You Really Know How to Hurt a Guy - alternate version
« on: June 10, 2017, 08:35:26 AM »
 I think Jan selected the wrong version of this tune for single release. Granted, 3:44 was a bit long for early 1965 (pre "Like a Rolling Stone") but "You've Lost That Loving Feelin'" is a bout the same length.

 IMO everything about the alternate version is superior, especially Jan's vocal.

 Agreed. Jan's vocal on the aternate take is better.

I have been amazed at the number of versions Jan produced. Look at Norwegian Wood or Girl You're Blowing My Mind. And evidence of how he worked and worked at getting the sound and balance of sounds right over the years.
In themselves all great versions - makes you wonder what finally determined the final release. Further confirmation for me of Jan's skills as an arranger and producer.
