    I stumbled upon this song while re-perusing the documentary, Echoes Of The Sixties (1978).

    I think it's g r e a t, apologies to the mega-talented, Linda Ronstandt.

    Yeah, I like their version. Shame they had a few hits then just seemed to be forgotten.

    I read in a book about the British Invasion that they were considered the 2nd best live band in Liverpool after the Fab Four.

    The first real song I learned on guitar as an adult.

    Liverpudlian, for sure. Beatle-like. Their version of You're No Good" was well done, but NO ONE can match Linda Ronstadt's voice.

    I like it. Well done but as Gary says, no one can match Linda Ronstadt's incredible voice.

    Brings back memories of many a drunken Karaoke rendition, along with Twist & Shout. The poor audience!! The surprising thing was being asked "will you come back next time?" Used to take about a week for my voice to recover.

    SBJs is a good one. But for me the Dee Dee Warwick original always will be best of show. Love the guitar solo and its sound.

    It IS very Mersey Beat for sure. Good version. Doesn't "Grab Me" like Linda's though... But it is what it is!
