Tainted Love was orginally recorded by Gloria Jones in 1964 and written by former Four Prep member Edward C. Cobb. Tainted Love refuses to die.

What I can't find right away:

  • Proof that it was recorded : NL CBS 4220, June 1969 for the 7" single (CAN #1, NL #23, US #2)
  • Release information if there is any: B-side of More and more - both from the LP Blood, Sweat & Tears, NL S 63504, issued in January 1969. US chart #1 (from March) for 7 weeks and sells over 2 million copies by the end of the year, while laying the ground rules for most of the 70s rock/jazz fusion boom. ;-)
