Subject: RE: Help: Who sang 'What's it all about Alfie?'
Some sources indicate that the the film as originally released in UK in early 1966 did not contain the song - the original soundtrack was totally instrumental by Sonny Rollins.   Later in 1966 for US Release and UK RErelease the song was added - definitely initally recorded by Cilli.   Cher subsequently recorded it later in 1966 (but I'm not sure if it was used for the US version of the film) followed by a few others, and Dionne Warwick's big hit version came in 1967.   That's the one I remember - could have sworn hers was the movie version, but my memory is clearly not what I remember it being.
