INFO > Penned by Clint Ballard, Jr., “You’re No Good” was first recorded by Dee Dee Warwick in 1963. Later that year, another version cut by Betty Everett achieved moderate chart success. Numerous artists have covered the song since, the most successful being Linda Ronstadt’s 1974 single release, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Aswad’s reggae take from 1995 was remixed by The Beatmasters: Richard Walmsley, Amanda Glanfield, and Paul Carter.
