Covers: Tell the Truth (“5” Royales song)

The “5” Royales are one of the most underrated groups ever. Several of their songs are better known by cover versions. I am going to post a series of them now. The covers, especially the James Brown version of “Think” and the Ray Charles version of “Tell the Truth” are great but the original versions are well worth your time. “Tell the Truth” was released in 1958 and followed by Ray Charles’s version in 1959.

Ringo loves the Ray Charles version.
