I have got this record well the wife has got it I think its ok. How any singers these days would be bothered learning another language to perform it in there country this goes to show the talent wilison pickett had well I think so anyway.

I have a version of "Deborah" on a compilation LP from the 60s which jumps between him singing romantically in Italian and then cracking to funky broadway... :rolleyes:
