I knew that Wayne Cochran is the original writer of 'Last Kiss' which I first heard from The Cavaliers withJ. Frank Wilson and I was aware that Cochran recorded it by hisself BUT I never knew that he has recorded it so many times! And an A-PLUS bonus is Buddy Leach's 'These Arms Of Mine' of fame by the great Otis Redding but Leach did the first version!
