I can never get over the fact that the composer of "Angel of the Morning" and "Wild Thing" are one in the same. It was that Chip Taylor (James Wesley Voight) who produced Evie Sands first recorded "Angel Of the Morning" in 1967 for the Cameo-Parkway label as it was heading for financial ruin. Too sad as the tune could have been a sure thing but the record company couldn't get the single pressed beyond the first 10,000 copies which had sold out.
A year later Merrille Rush (Gunst) got the song into the top ten and won a Grammy nomination.
From the album 1981 "Juice", Juice (Judy) Newton's "Angel of the Morning" reached the number four position on Billboard.
