Angel of the Morning
1967 Chip Taylor
Originally recorded in 1967 by Evie Sands. Her version was doing well, but two weeks after it was released, her record label, Cameo/Parkway, went bankrupt. Chip Taylor (incidentally the brother of actor Jon Voight) who wrote and produced this, was devastated when he found out that the label could not promote it or even make more singles of it. A few months later, Merrilee Rush's version became a hit for another label.

There'll be no strings to bind your hands
Not if my love can't bind your heart
And there's no need to take a stand
