Open The Door To Your Heart - How Many Versions?

Recommended Posts

Since I first heard Darrell Banks', "Open the Door to Your Heart" this has been a favourite tune. Apart from Darrell's unsurpassable version I have heard it done by:

Jackie Wilson

Doni Burdick

The Mob

The Capitols

Sonny Munroe

Little Willie G

Can anyone add to the list?

There's a version on the UK reggae label Torpedo from the early 70's but I can't remember who it's by, sorry 

I think that was Errol English thumbsup.gif

The Slam Creepers did a good version of it (very similar to the Capitols version). Their singer later ended up in Blue Swede and scored a huge US hit with "Hooked On A Feeling"...

Gregory Isaacs also did a version. Came out over here on Cactus in 1974.

Freddie Scott did a good version on a Shout (UK Joy) LP. I don't think any version touches Darrel's original, but Freddie's version must be one of the better covers of it.
