For your listening pleasure, I present the original recording of the Shirelles singing "Baby It's You." This version is the one that hit the charts in 1961, rising as far as #8 on Billboard in December of 1961. I've seen at least one request for the original on other YouTube versions of this song by The Shirelles, so I dug deep into my collection and found this gem. This is the original version released on 45 single.

I think this version is far superior to all of the remakes I've heard, including those by a later grouping of The Shirelles. Singing lead, Shirley Owens (later Alston-Reeves)' voice is hot, and as a result, this version just smolders and smokes in my humble opinion! Enjoy!

I own no copyrights to this song or to the photos used, and realize no monetary gain from posting it on YouTube. It is strictly for everyone's listening pleasure. It's also my first attempt to create a video for YouTube, and I will welcome any constructive criticism.
