Prince – Betcha By Golly Wow
Published: 5 years ago
“Betcha By Golly, Wow” is a song written by Thom Bell and Linda Creed that was originally recorded by Connie Stevens as “Keep Growing Strong” on the Bell Records label in 1970. But the composition scored a hit when it was released by the Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics in 1972.
Another cover version was released from Prince’s (his stage name at that time being a symbol with no known pronunciation,) 1996 album Emancipation. Prince had stated that he always wanted to release a cover version but his record company, Warner Bros. Records, had not permitted it. The CD single was released in two formats in the UK, one with a picture sleeve and one with an orange cardboard sleeve that included a picture disc and a mini-poster.
