“Strawberry Letter 23” The Bonus Beats Thursday Remake Retake” [VIDEO]
Today’s “Bonus Beats Thursday-Remake Retake” features one of my all-time and I’m sure one of your all-time classic R&B songs: “Strawberry Letter 23” by The Brothers Johnson.
Released in 1977 and featuring Lee Ritenour doing a guitar solo, “Strawberry Letter 23” held the #1 position for 1 week and was certified gold.
Now before you make a choice of which is the better of the two, I’d like for you to really listen to both versions and then decide whether or not the remake should never have been remade.
