There are a lot of great versions of this track that first appeared in 1955. The first one here is arguably the best.

Dawn Penn first recorded You Don’t Love Me for Studio One in 1967, but then re-recorded the rocksteady original with a bouncy dancehall hit with Steely and Clevie in 1994.

Eve‘s cover with Stephen and Damian Marley is a close second. 2001.

Willie Cobbs‘ 1960 version is the version most of the covers copy. It is based loosely on Bo Diddley‘s 1955 version. This is a bluesy scorcher.

Ike & Tina

Sonny & Cher‘s version surprisingly isn’t too bad.

Bo Diddley‘s original in ’55.
