Song of the Day: Swing Out Sister, “Am I The Same Girl?”

Singer Corinne Drewery, one-half of the duo Swing Out Sister, turns 63 today. “Am I The Same Girl?” was originally done by Barbara Acklin in 1968 and was covered by Dusty Springfield in 1969. Young-Holt Unlimited (featuring Isaac “Red” Holt and Eldee Young from the Ramsey Lewis Trio) did an instrumental version called “Soulful Strut” in 1969. Swing Out Sister’s version was recorded in 1992 for their album Get In Touch With Yourself. It reached #1 on the US Adult Contemporary chart and at European Dance Radio, and #5 in Canada. Here is a 1992 performance at Camden’s Jazz Cafe in London.
