Tribute To Blondie - "Cleopatra Records" (released May 20, 2001)

Lanny Cordola asked me to co-produce a track with him for the project. We brought in Cherie Currie from "The Runaways" (remember them, the all girl group of the late 70's and early 80's that had Lita Ford and Joan Jett on guitar) to do a a re-make of a song called "For Your Eyes Only". Originally, Blondie recorded the song and submitted it for the James Bond film of the same name. The Bond people went with the Shena Easton track instead. Lanny heard something in this track which could really bring a new twist to it. Our version is somewhere between the band "Mono, Sneaker Pimps and Bjork". Cherie did a very cool 40's German cabaret vocal and the backing music is very trippy. Very different for Cherie indeed!
