Which version of "You Just Keep Me Hanging On" do you like better?
I go for The Supremes.
...apples & oranges...light years apart...I favor BOTH!
As a son of Brooklyn. Does it get any better than the Fudge. The Supremes were for wuzzies were I grew up.
I love both, but prefer the Vanilla Fudge version.
The Supremes, no question!!! Great vocals by Diana, Mary, & Flo. The track is one of the Funk Brothers greatest moments on record IMHO. Love the instrumental mix of it on the "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown" soundtrack.
Supremes. What about Tom Jones' version?
I like the Supremes version much better.
What about the Rod Stewart version? There are tons of versions out there, I just selected the two most popular.
...or Kim Wilde.
Sorry, I was just having fun, although I must say the Tom Jones version is great. Not as good as the Supremes, but great nonetheless.
Close one! I went for Vanilla Fudge. I like Carmine Appice's drumming.
I went with Vanilla Fudge. Love the Supremes - but sometimes I tend to burn out on them
I also like Kim Wilde's recording of the song.
Where's The Party?
What about U2's version?
I can't choose either. I love the Supremes and particularly the Funk Brothers, but have also loved the Fudge's version since day one. I just mentioned the other day how the first Three Dog Night 8-track was among my first ones when I started driving in 1968, but so was that Vanilla Fudge album.
Supremes, but I do like the ballsy variant VF came up with...didn't fly the first time in mid-'67, but a year later went top ten, probably when something more psychedelic was more common on the charts. I still get a kick out of their version, though a pity it was never mixed to stereo....
I can't vote! They are both excellent in their own way. The Supremes had the perfect 60s pop hit, and Vanilla Fudge took it to another level and made a soulful psychadelic tune out of it.
I couldn't do without either one!
...you can't voat? you just did, for both!
...the LP version was an immediate hit to the hip crowd back then.yes Virginia, there is more to life than the MONO 45...
Pity there isn't a 'both' option, huh... I agree, both are killer in their fashion, for me the original packs a little more kick--and remember, the gals sound really pissed, as if they've finally figured out they've been taken for a rotten romantic ride, but can't quite let go...yet.
When it comes to 45-vs-Lp, I've no real preference, either works for me...and I'm still fond of the album, though it's yet to get its digital due. Maybe someday it gets a real 'deluxe edition'?
Just my opinion, but I'd say one has aged gracefully and one has it's date chiseled in concrete.
Try and guess which is which.(rhetorical)
...wouldn't that be grand! a possible SH/AF project! Imagine...back then it was the LP version all the way!, especially for the "experience"...
Me no likee the VF version. Soops for me!
