Hey Lady M: A lot of Motown songs have also been done over & over again.....by OTHER Motown artists!!!! It was a strange phenomenom :-)

Spyder: HMMMM...now that you mention it, I recall a certain gentleman singing Stand By Me. It seems like this gentleman did a damn good impersonation of Chuck Jackson, Eddie K & others!!!! OH GOLLY...I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU!!!!! Spyder, if anyone had told me that I'd be typing this to you, I'd have said that they were crazy!! It's a honor, that was definitely one of my favorites. I'm not worthy...... :-)

Err...aah...Re Re: About Skylark.....we REALLLLLY need to talk about that. You mean that you didn't love Mr Wilsons' vocals??? They didn't slay you?? :-)

Medusa: How are ya there :-) I think that all the choices are great. I really loved Aretha's Until You Come Back To Me!!! The only question I have is how in the world did Puffy & Kanye miss sampling those cuts?

Lady M: Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes did the original version of I Miss You

How about the following:

You'll Never Get To Heaven - Dionne Warwick & The Stylistics......AND Puffy

You Are Everything - The Stylistics, Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye, Roberta Flack, Eloise Laws & Special Generation....AND Puffy

A Change Gonna Come - Sam Cooke & Otis Redding (I think that Solomon Burke did it as well)...AND Puffy

Stop, Look, Listen - The Stylistics, New Birth, Johnny Mathis & Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye.....AND Puffy

She's Gone - Hall & Oates & Tavares....AND Puffy!

Please Mr Postman - The Marvellettes, The Carpenters & Gentle Persuasion.....Puffy didn't sample this one.....Kanye West did :-)

And my all-time favorite....They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa! - Napoleon XIV & Juice.....AND Puffy - Special Y2K Remix :-)

Spyder, that was John Lennon who recorded Stand by Me in '75.
Add Roger Troutman to the 'Grapevine list
BTW, McCartney's Yesterday has been remade by well over 100 artists. It might still hold the record for the all time most "covered" song.

Right you are, Bobby. I missed typing in an extra zero on my original post. I've since checked the Guinness site and the number they use is 1600 different versions recorded between 1965 and 1986.

Hello Submarine again!

Hi, Soul Sister,

How i can have forget Billy "Sitting In The Park" Stewart's Summer Time!
Also, i got another good vocal "cover" of Summertime by a duo (something as Jesus & Mary Chain...?). I don't well recall because some weeks ago I'm connected only from the studio and i have the CD's and vynils at home.

I supouse you have heard "Light My Fire" by Clarence Carter. I mentioned this one many time ago when we talked about songs that can make cry.

Some others:

«Shout» (Isley Brothers, Trammps)

«Superstition» (Stevie Wonder, Mighty Clouds Of Joy)

«Unforgetable» (Nat King Cole, Lou Rawls,...)

«On A Clear Day» (one of the most covered standards; I only have one by Peddlers, very very cool and two by Billy Paul from their albums "Feeling Good At The Cadillac Club" and from the album "Lately")

«Shaft» (Isaac Hayes, Joe Bataan, Bar-kays,...)

Peace & Soul Food!

Wow SDF! The Marvelettes did a cover of The Emotions' 'So I Can Love You'? I had no idea! What does that sound like?

There's a great song on Jean Terrell's solo album called 'The Rising Cost Of Love' that was covered by several different artists. I've heard versions by Millie Jackson, Darrow Fletcher, Loose Change, Cut Glass and Elkie Brooks. My favorite is the Loose Change version with Jean's coming in second. Jean gives a good (yet way too restrained) performance on her original version but the group Loose Change turned this one out! I just don't understand why this song was never a hit with so many different recordings of it around? Has anyone else heard it?

We had two earlier threads on this same subject some months ago, they should be in the Archives.

What about "Stairway to Heaven"- there was the hard rock original - I don't know the name of the group. Tiny Tim and Gefilte Joe and the Fish did remakes. Then there's Neil Sedaka's version (just kidding. That was a different song).

