I wonder how often/seldom this happens?! A.J. Croce just released his album of covers and "Ooh Child" is a single from that too. I'm with A.J. on this one.  Smile

i'll go with AJ's vocals over Paul's for sure
Paul should have done this years ago (1990s-early 2000s) when he still had a decent voice


as for the same songs by different artists at the same time...
used to happen more frequently in the 1950s-60s more so than today because professional songwriters used to write songs and artists would sing them, not writing their own material.

some examples on the UK charts back in the day: (im sure MH could add examples from the US charts also)

Unchained Melody: May '55 Al Hibbler, Jimmy Young, Lee Baxter

Stranger In Paradise: June '55 Tony Bennett, Four Aces, Tony Martin

Yellow Rose Of Texas: Oct '55-Jan -56 Mitch Miller, Ronnie Hilton, Gary Miller, Stan Freburg

Robin Hood: Jan '56 Gary Miller, Dick James

Young & Foolish: Feb '56 Edmund Hockeridge, Ronnie Hilton

Blue Suede Shoes: June '56 Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley

Walking Hand In Hand: Aug '56 Ronnie Carroll, Jimmy Parkinson

Wayward Wind: Aug '56 Gogi Grant, Tex Ritter

Green Door: Dec '56 Frankie Vaughan, Jim Lowe

** plenty more examples i could have given also Ruby**

gotta add...
this trend continued, especially on the UK charts during that period of music but did also occur on other Western charts throughout the sixties also because there were lots of Beatle and Dylan covers in the charts within weeks of them releasing new material
seemed to trail off in the 1970s because every artist seemed to be writing their own material and each artist had their own sound as music diversified and i cannot really recall duplicates of songs around at the same time after that since but im sure there would be examples if i looked deep enough
