Baby Dont You Weep - Luther Ingram

Recommended Posts

Just reading Ady c's top ten in New Century post, and event though heard above a fair few times, to be honest can't remember the difference between this and the Wilson Pickett Version.

Anyone soundclip or view

Whatcha Mike

If my memory is correct then this is how it goes.

The track is the same as wilson pickett with the only difference being Luther Ingrams is a much better version in its recording. The vocal is more upfront and deeper plus the instrumentation/backing is better quality than wilson's lp version on Double L.

The funny thing is i don't think its really luther Ingram as Ady told me he was unsure of who the real singer was. Its a bit like the lou johnson - The panic is on - acetate..... No Name but the credits/sound/acetate connection (big top) point to maybe Lou Johnson.

The same goes for "baby don't you weep" but its a master tape not acetate with no name but a few things point to old Luther. There are are few other versions as well that got a 7" release (bit faster though and no way as good as Luther).

cheers greg

do you know what points to the "luther" connection

didnt know there was a "double l" connection with luther i

(lloyd price popping up again, thought the double l might have meant him and his brother but apparently not"

odd trivia dug/remebered while here

seems track remake/based on an old spirtual tune

"oh mary dont you weep, dont you mourn"

wilson pickett's one is avail on 45, its a portugese one like, dunno how scarce

who's the other version by, think was german dj who had it, but cant remember which one
