelungenes Cover.
*
überraschend schlecht
****
buono
****
Gelungen; Boney M. konnte immer glänzen. Auch Coverversionen konnte die bunte wie sympathische und dazu noch äußerst erfolgreiche Kult-Gruppe aus dem Frank-Farian-Stall stets gut präsentieren!
****
Vrij leuk gebrachte cover uit 1980.
*****
Tolle flotte Nummer, je lauter desto besser.
****
J'aime cette interpretation.
****
Wederom een erg leuk b-kantje
****
Kannte diese Single garnicht (kenne auch das Originale nicht), aber sie gefällt mir ehrlich gesagt ganz gut! Und schon wieder ein Hit in Finnland : #5!

Frank Farian hat viele Songs, die ihm gefielen für Boney M rausgesucht, so auch diesen. Das passt doch.
****
kan er prima mee door
*****
Diese aufbereitete Boney M.-Version steht dem Original in nichts nach und ist sehr gut gemacht. Wieder ein sehr guter Job von Frank Farian.
***
Für Boney M Verhältnisse eher sehr mässig.
***
Aardig
