1978

USE TA BE MY GIRL * THE O'JAYS * PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL 6332 * I

With a 1950s Doo Wop flavor this late 1970s Soulful mid-tempo ballad was thought to be a nonstarter by not only the writers and producers Gamble and Huff, but by The O'Jays themselves, but what do they know, the record went on to sell over a million copies and became the groupís biggest selling single!  

And something of an international hit too, if this Italian picture sleeve copy above is anything to go by, and it's Reggae cover by Ronnie Davis (see below).
