The Midniters - Alternative Versions Of Top Tunes

Recommended Posts

Guest

Stumbled on this on youtube.

Group called 'Thee Midnighters' from the 60's........versions of Timi Yuro and Stoppers.

Timi Yuro......

Stoppers........

Seems some coincidence that a group way back then happened to have covered two tunes that became massive Northern Sounds years later or am I thinking too much into it?

...Yes. Yes you are...

...and given that their recording of 'It'll Never Be Over for Me' predates Timi Yuro's I hardly think you can call it a cover. It's closer in arrangement to Baby Washington's version, but it's hardly a 'cover' of that, as it was released two year later.

Thee Midniters revived a lot of songs, from 'It's Not Unusual' to mcKinley Mitchell's 'The Town I Live In' but none of them were covers...

Great group, with a fantastic lead singer in Little Willie Garcia...
