This old heart of mine (is weak for you) - 1965?

Recommended Posts

I wonder if the good folks at SS could help me with a small query:

 

I'm in the arduous tasks if noting my singles in some form of catalogue which now I've started I'll finish - I have come across the classic Isley Brother's number to find it is labelled (clearly) as 1965, I was sure it was recorded in '66. I've checked discogs and the earliest on there is '66 also, although it being January of '66.

 

Why would a label state a year (or perhaps a month!) Earlier? 

 

Any replies or ideas are much appreciated. 

 

Dave.

The Isleys vocals were overdubbed on December 1, 1965.

The info I posted is from Don’t Forget The Motor City, didn’t they havevaccess to all the files at Motown?  No sign of any Kim Weston recording.

I don't know about DFTMC having access to all the files.  Not sure what "assigned " means either- it could mean they wanted her to record it 

but that doesn't mean she went in the studio and actually did. The song was also considered for the Four Tops but they were on tour in Europe.

Lamont Dozier remembers the Isleys were begging HDH for songs. I guess it all turned out well in the end .
