R&B vocal group collectors were always talking about how great Ace's records would have been if they had a vocal group behind him. Loads of vocal groups did "Never Let You Go."

But that background is straight out of Sincerely.

So? They combined 2 great records to make a hybrid. "My Song" by Little Milton is a killer IMO. I guess I like the Ace version slightly better, but both get an 8, and the Milton is as close as we're gonna get to having Ace's version with a vocal group behind him.

When this was discussed various ideas were thrown around of which group would back him. I'm sure the Moonglows were mentioned.

My Song - Little Milton
Milton's version is right up there---only Ace's definitive original
and Aretha's superb 1968 version better it IMO.

There' were nice covers from Johnny Moore's Three Blazers,Marie
Adams,Dinah Washington and Hadda Brooks.

Hell,there was even a so-so country version from Curly Wiggins

I guess I should have kept the Nathaniel Mayer instead of dropping it for the Milton. Never did I think that the Puente would go further than the Milton. Still 2 ballots to come though, Milton is not out yet.

The Solitaires and Gospelaires will advance. The Everlys and Milton are going bye bye. Just need Jim's ballot to finalize things.
