Happy New Year Todd!

Thanks for bringing Dee Dee Warwick to my attention. I had thought Betty Everett's version of "You're No Good" was the original version, but I'm clearly mistaken. Everett's version was the b-side to her big hit "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)."

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Mathew! Yes, we've corresponded...and mine is no secret.

HNY, Brian...yeah, DDW's digs in just a little harder than Everett's, though the latter was more cleanly recorded. Both better than Ronstadt's, though that one isn't the kind of sad cover that, say, the Captain and Tenille's "Shop Around" is in comparison with Miracles'...

We have via gmail, but I don't think I have a direct address, which I figure is the best way to send you the links. No FFB today? I have limited access to the Net...

Can you send it to my Hotmail addy? Gmail is messing with me today. mattpaust@hotmail.com

Done.
