ONCE MORE, NEVER LET IT BE SAID….

…That I ever let go of anything (yaddah, yaddah, yaddah).

From Volume 5 of my Vocal History of Rock and Roll category, Naked Truth Edition).

I don’t know if I just missed this the first time through (if so, I must have been really out of it because I’d of sworn I looked everywhere), or it’s just been updated recently. Anyway:

Then….

“Rock Me Gently” Andy Kim: The Apotheosis of the Apotheosis. By a former Archie, of course. (Would really like some help identifying the background singer(s) on this one!)

Now…

UPDATE: Wikipedia has come through:┬áCarol Carmichael and Group/Company on harmonies….though it’s unclear if there was really a “Group/Company” or just a bunch of brilliant overdubs. In any case, staggering. She also reportedly did the harmony vocals on Albert Hammond’s “It Never Rains in Southern California.” Either would be enough for any soul to enter the Lord’s house justified.)

Because nothing was ever better than this….Literally, nothing.
