    I think Dee Dee Warwick doing ANY song will blow away all the other versions. The Supremes and Temptations couldn't come near her original "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me".

    Here's The Flamingos' 1952 version, with Sollie McElroy's soaring lead:

    I find it hard to believe that Broadway songwriter, Kurt Weill, went to a Chicago-based, child-owned music publishing company in 1938 to publish a song he intended for a Broadway musical. Joni Music was owned by Chance Records' owner, Art Sheridan, who was only a young teenager back then, in 1938. Actually, I know he founded Joni Music in 1952. So, Weill and Anderson would have had to have been hard up for money in 1952 to sell him the publishing rights to that song. Of course that never happened. It's just a hint to collectors that the record is not a real original, or a legitimate re-issue by the real owner (e.g. it was a bootleg pressing).

    My fault brotha. But I feel your pain. I'm kicking myself about several cds I passed on only to have them go out of print, hard to find or go from 12.99 to hundreds of dollars. And don't get me started on dvd sets.
