YOU'RE NO GOOD * BETTY EVERETT * STATESIDE 259 * UK
Fabulous Soul cut full of simmering dark and moody atmosphere, this, along with records like Harlem Shuffle and Down Home Girl are exemplars of the sound that I most associate with the music heard down The Scene at the height of the Mod era.
Although it was intended for Dee Clark, the original, in a much punchier slightly latinised version, was recorded by Dee Dee Warwick for Jubilee. Many other artist have recorded the song including a Reggae version by Marcia Griffiths, for Coxsone Dodd (see below).
