Oh No Not My Baby

March 3, 2011

MP3: Maxine Brown- Oh No Not My Baby (1964)

MP3: Aretha Franklin- Oh No Not My Baby (1970)

Here are two great but very different versions of a classic track written by Carole King and husband Jerry Griffin. Not many ladies can hold a candle to Aretha, but Maxine comes damn close.

There are many many other covers of this track. Listed below is each track with links to youtube in order of good to worse.

Dusty Springfield

The Sensations (a reggae version)

Carole King

Linda Rondstandt

Rod Stewart

Manfred Mann

The Partridge Family


Here’s a previous post I wrote about Maxine. By the way, she’s in her 70s and still going. So is Aretha obviously. Boy, when she kicks the bucket it will be a national day of mourning.
