ANITA HEGERLAND - "All The Way" (1983 Norway LP)
[Anita Hegerland - All The Way - Norway LP] Includes Anita's version of "What's A Matter Baby"

Norwegian singer Anita Hegerland covered "What's A Matter Baby" for her 1983 album "All The Way". Her version is very similar to Ellen's version, so this probably qualifies as an Ellen Foley cover version!
TRIVIA ALERT! A few years later Anita married Mike Oldfield and she can be heard on his albums "Islands" and "Earth Moving".

KIKI DEE - "How Glad I Am"
[KIKI DEE - How Glad I Am - Germany] Kiki Dee has recorded two versions of "How Glad I Am"

Kiki Dee first recorded "(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am" in 1964 for the UK market. Although her original version was unsuccessful, she re-recorded the song in 1975 as a bluesy up-tempo rocker more simply titled "How Glad I Am". Credited to the Kiki Dee Band, and produced by Gus Dudgeon it was released as the follow-up single to their hit "I've Got the Music in Me", and it reached #33 in the UK and #74 in the US. The 1975 version was also a Top 20 hit in Holland and Belgium.

Kiki Dee's 1964 version has since been included on several compilations, the latest being "I'M Kiki Dee - The Fontana Years 1963-1968" released by RPM in 2011. The Kiki Dee Band version from 1975 was one of four bonus tracks added to EMI's 2008 re-issue of their 1974 album "I've Got the Music In Me". The German 1975 picture sleeve single is pictured left (Rocket 13932 AT).
