I've never found one. Been looking for years. I've been curious as to the chronology of Mickey and Sylvia's relationship with Bo Diddley songs. Did they hear "Love Is Strange" while touring with Bo, record it, and say, "OK, Bo, what else do you have?" Did Bo write "Dearest" especially for them, hoping for similar success they brought him with "Love Is Strange," or did he even write it at all? The way songwriting credits were applied back then ("Love Is Strange" was credited to his wife, Ethel Smith), is it possible he didn't actually write it, but was given a credit as part of a deal for delivering "Love Is Strange?"