What about "The White Cliffs of Dover". There must have been 100 R&B versions alone

Also:
White Christmas
Blue Moon
Secret Love
C.C. Rider
Misty

Feelings

"I'm Not In Love" was also sung by The Love Twins (on OUR OWN Altair Records, I might add).)

Hello everyone.

I have to add to one of Lady Mystique's selections "I Heard it Through the Grapevine".

Not only was it done by MARVIN GAYE, GLADYS KNIGHT & THE PIPS and SMOKEY ROBINSON & THE MIRACLES, but also by CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL .. THE TEMPTATIONS ... and ( wait for it ) .....

ROGER .......... ( i.e. ROGER TROUTMAN of ZAPP fame )

Not one of Mr Troutman's best efforts (IMO) but with a name like that he deserves a mention.

Roger

Hey Rod!

It's a little different from the Emotions, but it's interesting. It's on The Return of the Marvelettes lp, which I have on vinyl. I believe it's out of print.

Wishing On A Star ~ Rose Royce
Will Downing
Tina MArie
...Will Downings' version is my favorite

There was a song Shirley Murdock recorded. I think the name of the song was "Go On Without You".
I've always wondered why Aretha never re~recorded
that song. It sounds like something she could really get down on.

Thanks SDF. I don't think anyone else could compete with The Emotions' original 'So I can Love You' but I'll keep my eyes peeled for The Marvelettes version. Sounds interesting.

Medusa: Hi there :-) Go On Without You Was one great song & wouldn't you know that Mr Roger Troutman was behind her career? If memory serves me correctly, she also sang on Zapps hit Computer Love.

Hello Submarine again, SFD Family!

Hi, Kevin "lover of all styles of good music man" Quinn (smile!)
Thanks for your info. I'm not sure if I knows nothing by Brian Auger, but got the impression that is a good fusion music act (have many jazz-fusion artists I heards in spanish "Área Reservada" radio program wich i don't got nothing).

Hi, Mr. Phil Hurtt
The only cover of Spinner's "I'll Be Around" I knows is by Terri Wells and I hate totally. I only likes his voice in Dexter Wansel's "Together Again".

Some other great songs with covers or remakes:

-"Cry Cry Baby" - The Enchanters, Janis Joplin
-"Emotionally Yours" - Bob Dylan, O'Jays
-"Requiem For A Princess" - Maurice Ravel, Eumir Deodato

Hi, Handsome,
I knows another two versions of "I'm Gonna You Love Me", one instrumental by Brothers of Hope and one vocal recorded live by Margie Joseph & Major Harris (from their WMOT "Live!" album with Blue Magic).

Peace & Soul Food

Handsome, Dee Dee Warwick did record the original version of 'I'm Gonna Make You Love Me' in 1966 and had a R&B hit with it. Madeline Bell recorded it in early 1968 and also had a small R&B hit with it before The Supremes and Tempts version was released in 1969.

Medusa,
funny you should bring this up, cause I just mentioned in conversation I wanted to create a cd like this, now this will help me along.

I said that Wichita Lineline seems to be a song that has been done several times. I love the country feel of that song. Glen Campbell, Ray Charles, The Originals all did it. I know there are a few other folk too, not to mention the instrumental versions of it.

Hello Submarine, Moe!

I don't knows this one you mentioned. BTW of the little I knows my fave is the one by Billy Paul (from his "Ebony Woman" LP).

This Billy's album contains some other "standars" as:
-"Mr. Robinson" (originally by Simon & Garfunkel)
-One originally by Sly Stone ("All Day Music"?...). I can't checking the Lp now.

Medusa, add the powerful live cover by CTI-All Stars of "People Makes The World Go Round".

Also, speakin of Ronnie Laws, his "Always There" has been covered by Incognito featuring Jocelyn Brown among many other fusion artists.

