Maybe different backing track take? Same day for sure. Too on this this to do it two separate times?

This sounds like the same backing track as the Lemon Pipers but with different vox. Same BT was also used on the Lennon Sisters version.

I guess that little progression is in "Johnny Thunder" by The Kinks as well.

Not an unprecedented practice at the time: cf. "Psychotic Reaction," by the Count Five and Brenton Wood, respectively, as just one example. Or the various early-Sixties artists on Scepter/Wand who all sang over the same Luther Dixon backing tracks.

Funny thing, you've played songs by Marmalade in your show before?? This was their big one.
  Sat. 2/25/17 12:37pm DG:

Saw "Fences" last night and yeah....you can tell it was a play. It was well-done (as were the performances) but it's very talky & isn't "opened up" that much. August Wilson actually wrote the screenplay years ago (he died in '05) but it didn't get filmed until now (he insisted on an African-American director & I guess Denzel had enough clout to get it done). I'm mixed on "La La Land"---the last 40 or so minutes are great but it's a little clunky until then. Great score but I still think they sort of miscast it---and Emma Stone should really eat something.

ha ha, well, La La is just tender enough with some flaws, and i think denzel was really good - it just doesn't take it further than the play. i can appreciate that, but a film needs to be something more, for me.
