pp arnold the first cutIsn't it amazing how different a song can sound when it's performed by two different artists? Not a fan of Sheryl Crow (even if we do go to the same Starbucks sometimes), I never enjoyed the radio hit The First Cut is the Deepest, but while reading about Steve Marriott I learned about the nearly forgotten original sung by dynamic and gorgeous PP Arnold and written by Cat Stevens (whose own version is also pretty great).

The artist, who counted Mick Jagger among her champions and played next to Jimi Hendrix and The Who, had a huge hit with the song and continues to record.