Another "standar" is "Stranger In Paradise" I've heard it many times also in a spanish TV spot. I got a very good cover by Isaac Hayes in his "New Horizon" LP.

Manny,
William Shatner was the star in the TV series Star Trek. For some odd reason he made an album a few years back that was terrible. He is presently doing commercials with another ex- Star Trek member, Leanord Nimoy, which are much better than his album was.

Hi again, soulful friends!

Hello, Moe.
Thanks for your explanation. I knows who is this actor but ignored his "singer" facet. In fact I practically never see the Star-treck serie. My children seen always at catalonian TV.
Here in Spain have a legion of fans called "Trekis".

The only actor of a TV serie who is "also" a singer and I knows and likes a lot is a member of "G Command" (Comando G in spanish TV), ISAAC HAYES. (Smile!)

Some other covers i remember now:

«All The Way» (Frank Sinatra, Lou Rawls, Solomon Burke)

«Cabaret» (Liza Minelli, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and a lot of other artists)

«California Dreaming» (Mamas & Papas, Kymaera)

Manny--There's another version of "Together" by a group out of east L.A. called Tierra. It was a pop and soul hit in 1981 and they also threw in a couple of lines from "Cowboys to Girls" as well.

Also, whoever mentioned Shatner as doing "Proud Mary" got the wrong Trek guy. That was Nimoy who did a version of that one (no matter, as he's just as rotten a singer as Shatner is...and since Shatner recites the lyrics, can we even consider him a singer?).

Best,

Mark

Hello Submarine to all,

Thanks, Mark for your info. I only knows Tierra was in the Salsoul catalogue. For their name ("Earth" in spanish) i supouse they made a sort of latin-soul.

Hey, Tyrone I got another cover of "Reach Out I'll Be There" by Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers.

Hi, Rodmann i got also another cover of "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers".

No, Manny, Tierra did not record for Salsoul. Their hit single came out on the short-lived Boardwalk label, owned by Neil Bogart (former president of both Buddah and Casablanca records).
The label shut down shortly before Bogart passed away from cancer.

"Little Green Apples"--also recorded by Roger Miller
"Make It With You"--also recorded by both the Whispers and the Main Ingredient
"With Pen in Hand"--also recorded by Johnny Darrell, Vikki Carr and Billy Vera

Thanks Manny. I'm not familiar with the group Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers. How's their version of 'Never Gonna Give You Up'? My favorites so far have been the Jerry Butler original and the version by Bonnie Bramlett & Dobie Gray. The Gene Chandler and Lyn Collins remakes are not all that great. I usually like Lyn Collins' funky, James Brown produced covers of popular hits that they did in the early 70's but her 'Never Gonna Give You Up' is predictable and uninspired.

I did a little research after I last posted to this thread and I see that there are several more versions of 'I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face' that I didn't know about. In addition to the ones I've already listed there are versions by Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Madeline Bell, Dusty Springfield, The Monticellos and SDF's own Spyder Turner!

Roddee, Jeanette was in the group and one of the original Emotions true enough, but at the time when this song was recorded, it was with Wanda & Sheila,& Theresa's vocals because Jeanette was pregnant and out of the group for a while in the late 60's.

Hello Submarine again!

Hey, Mark,
Thanks for your explanations about Tierra (perhaps Salsoul only distributed, ??)

Hi, Rodmann,
I don't knows how to describe how sounds this Chuck Brown cover. Of course not admits comparison with the one by the Ice Man, it's more deep and some... Go-go style at the same time (Chuck is considerd as the "king" of go-go style).

Some other "covers":
-"Love Train" O'Jays, Bunny Sigler, Three Degrees
-"Me & Ms. Jones" Billy Paul, Johnny Mathis, Freddie Jackson, Sarah Jane Morris
-"I Stand Accused" Jerry Butler, Elvis Presley

Also have two more covers of "If You Don't Know Me By Now": by Ray Conniff and Sarah Jane Morris

Nope, Boardwalk had nothing to do with Salsoul. It was distributed initially through CBS, then went independent.

