As though of you who have been following this blog for a while will know, I have a major thing for Barbara Lynn (and have featured just about every 45 she's ever released!).

Sure, there's lots of great versions of this one, but Barbara does a great job stepping up to the standards of Barrett Strong and The Beatles. This version is unique in that the intro is so complex but funky. And that's a hard tightrope to balance upon! It's just too bad she doesn't have a guitar break in this one because she would have torn it up, alas.

from 1964...

Oh, Jamie records was incredible. Not only did they realize all those blazing Barbara Lynn sides, but also one of my all time 45's: Pookie Hudson- This Gets To Me. A real classy label!
