Paul Millward in the West Midlands asked for: 

I can't break this habbit - Lee Garrett (Harthon)

Don't know much about this specific track Paul, but I know Lee Garrett later left the Philly label Harthon and became writer for Motown, which is no surprise as this early 1965 record is stylistically so Motownish. In fact it predates Motown records of the same style so there may be truth in the rumour that Lee actually wrote "I can't help myself", the prototype Motown record, credited to H-D-H of course.

Dominic in Austin Texas asked for:

The dam busted - Carl Hall (Loma)

Dominic, you wanted to know if this is as good as You don't know nothin about love - well, a different tempo, but still a very good record, I think.