"Sukiyaki"--also recorded by Jewel Akens (the first American translation of the song, entitled "My First Lonely Night", in 1965).

Rod--you don't know Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers? You've never heard their song "Bustin' Loose"?

Best,

Mark

Thanks Manny. Mark, I'm not familiar with Chuck Brown and as far as I know I've never heard 'Bustin Loose'. The closest thing I've heard is Rick James' hit 'Bustin Out'.

Hey Handsome. Everything I've read has always stated that Jeanette didn't leave The Emotions until 1971. I assumed that she was with the group throughout the 60's. DVDMike is the expert on Chicago Soul and if anyone can find out, he can. Thanks.

To add on to your list Lady M-Brina McKnight did a version of Signed Sealed Delivered.

Rodmann, you are not going to worry me! :o)

At any rate, I pulled out my Emotions Chronicle cd last night. I read the liner notes, and Rodmann & Rodee, you were both correct about Jeanette & Theresa. Jeanette took leave in 1970, replaced by Theresa Davis. My apologies to you both.

Here's another song:

Wow, quite a list! I don't think I saw this title, but am quite surprised it hasn't been
mentioned...SUNNY by Bobby Hebb was recorded
many, many times by different artists. It
was said to have been one of the most recorded
songs in 1968, I believe.
I thought of it by the original question on
this post--"multiple" times and SUNNY was done
over and over.
Whatever became of Bobby Hebb? Where is he?

Lady Mystique:
Leon Russell wrote and recorded the original "A Song For You."

I second the recommendation to hear Donny Hathaway's newly released version of "Yesterday." It is deep.

Also, Peter Frampton did a lousy version of "Signed, Sealed" in '77.

What's up Handsome. That's ok about The Emotions. Now I remember that I found out about Jeanette's departure from the liner notes of the Emotions Cronicle cd.

I'm gald that you bought up 'To Be Young, Gifted & Black'. I wasn't even aware that Donny Hathaway recorded that song. I'm only familiar with Nina & Aretha's versions. Nina's original is great but Aretha (with lot's of help from The Sweets as usual) took that song and made it her own. One of my all-time favorites by The Queen.

Manny, The Blossoms also recorded "Grandma's Hands' on their Shockwave LP in the early 70's and Samantha Sang & Laura Nyro also had versions of 'La La Means I Love'. Samantha Sang's reading is probably my favorite version of the song. You should check it out.

Here's a few more:

'Day Tripper' - The Beatles, The Vontastics, Big Dee Irwin & Mamie Galore

'Hard To Handle' - Otis Redding, Patti Drew, Mae West, Black Crows

'Breakfast In Bed' - Dusty Springfield, Baby Washington (I'm not sure who did this song first but Baby Washington's version puts Dusty's to shame!)

Hi Rodman, King Floyd did a great version of "Hard To Handle" on his ATCO LP.
Seeing the Beatles, does anybody know Phil Flowers' version of "I Saw Her Standing There" ? It's on his great LP "Our Man In Washington", where he also covers "Try A Little Tenderness", "Mr Pitiful", and "The Great Pretender". I discovered this LP (and a few more, like Bennie Conn) thanks to In The Basement.

Thanks Phil. I knew that there had to be other versions of 'Hard To Handle' recorded but I've only heard the versions I listed. I love that song! My favorites are of course Otis' excellent original and Patti Drew's kick azz remake! Both versions deserved to be much bigger hits than they were!

By the way, Judy Clay also recorded 'Mister Pitiful' as 'Sister Pitiful'. It's included on the "Atlantic Sisters Of Soul" compilation. I'm not impressed with this version at all. I don't think that anyone could come close to Otis' original. The arrangement of 'Sister Pitiful' is lackluster and Judy Clay is worthy of much much more.

