Yes. I recall the inordinate amount of time it took to finally track down the Percy Sledge version on 45rpm... Somebody sent it to you on your birthday, right ?

Before, I think. But yes, Ally came through in the end. It was ridiculously hard to get though. Great song, whoever's singing it.

Thanks for that link, Davy.

Seriously outstanding version, and a welcome change of pace.
