Chris Clark aka The White Negress may have had only one hit with Motown (Love's gone bad, 1966) but she sure was a sight when touring with the Motown artists: platinum blond 6 foot tall lady. Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday was first recorded but not released by her in 1966. It was released as a single by Stevie Wonder in September 1969 becoming a #7 US and #2 UK hit for him. Stevie had some vocal problems at the time and actually the song was recorded already two years earlier. He also released an Italian version of it: Solo te, solo me, solo noi.
Chris went on to co-write Diana Ross' Lady sings the blues and got an Oscar nomination and later became an executive for Motown film and television division.