Hello again, Pazant Brothers & Clark Sisters!

Hi, Rodmann,
Thanks for your extensive info. I can imagine how poetic should to be the "La-La Means" in the voice of Laura...!
The one by Livingston Taylor ("Grandma's Hands") I mentioned it's the only I got by this group and is very gospel and higly recomended. I got in a 2 x CD of the Chesky Records 10th Anniversary.

Hi, Here I Am,
The one by Sonia it's by reagge singer Sonia? I read she recorded a whole CD of Philly classics. It's interesting that you tolds about "Trade winds", this is one of my faves of all the Lou Rawls PIR period.

Another fantastic cover:
"Visions" by Stevie Wonder, was covered by a genial trumpeter, Luis Gasca.

Peace & Soul Food!

hi manny....yes the Three Degrees were the first who recorded "TRADE WINDS" in 1970 for the New York based Roulette label, they had a R&B hit with it in 72, and it's featured on the "Roulette years " cd
I knew that a reggae artist recorded"W W I S Y A", but the girl that i mean is a UK pop singer on the PWL label....she recorded a wholme Philly album in the 90' , very difficult to find....

Hi Mark,

It is that bad!!! It's not done in his usual comedy singing style. I have to say that I loved Bills' 70s singing LPs. I'll also tell you this: You ain't lived until you've heard Bill scream through Satisfaction & Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band!!!

By the way, the songs that I've mentioned are from Bills LP, Bill Cosby Sings Hooray For Ths Salvation Army Band on Warner/Reprise records. His backing band is none other than The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band!!! Express Yourself Bill!!

Handsome: You must add James Carr to the list of The Dark End Of The Street. Many Soul fans consider His recording to be one of the finest in Soul history.

Yep, Tom sure did a version of "Hard to Handle"...it's on one of his live LPs from the early '70s (isn't it nice to have a big TJ fan on this list? ;)).

As a matter of fact, if you chance to see the track listings on some of Jones's albums, you'll note that he did quite a few soul covers (hell, if you had the voice he has, wouldn't you attempt those songs as well?).

Jimmy--I did get to hear Cos's version of "Satisfaction". My friend Darryl has the album (the only time I've ever seen that album, BTW), and one night we were over his house, drunk and stoned and going through his record collection when I happened upon that record and asked him to play it as I had to hear it to believe it!

"I Can't Wait to See My Baby's Face"--also by Pat Thomas, our very own Spyder Turner, and also the Monticellos (I believe you had something to do with this version as well, Spyder?).

Best,

Mark

Hey Mark. Tom Jones does have a great voice but his material is way too "Vegas" for my tastes. If he recorded his version of 'Hard To Handle' in a stripped down Soul style than maybe I might enjoy it.

I've already mentioned 'I Can't Wait To See My Baby's Face' twice in this thread. I listed several different versions including the ones you listed, except for the Pat Thomas remake. I'm not sure who exactly Pat Thomas is? I also had no idea that Spyder Turner was involved in The Monticellos version. That's interesting. It's a great tune and my favorites so far have been the hit version by Baby Washington and the late 60's remake by Sonji Clay (first wife of Muhammad Ali). Isn't Baby Washington's record the original?

Handsome, James Carr is considered as great as Otis Redding by the Southern soul lovers, as O.V. Wright or Spencer Wiggins. And if you want to know everything about him, just read Peter Guralnick's "Sweet Soul Music". One of the best book on the subject !

Handsome,

EVERYTHING that James Carr has ever done is now available on CD, thanks to the fine folks at Ace/Kent over in the UK.

Even if you can't get your hands on one of those CDs, a guy named Rune Blomquist has a site with a ton of RAs on James and other Southern soulers. Can't remember the URL at hand, but I'll post it for you once I do.

