Just looking through some 45s and came across Lenis Guess "Just Ask Me" on Legrand its an updated version of his old Wigan stomper, got me thinking how many other updated songs are there?

A couple that spring to mind are

Natural Four I thought you were mine

Ty Karim Lighten up (baby)

I'm sure theres loads more so get your thinking caps on

Not really updated but apart from newer release stuff the strangest thing I've come across is by Love - That's The Way It Is & The Only Way on RRG records.

TTWII is the A side & TOW is the B side. 2 totally different tracks & titles but the same lyrics.

Will post up soundclips in a minute but the sound quality ain't that good so forgive the pun - that's the way it is!

7 inch & album are totally different cuts.

What about:-

Big Al Downing - I'm just nobody - Columbia & Polydor (2 totally different records by the same artist,same title).

Last night I heard a totally different version of 'Don't bring back memories' by The Four Tops now it was definately The Four Tops singing so it wasn't the unreleased Shrine Version by Tommy somebody or other but it was different than my copy, I have it on UK single anyone know what it is.

Regards

How many times has Tyrone Davis recorded 'Turn back the hands of time'? I've got two versions on Dakar and a version on some other label, but that last one may just be a reissue. I sure don't care enough to actually dig it out!

The Righteous Bros. rerecorded all their 'greatest hits', and just about every incarnation of the Drifters seems to have re-recorded their entire back catalogue. My sister bought a 'Best of' that has another version of 'On Broadway' to add to the three I've already got... :thumbsup:

Dee Dee Warwick "Where Is That Rainbow" Mercury.

LP & 45 are different versions.

Bettye Swann "I Think I'm Falling In Love" (Slow & Fast versions)

Also, Lou Pride recently updated his classic "I'm Comin Home In The Morning" to really good effect!

One we've discussed a few times ,Little Willie John - I'm Shakin'

Another one that appears on the 'Kent - New Breed R&B' cd , 'Bobby Byrd - I Found Out' speed it up slightly, change the lyrics & it becomes 'Time Will Make A Change' on Smash, works well too i think yes.gif

Another along a similar vein, 'Bob & Earls - Harlem Shuffle' , use the lyrics from 'I Can't Get Away' & it becomes 'Puppet On A String' & 10 x better !!

Was probably done the other way round though.

The Dells "Oh What a Night" released on Veejay in 1956 and then later on Cadet in 1969 I believe. Two different versions of same song.

One that comes to mind , is James Brown " Night Train " ........

The UK Sue issue was slightly faster than the other release copies for the disc .......

Can anyone clarify the reason for this ?

Blake,

I thought the slow Ty Karim was actually "Lightin up"? Seem to remember seeing it on a label spelt like that but could be wrong. :rolleyes:

Spot. :g:

'Funky Nassau' by Beginning of the End was rerecorded as a disco number by the vocalist, does that count?

The Esquires did a rerecord of 'Get on up'

In addition to the two Righteous versions of 'Loving feeling' Bill Medley recorded a solo version.

Carole King recorded 'Some of your lovin'' under her own name and with/as The Honey Bees.

Probably recorded around the same time rather than updated - RB Hudmon's "How can I be a witness" (Cotillion)

The LP version and 45 are different versions, with the album being a more uptempo recording of the song. :lol:
