Senor Coconut

I don't know if I've written about this before, but one of my favorite albums of all time is "Senor Coconut y Su Conjunto: El Baile Aleman". Why? On it, they do Merengue and Cha-Cha-Cha versions of Kraftwerk songs. Mind you, you probably have to be a Kraftwerk fan to truly appreciate this. However, the "Coconut" version of "Autobahn" is priceless for the opening alone. In the original, you hear a car start, in "Coconut's" version, you hear a car not turning over, playing on all the stereotypes and suceeding!

It's probably hard to find, but check out Ebay or something. I don't know. I got mine at Tower and you know where they are now...

Senor Coconut are indeed ace. Also a lot of fun live.

I was less impressed with the follow-up album, Yellow Fever (Yellow Magic Orchestra covers) - big guest list and weird spoken bits between tracks. About half of the proper musical bits were really good, but overall it lacked the consistency of the Kraftwerk album.
