Comparing "Baby That's Me"
Today is the eleventh anniversary of Jack Nitzsche's passing. While working on related posts for my Facebook page, I came across "Baby That's Me" by The Fashions, written by Jackie DeShannon and Jack Nitzsche, and released on the Cameo label in 1964. As the YouTube uploader's comments explain, this release was quickly followed a few month's later by Lesley Gore's version. Then, a bit later, by Britian's ultra-fine girl group, The Cake, who put out a magnifico version in 1967. So, for your listening pleasure and convenience, I've posted all three versions here accompanied by the notes supplied by the YouTube uploaders of each.
