The song "too late to worry" by Richard Anthony, who recorded it in French, English & Italian, was it previously recorded by some singer in English? It appears credited to Bacharach/David as songwriters in the Richard Anthony discography. Thank you.

I first heard "Too Late to Worry" when I was a teenager in boarding school in the USA in New Hampshire, where a local radio station played it constantly for about 2 weeks in either 1961 or 1962. The recording was by a girl who sounded just like Helen Shapiro (who was very popular at the time because of "Walking Back to Happiness" that had been a hit in 1961), and the recording was excellent. It was, in fact, much better than the ones by Babs Tino and Richard Anthony (singing in English), which I did not hear until later and did not like. The DJ said the recording was by a new Helen Shapiro, and I thought he meant it was Helen herself releasing a new recording, but not so long ago I got word from Helen that she never recorded the song. After the circa 2-week period,The DJ said on the air that he had to stop playing the record because the record company had withdrawn it. I phoned the radio station afterward but was told they could not tell me anything about the recording because it had been "withdrawn" and the record itself had been sent back to the company. So I never found out who the actual singer was. I contacted Hal David's company a few years ago, and the answer I received stated that they had no list of people who recorded the song. I would like to know if anyone else ever heard the recording that was withdrawn and knows who the singer was.
