    They often are!

    I saw a quote some time ago - someone saying they didn't realise that Kylie Minogue was doing a cover of Love Unlimited when they heard this song.

    I bet a hell of a lot more didn't realise that Love Unlimited were covering the Apollas! :eek::cool:

    Or even Felice Taylor who had the first release - March 1967 (USA), April 1967 (UK)

    Very much so. Apparently it was written (co-written) for her by Barry White, which obviously is where the Love Unlimited connection comes in.
