Covers: Release Me

“Release Me” was written in 1949 as a country song and has been recorded in different styles.  Here are some of the many versions that show how durable the song is.

There was a hugely popular version by Engelbert Humperdinck in 1967 – not my type of music but you can dig it up.

Eddie Miller (1949) – the original version

Little Esther Phillips (1962)

Johnny Adams (1968)

Lyle Lovett with k.d. lang (2012)  (Make sure to check out the Release Me album cover)
