Reutilisation — Pt. 2

In the early 1960s there were a number of record releases for which existing arrangements or backing tracks were reused. In most cases, the original recording featured a vocalist, while the second one featured an instrumentalist.

In some cases, even entire albums were compiled from various existing arrangements or backing tracks, such as Dó-Ré-Mi-Fafá by Fafá Lemos and both albums by Héctor Costita under his pseudonym Don Júnior.

A closer look reveals that in each case both recordings were released by the same label or one of its subsidiaries, which clearly indicates that they just wanted to cut production costs or to benefit from popular versions a second time.

However, the results are usually very worth listening to. Here is the second selection.
