The week may be over, but the weekend has just begun and to start it is yet another remix for this week's featured artist Shakatak. On the original album front cover for Drivin' Hard all we have to show for the driving is a freeway bridge. On the remix we find a babe who is driving hard, in fact so hard, that her nipples have gone hard. It must be quite hard for her to keep driving like that. Compass!
Ending the week of our Shakatak remixes, we bring you the cover of Invitations, both the single and album of the same name. On the original artwork we find a babe wearing a slightly see-through dress standing on a misty lake. That could be classified as inviting. On the remix we find a babe in a very see-through swimsuit resting by the ocean. Is she more inviting or less? That's for you to decide. Tempting!

As we continue our short series of remixes of cover artwork by Shakatak, we fall across Streetwalkin'. On the original single we find a neon drawing of a babe walkin' down a street, so a big thumbs-up to the artist for depicting the nature of the song on the cover. On the remix little has changed, except that instead of a drawing we find a real-life babe doing some streetwalkin' of her own, and she seems to have lost her skirt. Road!
The next in our short series of remixes of jazz funkers Shakatak. Today it is the turn of Dark Is The Night (do the band have some fixation with things that happen after dark?) On the original cover artwork for the song, we find a dark alleyway with what appears to be an entrance to a club with the band's name above it. On the remix, someone has turned up to attend the club but seems to be undressing in the street. Perhaps that's the dress code? Doorman!
Time for a short run of remixes for Shakatak, starting with their song Night Birds. On the original cover of the single (from the album of the same name) we find a couple of birds flying over an icy landscape at night though they appear to be pterodactyls. On the remix we find a couple of different birds flying over an equally chilly looking landscape, and again at night. No dinosaurs here though. Launch!
Another remix for Creedence Clearwater Revival, this time for their single Down On The Corner. On the original front cover artwork for the song, we find the band members peering out at us. On the remix we find a babe standing or leaning in the corner of a room. Whether she is down we can't tell, but she doesn't look that comfortable with nothing but a collar and some nipple clamps to keep her warm, so perhaps she is a little down after all. Chain!
We wonder what Wayne Wonder was wondering about when he put together the original front cover artwork for his single Bounce Along. If he had selected the image on the remix, we would have know where his head was, or at least where he would wish it to be as we find a busty babe who almost certainly bounces along when she walks, especially if she has forgotten to wear a bra. Wonderful!
You know that it's going to be a lovely day when Ray Charles sings to us about That Lucky Old Sun. On the original single front cover artwork we find Mr Charles doing the singing, but why is the sun so lucky? The remix helps answer this question as we find a smiling babe in a grass skirt and a captain's beret, but whose bikini top seems to have gone amiss, and who the sun has clearly taken a shine to. Wink!
