The Dells (Marvin Junior, Verne Allison, Johnny Carter, Chuck Barksdale, Mickey and Lucius McGill) recorded "(My Love Keeps On Growing) Higher and Higher" (Jackson - Smith or Davis - Miner after a lawsuit). This is arguably the original recording from their album "There Is" issued in 1967 although "Higher and Higher" was recorded years earlier as a possible single..

The Funk Brothers backed the late Jackie Wilson in 1957 and took "Higher and Higher" into the top ten.

Rita Coolidge's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher" came from the 1977 album "Anytime, Anywhere" just missed the top of the charts stalling at number two.
