I tried to change the common e in the thread title to a capital E but was not able to when I previewed the post initially.Why Is that?I could easily do this in the old forum setup.

This is the flip side of Getting Mighty Crowded (yes, I peeked in the Billboard R&B book.) This is how my CD collection expands - someone puts up a link to a great song and then I am on a mission to find it! Crazy about "You're No Good" by Betty Everett too.

Dusty Springfield does a nice version of "Chained To A Memory" on her Look Of Love album from late '67.

Thanks for the link Mikey.

Another great (later) track from Betty .... "Unlucky Girl" .... a NS gem .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6mtrO6wuwo
No idea who decided she should cut this song as it was 1st recorded in Cleveland by the Exceptional Three (later reissued on GRT as by the Exceptionals). Betty's version has a "Make Me Yours' vibe to it (guess thats cos of the guitar work on her version).

I think it's the same programme glitch that makes all forum name letters lower case. My name should be "Robb_K". not "robb_k"!
