Hurt So Good (Susan Cadogan)

Susan Cadogan released a cover version of the song later that year called "Hurt So Good", which featured bassist Boris Gardiner and the Zap Pow horns. It was released to little effect in Jamaica on Lee Perry's new 'Perries' record label, but was released in the UK by Dennis Harris's DIP International label, and topped the UK Reggae Chart. Magnet Records picked up the single and it went on to reach the top 5 of the UK Singles Chart, with Cadogan flying to London to promote the single, including a television appearance on Top of the Pops.
