I also have one on Sue by Jackie Shane...great great song. It also popped up by someone else (Rosy Greer maybe?) on a Kent UK soul compilation in the 80's of 60's material. Maybe I'll bring the 45 to play at the party. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Maybe the original of "I Just Can't Help Believin'" was by Wayne Newton (MGM 14014) who released it at the end of 1968. I know Bobby Vee's interpretation on his "Gates, Grills & Railings" album, at the beginning of 1969. Do you know who produced Bob Dileo's one (May 1969)? Michel. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Sun, 15 Jun 2003 16:35:18 EDT From: Paul Urbahns Subject: Hit Records of Nashville I have been researching and creating a discography of the Hit Records label (and associated labels) from Nashville. They operated from 1961 to 1973 making sound-a-likes of current hits. They issued them on singles sould out of their own racks in drug stores, discount stores, etc. The songs were compiled on albums on the Hit, Spar, and Modern Sound labels. The albums are usually easy to spot because the song titles will be displayed but usually no mention of an artist, also the albums normally have the word Compatible across the top or in a box on the back cover. While you all are rummaging throught used record stores, or Goodwill stores in your neighborhood, please keep me in mind. I can compile a listing but I will basically take any rock album on these labels. That's because some of what i have is in very bad condition. The Country & Western Hits label of 45s and country albums are also of interest. Later recordings on the Plantation House label, Nashville Sound label under the names, Now Generation and Nashville Country Jamboree is badly needed. The company was on its last legs when these were issued, and therefore not in circulation long. Please email me privately, Paul Urbahns -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