Best,

Mark

You're right, Mark, i've found it on google : www.melingo.com/thesoulnet/car r.htm
Very complete discography, though I have one LP not on the list, it's "Live and Living", Goldwax 3003 (bootleg ?), recorded live in Japan. Sorry to say this, but I won't recommend it ! It has very poor sound recording, and a pitiful performance from James. What a shame !

Hey mistically Lady Mystique,

-"What Color Is Love" Terry callier, Dee Dee Sharp
-"Nobody Can Take Your Place", Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Dee Dee Sharp

And another cover I'm herading now of Michael McDonald's "Takin' To The Streets" (appart from the one by Billy Paul) it's by vibraphonist Jay Hoggard.

Rod--Pat Thomas was a jazz/pop singer, who had a mid-'60s hit with "Desafinado". I think her version of "I Can't Wait..." was on the flip side of the single (on Verve).

"Just Like a Woman"--also done by Manfred Mann
"Cheaper to Keep Her"--also done by John Goodman in the "Blues Brothers 2000" movie

And since Dylan was brought up:
"Like a Rolling Stone"--Bob Dylan, the Turtles, the Young Rascals and the Four Seasons.

I think The Velvelettes did the best version of "The Boy From Crosstown".

The Drifters sang "The Christmas Song", but how could we leave out Nat "King" Cole.

The Supremes also sang "Some day We'll Be Together"

WHAT? Andy Williams did a version of "Tell It Like It Is"? Say it ain't so, Gil!

Actually, and this really should go in the Guilty Pleasures thread, I do like "Can't Get Used to Losing You", "More", "Speak Softly Love" and "Love Story".

And the Mods like a song of his called "House of Bamboo". Hmmm...maybe ol' Andy is hipper than we think!

Best,

Mark

Yes, Andy Williams did "Tell It Like It Is". I like the English Beat's remake of "Can't Get Used To Losing You".

Add Jimi Hendrix to "Like A Rolling Stone" (Monterey Festival 1967)

"Yesterday" (Lennon/McCartney) is the most covered song in history. I think I read somewhere that "Something" (Harrison) was third. I know it's in the top ten.

No, Charise, I can't say that I have. Knowing George, I bet it's probably worth hearing.

Speaking of Benson, one of the oddest things I ever heard was his version of the David Houston country hit "My Woman's Good to Me". This was probably one of George's first vocals (from 1969) and is an interesting reconstruction of a country classic. It's gotten a lot of attention from the Northern soul crowd in the UK.

Mark

Mark:-):-):-):-):-):-) Yes it is worth hearing!!! I remember that album was played frequently in my household, by both parents. I'm surprised that you brought up My Woman's Good To Me, from the same album, a favorite of my mother's. I have never heard the country version...hmmmm BTW this album is one you rarely here about, but it is called Tell It Like It Is recorded on A&M in 1969. The whole album IMO is very good!!:-):-)

Soul Limbo
Are You Happy
Tell It Like It Is
Land of 1000 Dances
Jackie, All

My Woman's Good To Me

Hello again, soulful brothers & sisters!

"Don't Give Up On Us Baby", David Soul / Billy Paul

"See Saw", Don Covay / Lonnie Smith

"The Ghetto", Donny Hattaway / George Benson*

"Lately", Stevie Wonder / George Benson*

*From his "Absolutely Benson" CD

Also, I can't check my vynils now, but have another ballad by George Benson in his 2 x LP "Livin' Inside Your Love", the same ballad that sounds in the film "Ghost" and i believe, for the voices, the original is by Impressions (?).

Peace!

Also "Star Of The Story" done by Heatwave, was also done by George Benson, two very nice versions.
Benson's version from the Give Me The Night album
Warner Bros. 1980. Killer guitar licks on that one!:-):-)

P.S. almost forgot another version by an artist named Grenique on the Motown label about 5 or 6 years ago, I thought she had a promising career, in the vein of a Jill Scott or Erykah Badu. Her's is another excellent version!:-):-)
