Prior to Chuck Jackson's version, producer Luther Dixon cut another one with different lyrics on Tommy Hunt (Lover). Jackson's being far superior, the Hunt version went straight in the bin, although part of his original singing is still audible at the end of Chuck Jackson's version. If you want to compare, contact Phil Milstein, originator of a mail-order series of originals cd's called Before They Were Hits. (PO Box 146706 Boston MA 02114 USA).
