Re: One Less Bell to Answer(the bomb)

I read a response on youtube that Dionne Warwick informed the audience, as an intro to "One Less Bell To Answer", recorded a demo in 1963 and was paid $40.00. That story was related by someone who attended her concert.

The results were not to husband Marty Melcher's liking so that recording was shelved. If story was true, would real...
