    I seem to remember Dolly Parton doing "Two Lovers" on an early LP. The name of Motowns country label escapes me but I think TG Shepherd was a country success on it.

    The cover of the Old, The New& The Best was a terrible photo of Mary. She hated it, too. She was paid a per track fee for that one.

    I think their LP vesion of "Proud Mary" produced by Phil Spector, inspired the GREAT version by Ike & Tina the following year.

    If my memory serves me correctly, I believe she was paid a "per track" fee, which is alot more then she would have made from "royalties". Mary was doing real good on LIVE performances at that time.
