TAD ROBINSON`S "TOO LATE TO TURN BACK NOW" (BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL ME THINKS)

JOE BATAAN`S "UNDER THE STREET LAMP" (ALTHOUGH THE EXIT`S IS GREAT I PREFER THIS VERSION)

RISCO CONNECTION "AIN`T NO STOPPING US NOW" (SOUNDS LIKE THEY WENT ON HOLIDAY TO JAMAICA THEN WENT TO PHILLY TO CUT THIS TRACK THE BEST STRINGS ON A RECORD I HAVE EVER HEARD)

THERE`S 3 OUT OF THE BOX.

ALL DA BEST

Gladys Knight and the Pips' version of "Hey Jude" is better than the Beatles' (who were too fond of themselves by half, by that point), and Erma Franklin's "Light my fire" is far, far better than the Doors.

I also prefer Rotary Connection's take on "Respect", but only because I know Otis and Aretha have much to offer besides.

I think this is a better version of You Are My Sunshine than the original, written by the Governor of the State of Louisiana (see http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/sunshine.htm)!

The Fania All Stars - 'If This World Were Mine' LP track

You're joking right? I mean you put this up as a joke. Apart from the fact that it sounds like a variety act recorded from an episode of Phoenix Nights, it's completely out of tune. Or have I missed something!!!!

Its not even near Marvin and Tammi...

Confused, shocked and distraught of East Dulwich

Kimiko Kasai - Killing Me Softly - Two different versions on two different LP's by her and both vastly different to the original and each other ! far more funky in an early 80's style. Both Columbia Jap only LP's 1984 + 1985.

Dee Edwards - Come What May - Morning Sun 45 Late 80's

Gregory Del Piero - Anytime - Swing City 12" 2005 A soulful house version of the Brian McKnight track and probably my best track of 2005
