BETTY EVERETT - NOTHING I WOULDN'T DO
This was Betty Everett's first 45 after the closing/ bankruptcy of Vee Jay Records, which was her home for four years and the label that released her biggest hit; the immortal "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)", along with "You're No Good" and several well-loved duets with Jerry Butler. Coupled with a great song (penned by Jo Armstead and Valerie Simpson), some super production from Johnny Pate, and of course Betty's always lovely vocals, this sophisticated and swingin' song should have been a hit for Betty. Sadly, she only had one more major hit a few years later ("There'll Come A Time"), and while she recorded throughout the 70's the records went nowhere.
