OK, after much consideration I'm going to go with:


With apologies to Aretha and Dionne
YouTube - Judy Collins - Someday Soon 1969



YouTube - Stevie Wonder - Blowin' In The Wind (1966)

And as an added bonus - two of the decade's biggest presences working together
YouTube - Tom Jones with Janis Joplin
