Papa was a Rolling Stone
I would be ever so grateful if you can help! In the 80s I had a remix version of Papa was a Rolling Stone, sort of like a Roger & Zapp version but not Roger & Zapp. I had it on a tape that was stolen from my van, never heard on the radio again after one time on WBLS (NY). Does anyone remember?

Thanks!

There was a remake of "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" in 1990 by Was Not Was. Could that be the one?

thanks pete, but i don't think that's it. this came out earlier than 1990, probably early-mid eighties. it was kind of like if you did a steve 'silk' hurley mix of the original temptations song with a roger&zapp type rendition of same. still, i will have to check out the was not was remake, and i thank you for telling me about that one.

Mamachills,

You're very welcome! When I heard the Bill Wolfer sample I thought that it was the correct song because of the robotic voice.
