Pretty sure no 45 release by The Temps , was included on their "Cloudnine " album released in 69 , but sounds much earlier recording .

Was of course 1st released by Freddie Scott in 63 , then at least 5 cover versions .

Should have done more research I'm now upto at least 10 cover versions , Ray Charles , Michael McDonald, Billy Joel , lots of famous Pop stars , and even a CW instrumental version , The Temptations, is a great version can't remember if it got a mention in the earlier topic , Motown album tracks worthy of a 45 , maybe yet to be ?  via our favourite Spanish label of the moment ( yes it did get a mention cheers Wilxy )
