This time around the version battle is one that as it's such a long running comparison you would have thought was done before, but it appears not!

Recently suggested by Mick aka @Greedy Mick and also just featured in a recent forum topic , this version battle is all about...
Look  Into My Heart

 

Little Willie Faulk - Look Into My Heart v Ree Flores - Look  Into My Heart

1 Ree Flores - Look  Into My Heart

2 Little Willie Faulk - Look Into My Heart

Almost impossible to distinguish!

Ree just has a slightly deeper voice and therefore a bit more soulful, but both tracks fantastic.

When did these track first hit the scene?

I'd say the Ree Flores has a  stronger vocal but it would be great to own either of these fine productions.

Definitely Ree for me , it just seems to have a bit more to it.

Excuse my ignorance but why is Ree's version attributed to Ree Flores and Willies version to George Flores ?

I could search for it but i'd like to see if any of our members knows the answer.

Very little in it. The Faulk record has a slightly sharper sound but Ree is a better singer.

When I suggested this to Mike I had been listening to some old cassettes and after listening to both it was almost a 50 50 vote but I just prefer Ree Flores although I would like to have either copy in my box

That is a great question and (I hope Mike doesn't mind) the thread Mike mentioned has some info (at the bottom) I found and I am still searching to try and find out😀

There seems to be a lot of interest in buying a copy of the Ree version, Mike. Perhaps now this poll It might get a little more attention, as it is clearly in a lot of peoples wants list and is over $1000 with plenty of days to go

Not heard the Little Willie Faulk version before - superb as well, but Ree Flores edges it for me - has the X Factor vocal wise, probably not as good a singer technically but throws everything at it 

PS anyone else notice LWF version is a different mix with an additional 30 seconds or so two thirds through

I voted for Ree Flores but as others have said there is little in it. Only heard of the Faulk version a few years ago when Dave Flynn played it the NYE allnighter near Great Portland Street station. If I was out wouldn't really be able to tell the difference. Fabulous dancer. Wasn't it a Stafford tune?

I've had two copies of Little Willie Faulk. Interesting thing is one copy had the address on the label & the other one didn't. Only ever had one copy of Ree Flores. Having played both versions at Stewartby I have to admit general opinion has always been Ree Flores sounds better loud.

Little Willie Faulk was the pride of my box in about 1984 and did play it out quite a bit, it came off Dave Raistrick around the same time Gary Rushbrooke was playing the Ree Flores. Heard it on one of Daves tapes and blew me head off, had to have it. £30 from memory, 1st copy, both brilliant but I am totally biased for obvious reasons,  also heard LWF before Ree Flores which often has a bearing. But I agree with everything thats been said above.

the last day or so to express your view if not done already!

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------

always on the lookout for future poll suggestions

some criteria - one version must be fairly well known, need to limit it to just 2 or 3 versions, 

looking for battles that be both interesting and enjoyable

any ideas ?

if have any, then get them to me via pm (not on this topic please ) to me via @Mike
