Amy S. They really sound like they're having a ball letting their creativity run wild here. Sometimes when I listen to it I just marvel and laugh at how brilliant this album is. The variety of collaborating artists makes for an eclectic sound indeed. (Seriously, Dress You Up sounds NOTHING like H&S - in a really good way.) At the same time H&S are definitely the glue that holds this thing together, meaning the overall sound is not only eclectic, but solid and cohesive. Favorite track: Dress You Up.

Wind in the Willows It's very hard to choose a favourite, as these cover versions are all quite brilliant. And ingenious. And brilliant. "Vol. 1" suggests there will be more - which is good! Favorite track: Keep the Customer Satisfied.

Richard Harrison (@mr_spoon) When H&S can create songs as good as these (with a video) in one day...Lady Gaga can suck her own balls. Favorite track: Won't Back Down.
Neil Sumner

Neil Sumner I absolutely love this album. Hard to pick a favourite...."Addicted to love"- THE definitive version (sorry Robert). "Ghostbusters" - try not to smile when you play it, I dare you . "I'd do it all again" - wow, goosebumps every time. She Makes War on gritty double bass...oh, just buy it.

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down You could stand me up at the gates of hell But I won't back down Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out Hey I will stand my ground And I won't back down Well I know what's right, I got just one life In a world that keeps on pushin' me around But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down Hey baby there ain't no easy way out Hey I will stand my ground And I won't back down

I hear a lot of stories I suppose they could be true All about love and what it can do to you Highest risk of striking out The risk of getting hurt And still I have so much to learn Well, I know 'Cause I think about it all the time I know That real love has quite a price And a good heart These days, is hard to find (A good heart) True love, the lasting kind A good heart These days, is hard to find So please be gentle with this heart of mine My expectations may be high I blamed it on my youth Soon enough I'll learned the painful truth I'll face it like a fighter Then boast of how I've grown Anything is better Than being alone Well, I know 'Cause I learn a little every day I know 'Cause I listen when the experts say That a good heart These days, is hard to find (A good heart) True love, the lasting kind A good heart These days, is hard to find So please be gentle with this heart of mine As I look back On all my childhood dreams My ideas of love weren't As foolish as they seemed If I don't start looking now I'll be left behind And a good heart these days It's hard to find Well, I know It's a dream I'm willing to defend I know It will all be worth it in the end And a good heart These days, is hard to find (A good heart) True love, the lasting kind A good heart These days, is hard to find So please be gentle with this heart of mine And a good heart These days, is hard to find (A good heart) True love, the lasting kind A good heart These days, is hard to find So please be gentle with this heart With this heart of mine A good heart, a good heart A good heart, a good heart A good heart, a good heart A good heart

Gee but it's great to be back home Home is where I want to be. I've been on the road so long my friend, And if you came along I know you couldn't disagree. It's the same old story everywhere I go, I get slandered, libeled, I hear words I never heard in the Bible And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine Two steps away from the county line Just trying to keep my customers satisfied, Satisfied. Deputy Sheriff said to me Tell me what you come here for, boy. You better get your bags and flee. You're in trouble boy, and now you're heading into more. It's the same old story everywhere I go, I get slandered, libeled, I hear words I never heard in the Bible And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine Two steps away from the county line Just trying to keep my customers satisfied, Satisfied.

Golden brown texture like sun Lays me down with my mind she runs Throughout the night No need to fight Never a frown with golden brown Every time just like the last On her ship tied to the mast To distant lands Takes both my hands Never a frown with golden brown Golden brown finer temptress Through the ages she's heading west From far away Stays for a day Never a frown with golden brown Never a frown With golden brown Never a frown With golden brown

The girl's a fool She broke the rule She hurt him hard This time you will break down She's lost his trust And so she must All is lost The system has broke down Romance has broke down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broke down She plays it hard She plays it tough But that's enough The love is over She's broke his heart and that is rough But in the end you'll soon recover The romance is over This boy is crack'in up This boy has broken down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broke down I've been spending my money In the old town It's not the same honey When you're not around I've been spending my time In the old town I sure miss you honey Now you're not around Now you're not around This old town This boy is crack'in up This boy has broken down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broke down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broken down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broke down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broken down This boy is crack'in up This boy has broke down

Ooh, you’re searching for something I know, won’t make you happy Ooh, you’re thirsting for something I know, won’t make you happy Ooh, you did it all again, you broke another skein It’s hard to believe this time, hard to believe That my heart, my heart’s an open door You got all you came for, baby So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride’s worth Is bigger than the pain you got for it hurts And out runs all of the sadness It’s terrifying, life, through the darkness And I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again You try sometimes but it won’t stop You got my heart and my head’s lost, ooh yeah I’ve been burning down these candles for love, for love So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride Ooh, someone to love, mm, someone to love Someone to love Ooh, you’re searching for something I know, won’t make you happy Ooh

about

A fan-chosen cover version, recorded in collaboration with another musical artist and a video artist - made and released within a day. You can see the videos, read the live-blogs, view the "directors' commentary" and find out much more at www.hopeandsocial.co.uk/crypt-covers/ - but this is the album. Hope you love it.

NB - Please note that the although everything we do is normally on a Pay What You Want basis, for Crypt Covers Vol. 1, to ensure that the original writers get paid, we have to set a minimum cost for the download.

We're also paying all our collaborators on a straight profit split on this - so the pie is getting divided 30 ways (10x guest artist, 10x videographers, 10x H&S), so if you can drop a few extra quid in the pot, that'll go towards paying us and our musical and videographic collaborators ... plus we shelled out a grand on food for the bands who came to visit... and we've worked - admittedly it's not like working down th'pit like, but work nevertheless, long days. So if you can, dig deep and pay what you think it's worth.

Thankin' yoooou!

H&S

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
