1960s Compositions recorded by various artists and performers
Many ’60s songs were not only recorded by the original writers but also by many other groups and performers. Some, more successful than others.
Several cover versions were massive hits and out-sold the original artist’s release. I will endeavour to research some of my favourite songs here on ‘Yellow Paper Suns’, highlighting not only the very well-known records but I’ll also zoom in on the long-forgotten and ignored 45s and LP tracks.

NILSSON – “One”
Harry Nilsson‘s introspective 1967 song “One” has led me to investigate several other versions recorded in 1968 / 69 including Bobby Vee, Three Dog Night, Al Kooper, Johnny Farnham and blond soul bombshell Chris Clark.
VAN DYKE PARKS – “High Coin”
