The jones girls backing vocals on other artist's songs

I saw a post on facebook and had to steal it. The Jones Girls were very busy session singers outside of their touring with Diana Ross. Post songs that you know by other artists with the Jones Girls singing background vocals. Here's a favorite:

Bruce Springsteen Soul Covers Album, ‘Only the Strong Survive’ [Columbia-11/11/2022]

From BestClassicBands.com-
Bruce Springsteen has announced a new album, Only the Strong Survive, of classic soul covers. The collection’s 15 tracks include his remakes of favorites by the Temptations, the Four Tops, Aretha Franklin and more. The album, coming Nov. 11, 2022, via Columbia Records, is named for the 1969 Jerry Butler single, a 1969 R&B and pop hit. Springsteen had been teasing the collection since Sept. 26 with a series of social media posts.

Springsteen’s 21st studio album will also feature guest vocals by Sam Moore [of Sam and Dave fame], as well as contributions from the E Street Horns, full string arrangements by Rob Mathes and backing vocals by Soozie Tyrell, Lisa Lowell, Michelle Moore, Curtis King Jr., Dennis Collins and Fonzi Thornton.
In the Sept. 29 announcement, Springsteen said, “I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray and Scott Walker, among many others. I’ve tried to do justice to them all—and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music. My goal is for the modern audience to experience its beauty and joy, just as I have since I first heard it. I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved making it.”
