Lee Mallory “That's the Way it's Gonna Be”
from Many Are the Times MP3/Digital‑file Album (Sonic Past Music 2003) —The (true??) story goes how Gary Usher and Brian Wilson heard Curt Boettcher's production being recorded down the hall (in 1966) - and how they MUST go deeper with their own music.
Jimmy Griffin “All My Loving”
from Summer Holiday (CD version with add'l songs) CD Album (Real Gone Music 2012) —Jimmy Griffin (frequent lead singer of Bread altho the top 40 stations only recognize David Gates and play the softer stuff) recorded this in 1963. The two earlier covers were by The Chipmunks and Annette.
The Rolling Stones “I Wanna be Your Man”
from The Rolling Stones Singles Collection: The London Years CD Album (Abkco 2002) —First of a 3-play of very early Beatles covers. This one was actually given to the Stones who recorded it in 1963. Beatles recorded their version later.
Aretha Franklin “I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You) - demo”
from Rare and Unreleased Recordings from the Golden Reign of the Queen of Soul CD Album (Rhino/Atlantic 2007) —Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Finalized next day in New York with the Muscle Shoals personnel. Released in 1967. This is a Muscle shoals demo.
Chet Atkins “Walk Don't Run”
from Guitar Legend: The RCA Years CD Album (Buddah 2000) —("Year" indicated on this list is for release of what's played tonight - not always the original release year.)
