It has been suggested that Carol is 'Carole Bayer Sager' who was married to Burt Bacharach.

So who's Gerri? Anybody know? Gerri Diamond perhaps?

This is the unreleased version of "How Can I Ever Find A Way" from the Fifth Estate CD. Someone just made it look like it was a Red Bird promo.

It is slightly different from the released version- definitely not the same from 0:09- 0:15 when you compare the 2 versions side by side.

I spent a few hours one day trying to find some info, not a sniff.

Carole Bayer Sager can be contacted easy enough via her website and Gerri sounds nothing like Gerri Diamond to these ears, she can also be contacted easy enough too.

There's far more instrumentation on the MGM version too - I think the Fifth Estate was a work in progress, more of a basic recording, albeit 99% finished.

I always felt the inclusion of the track on the CD was just a mistake, as Fifth estate were an all male group. Maybe the tape was found along with the other Wadlams / Askew compositions / recordings and it was just presumed to be them. Just my impression. and I may be wrong.

Cheers
