Update: Perspicacious reader/listener Fitzall (Hi, OneSize!) commented on this coincidence by saying…

I noticed that in the Somebody’s Image ’67 version of “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” (Dylan), the intro used is “The Same Old Song”. Weird.

You’re not wrong there, Fitzbo.

Now, before we get to the full versions of the other songs I’d like to say that what I hear from The Spindles isn’t a case of creative license. I think it’s more a case of non-creative theft.

Here are the full versions:

Four Tops – “It’s The Same Old Song (1965) (mono)
