Hello, stranger
Seems so good to see you back again
How long has it been?
Seems like a mighty long time
Seems like a mighty long time

Oh, my, my, my, I'm so glad
That you stopped by to say hello to me
Remember that's the way it used to be
Seems like a mighty long time
Seems like a mighty long time

Oh, I, if you're not gonna stay
Please don't treat me like you did before
Because I still you love so
Oh, seems like a mighty long time
Oh, seems like a mighty long time

Oh, my, my, my, my, my, my
Oh, it seems so, seems so good to have you back again
Oh, how long, how long has it been?

Oh, you know, you know it seems so good, baby
How long has it been?

Oh, seems like a mighty long time
Yes, it does

Seems like a mighty long time

Another cover band.  Lacks originality 



Unlike your band, amirite? Do you have a link to something original you've done?

Hubba Hubba...!
My latest crush - move over Norah Jones... Simply a great cover!
Believe she did this on Darryl Hallโ€™s show and killed it.
Very nice cover.
this is a nice cover from somebody who doesn't normally like covers. 

Nice revival of an old favorite.....

I LOVE  BOTH  versions!!
I'm just gonna sit back, cross my arms and close my eyes for a few minutes. Be back with you after this is over. 
What a joy to hear Samantha Fish on RP! I have enjoyed her music for a few years. Great talent!
shoo-bop, shoo-bop my baby...
Barbara Lewis was amazing. this is a bit pale but nice tribute

The bass line on this song is a killer, it sets a strong groove that everything else hangs off of.  With the trumpets and the twangy guitar, I'm reminded of some Mowtown songs and that general era of music.

Just bumped this from 8 > 9...always knew she was a killer guitarist but this cover really just shows how smooth her voice is too...every time it comes on, I gotta turn up the volume.
Check this against Queen Latifah's also excellent

I Agree completely!  
OK, Google: Mary Wells. She made some really GREAT MUSIC and she had to overcome many health & personal obstacles to pursue her career.  But, she had absolutely NOTHING  to do with this tune!

Wrong!  Are you NOT capable of using GOOGLE?

WRONG!  Originally done by Barbara Lewis. Google it! It was written by Barbara Lewis, and released by her in 1963, and became a big hit!
She does a nice cover on this. 

maybe because she is also playing the guitar.  There's a syncing there.

Whoah, that was really something... Made me want to hear it again, too. Thanks, RP! She's truly got her game down... Can't wait to see her again; hope it's real soon!

I will have the exquisite pleasure of seeing Samantha playing live tonight opening for and playing with the legendary Buddy Guy on his Damned Right Farewell tour at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA.  Buddy is last man standing on the South Side legends slate.  Don't get no better. 



Lived in Vienna for over 20 years and loved Wolf Trap. Quite a venue to go and see live shows.
Sorry but this puts me to sleep compared to the original. And is she slightly flat at the end of some of the lines?

Want a decent cover version?  Listen to Yvonne Elliman's version!

Funny, maybe a photoshop edit problem?  Here's a pic of her feet and they look fine to me.  I'm still at an 8 on this one....call it an 8.5 with a possible round up one day.

I think she can just do something with that foot that most humans can't do.

No Barbara Lewis.

I rarely find fault with the music played here...  And yet this is one that I felt went too long as well.   Great vocals and really good groove.  The song however is dated.
Thank you RP for playing this great song!
Discovered a new great artist, it's long between theese days.
Googling around, plays different music styles, check out e.g Bulletproof
& I'll Be Here In The Morning
Aaaand, see that she's going to a have a concert next spring nearby, I'm buying tickets!
Great!

The '63 Barbara Lewis original still breaks my heart.  Samantha's cover is really good and most welcome.



A touch of Amy Winehouse in her voice and delivery. I like. 

Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!


Who originally did this tune?   Barbara Lewis in 1962? ...Samantha does a great job!
And she's a PRS guitars artist! 
Well done, Ms. Fish... 
Really enjoy a cover that contributes to the original, adds something interesting, without taking away from the spirit of the writing.  This does...would listen again...

Although I found this version interesting, it does not compete with original by Barbara Lewis...IMO ;-)

Imitation may be the best form of flattery, and a sure bet to advance mediocrity,
But can it advance the spark divine inspiration?

Thanks B&R for introducing me to another great artist.

Remembered the original tune, but not the title.

So nice to hear something from someone her age, that isn't pop! She's got really good voice/control. Very nice on the eyes AND the ears! 


Yup! Enough so for an 8 rate on initial hearing. Great add, *William*!!

Wow!  What an amazing cover of the Barbara Lewis classic!
