Shirley Shirelles Never give you up

Recommended Posts

Trawling through some prices today and was very, very surprised to see this selling for about £40 - 50. I think I paid less than a $1.00 for mine. It's nowhere near as good as Jerry Butler's version. Assume earlier Bell label harder to find (relatively) ? Will always be a £1.00 sound for me, you used to find them a lot in soul packs in the 70s (along with Johnny Howard - Chase is on). What's the attraction ?

I think its better than   Jerry  Butler's version and Eddie Floyd's.

Shirley & the Shirelles always did it for me. Much more than all the other versions. But that's just a taste matter I suppose. Many a things were cheap back then and now are fetching two digit prices or more. Don't see what is wrong with this record being in-demand then...

I always loved the Shirelles and I can tell when they are soulful and where they are less or not. But really if an artist or a group is/are accessible kinds of soul, I'm yet to part them. And is that old guard souls a tribe or some sort of a cult where they all know the good records  ? Who tell when they are or not ? Is it good or bad ?

Jerry Butler is still the man as far as this tune goes, but I'm after this as I'm still collecting all Amy/Mala/Bell soul sides.

Best, 

Mark

You won't have far to look Mark they appear regulary in all the known selling places, think there's one on Discogs right now.
