All These Things

First recorded by Art Neville (1962).
Also recorded by The Uniques (US #97 1966).
Other hit version by Joe Stampley (C&W #1 1976).

From the wiki: “‘All These Things’ was written by Allen Toussaint (under the pseudonym of ‘Naomi Neville’) and was first recorded by Art Neville in 1962.

“The most successful chart hit version was recorded by country artist Joe Stampley in 1976, peaking at #1 on the US Country Singles chart – almost a cover-of-a-cover, because a decade earlier, in 1966, Stampley had first recorded a cover of the same song with his band, the Uniques, but which barely cracked the Billboard Hot 100.”
