The Best Version

I have a large and opinionated family. A friend once ventured in their presence that “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye was one of the best records ever made. Our friend is not the only person who feels this way, I have heard and seen the opinion expressed several times over the years. My family averred as one, and my daughter Meg spoke up, “It’s not even the best version of ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine.” My friend said, “You don’t mean Creedence?” Meg said no, although she is a big Creedence fan, and popped up this version for our dining and dancing pleasure. It was the first version too, at least as far as being a hit single.
