OH NO NOT MY BABY

Latest update on 19/03/2015

Artist: Shirelles
Author: Gerry Goffin/Carole King
Label: Pricewise
Year: 1964

Probably even older, rejected at the time. Released on their album Swing The Most ('65) on Pricewise, a midprice Scepter/Wand sublabel and re-issued on Ace collection Lost And Found ('95). Stan Greenberg, son of Scepter boss Florence Greenberg, found it when Maxine Brown, a glamorous model, needed a good song. Maxine's voice was added to the basic Shirelles track, with Dee Dee Warwick on second voice.
