There are two versions of this song. #1 was recorded May 1964 in London and released in the U.S. only as a single and on the 12 x 5 album. #2 was recorded November 1964 at Chess Studios in Chicago and released in the UK in January 1965 on the Stones` second UK album, and later on both the Big Hits and Hot Rocks compilations. Here the song is sequenced as version #1 but the CD source is for version #2, which I prefer.

According to Bruce Spizer, the song`s title is a pun on the town of Ryde, off England`s coast on the Isle of Wight. When the song was first released as a single, the movie "Help!" had yet to be named after the song that had yet to be written. Instead, the 45`s label read, "From the United Artists Release `Eight Arms To Hold You`," which was the movie`s working title.

Van Morrison`s "Gloria" became so well known over the years that it`s strange to think how few people heard it in spring 1965 when Them`s original version barely scraped the bottom of the national charts for one week. A year later "Gloria" was covered by The Shadows of Knight, whose version made it to the national top 10. Them`s version was re-released but didn`t really compete at that time. Now hardly anyone remembers the cover version! The cover was contrived to "clean up" the horny urgency of the original so it wouldn`t be banned by some radio stations, notably WLS in Chicago. As you can hear in the samples, a key lyric was changed from "She comes to my room" to "She calls out my name."

Otis unforgettably sings, "Good God Almighty, I love you, I love you" as this great soul ballad fades out. But only on the stereo version, which was recorded during sessions for the "Otis Blue" album months after the mono single was released. The versions are different recordings, not just different mixes. You can recognize the single in a list without hearing it by its shorter length, 2:49.

Otis Redding`s original version of "Respect," a plea from a traveling man for his woman to treat him right "when I come home," is a top-drawer Stax-Volt song with a typically strong arrangement and vocal. However, as Redding famously said, "that little girl done stole it from me." Aretha Franklin`s cover, with an even better arrangement, a few pointed changes in lyrics, and a bravura vocal performance, achieved one of the great pop recordings of the century. Often called a feminist anthem, Aretha isn`t pleading for respect, she`s declaring and demanding what she deserves, including sexual satisfaction.
 
Sample 1: Respect - Aretha Franklin
 
Sample 2: Respect - Otis Redding

Although written by John Phillips, this track was first recorded with Barry McGuire singing lead over The Mamas & The Papas` backup vocals. At John`s request McGuire`s lead was replaced by Denny Doherty`s, and a flute solo added to the otherwise intact original arrangement. And a classic was born.
