Two Lovers Cover: Louise Cordet

I love Mary Wells and “Two Lovers” is one of her all-time classic joints (written by a young Smokey Robinson no less). It’s the type of song that’s so aligned with its singer that newer versions rarely if ever work well. And while “Two Lovers” fits in this untouchable category, here’s a rare exception: an outstanding cover by English pop singer, Louise Cordet, who recorded for Decca in the early-to-mid ’60s. It’s a rock version, slightly rougher, and more garage-sounding than the Wells original. Dig it below.
