Shirley Ellis was the performer. This is a real R&B number, and sounds great. It's a concert recording, not unlike Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips."

I must say, though, that the Hollies really rock on their version of this song. It's wonderful, though, to hear the original artist perform it and think about the changes the Hollies made to the arrangement.

I think that it's worth a little effort to seek out Shirley Ellis' version for true die-hard Hollies fans.
