You know a song is popular when it’s covered over and over and over again. Many don’t realize “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” was ORIGINALLY recorded by [lastfm]Smokey Robinson[/lastfm] & [lastfm]The Miracles[/lastfm]. While [lastfm]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm] recorded his version next, [lastfm]Gladys Knight & The Pips[/lastfm] released THEIR cover first. Then, in 1970, our KOOL Artist Of The Week got in on the action. [lastfm]Creedence Clearwater Revival[/lastfm] recorded an ELEVEN minute version of the song for their “Cosmo’s Factory” album.
