(You Can) Depend On Me


Miracles 011959 You Can Depend On Me, B-side of Tamla 54028, The Feelilng is So Fine

(You Can) Depend On Me (Berry Gordy, Jr., Smokey Robinson)

The first of two recordings of the song was released on the Tamla label in September 1959 as the B-side of The Feeling is So Fine, T 54028. That single was withdrawn and months later replaced with the issue of Way Over There on 22 February 1960. Way Over There featured a new recording of (You Can) Depend On Me on its flip side, but was nevertheless issued with the same catalog number as The Feeling is So Fine, which failed to chart.

While the dreamy Depend On Me resembles in style and arrangement many 1950s vocal harmony group recordings, it also anticipates the Miracles’ 1965 hit Ooo Baby Baby.
