The Elgins – How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) (1966)

Marvin Gaye originally released the song in 1965 and had a chart buster on it in 1965. Of course to reap the benefits of Gaye’s success  there were many covers of the song released  to try for more hits on the track.

The Elgins made a great cover of HSIITBLBY — don’t you agree?  Hard to believe that the following year (1967) this great group disbanded.

I had a post last year on the Motown versions of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) ” made from 1964 – 1966. In it I mentioned there was one Motown cover of the song, by the Elgins, that I did not have a digital version of to share with you at the time.

I always keeps my promises (maybe latter than earlier) so here is the Elgins version and a poll so that you can finally select your favorite version of this awesome tune.

To refresh your memory here is the link to the original posting from 1/1/08 right here so that you can  listen again to the other three versions before you vote.

I am so looking forward to seeing what the results of the poll will be so please vote.

Musically Yours,
