John E.Paul - I Wanna Know - alternative version

Posted

I was in a restaurant in London recently and over the sound system I heard "I Wanna Know" not by John E Paul though. It was a duet with a male & female vocal and quite a bit slower than John E. Paul's version. Sounded like a Sixties production. Anyone know the version I'm talking about? Or was I dreaming? I think it may have been a radio station playing it.

Was it this? About £50 on uk Rainbow if so. Only snag is it isn't a duet...

Thanks - sounds like it could be, although I'm sure the one I heard was a duet. The Sugar Simone is a great version though.

I'll have to track a copy down.
Cheers

Maybe its another take - like the Jackie Edwards 'I Feel So Bad' duet...? Just a thought...

Not that much to do with this, but this is the original John E Paul acetate and note the title is I Want To Know, same as Sugar Simone, and not I Wanna Know which it eventually came out as

That's Interesting Pete. Which was the original version? Sugar Simone or John E Paul? Do we know?

I think Sugar Simone is to be honest.  I'm also thinking that acetate may be fake because I've seen another identical one.

The plot thickens. Was the Sugar Simone version ever played on the scene?

There's one on ebay for $250 at the moment. There goes the 50 quid valuation - or maybe not.
