From October of 1965, we have Dee Dee Warwick doing Gotta Get A Hold Of Myself on the Blue Rock label, a subsidiary of Mercury Records. Dee Dee, the younger sister to Dionne and the cousin of Whitney Houston, never attained the fame of her relatives, but, as this recording shows, the young lady from New Jersey could belt it out with the best of them. We flipsters really dig that recurring guitar riff that creeps into the brain like a musical worm.
The boys actually heard this song for the first time whilst opening for Dee Dee's sister, Dionne in 1965 on a UK tour with the Searchers.ReplyDelete
