Angel Of The Morning – Evie Sands / Billie Davis

“Angel Of The Morning” is one of those jinxed songs. Two of the best versions were the first two recorded – Evie Sands in the US and Billie Davis in the UK. Both went by unnoticed. Evie’s version fell foul of the record company going bankrupt so the first US hit version was claimed by Merrilee Rush.

Billie’s version was meant to be her comeback after a run of incredibly bad luck career-wise but it was one of her own backing singers who pinched the song and had the hit – PP Arnold.

Nothing against Merrilee or PP, of course, but I much prefer Evie’s and Billie’s versions.

And then in the 80s, Juice Newton had a huge hit with it but that’s another story.
