The latest battle is one which could be a tricky one if you don't already have firm views as this time around we have 4 versions all a bit different...

All you have to do is listen, that's the easiest bit, then select which one does it for you...

Before the internet days I was curious to hear the rare and then "hyped" Camaro's... Owning Jackey Beavers version that I always loved for it's raw, spontaneous and desperate teen plea with energy, I was rather disappointed the day I finally got to hear the Camaro's version which have none of those original characteristics.

As for the Continental Showstoppers it leaves me rather cold as it's just not my kind of stuff. But for those who do, it's a well done treatment IMHO. And the Karen Stribbling misses it all evidently. Yet I do know folks who like and even seek that "Lo-Fi" in there. So for different reasons, each of these 4 sides do have their "crowd".

You lil' rascal Mike. Oh so hard, they are all good toones. But the sweet clean lead and waving group vocals of the Camaros just melts the heart strings into submission for me. Nice one. Be interesting to see where it end up.

Camaro's (just) for me, the first version I heard - had it on a tape from 1991 Yarmouth weekender radio show (Butch?) and remember listening to it totally frazzled on the coach back to Manchester.

HOWEVER a very close call, also love Continental Showstoppers, a real powerhouse that the youtube clip above doesn't do justice to. Surprised not more takers for that version - here's better audio to give it a leg up:-

Contiental showstoppers sounds to me as he is talking it more than singing it in parts. Music sounds good though.

Not so surprised by the general score and the Camaro's 2 extra leading votes (the rarer one).

Loving the "rare" soul scene, I have also come to understand that is not always the "better" that takes it all.

Although to me it's only second to first and not even on the same 'sides' (lover come back) so not such a big deal either.
