Got to be Darrell banks for me.

Was one of my first 45s I bought and still play it regularly at home. 

It's the raw sound for me and as good as JJs version is I still prefer Darrell's version.

JJB for me, I think I'm not a huge fan of DB, I also prefer Doni Burdick OTDTYH to DB's version, that one is easier for me to explain as the brass has more impact than the DB one. With OLIITP I just find JJB's delivery smoother.

If i'm not mistaken wasn't this covered in 2014?. For me it has to be Darrell Bank's 7inch single version.Was the version as a pposed to JJ Barnes's that was always played at the Wheel and other noted clubs during the early days of the scene.

Regards Fred.

They are both wonderful versions that simply ooze Soul,  if I had to choose it would be J.J. Barnes for me... :)  :hatsoff2:

jjB (but only just) has that smoother  ( almost Marvin Gaye esque..) quality to the vocals... (at least to my ears).

Darrell Banks every day of the week. The original, and the best. Hands down. No argument. The version played at the Wheel, Torch, and everywhere else back in the "olden days". And probably the finest double sider ever to grace our scene.

Brit groups like the Move & Amen Corner always used to perform this live (though many more did "Open The Door") ... that's how it was back then ... 

MIND YOU ... I think a lot of the time (by 67/68-ish), their managers were telling them what to include in their live acts ... the Move, Amen Corner & Eyes of Blue all had the same manager ...

Voted JJ, but man it’s close! Backing vocal wise I love the punchy male vocals on Darrell’s but the girls sure do sound good on JJ’s... 

JJ’s vocal just wins here for me...

glad I got both on 45, that way I don’t actually ever really have to properly vote... 🙂

I never vote on these version battles! 

These are both wonderful records, and one is not inferior in any way to the other!

Agree both are 1st class but the poll is not asking which is better, just which version does it for you. I prefer D.Bs version but that doesn't mean its any better than J.Js.
