    Yes, according to my research they were actually released on the same day. But since the original version was with lyrics from the film Unchained as we discussed before and Baxter's version is basically an instrumental with only "Unchain me" as lyrics, I decided to list it this way. For example, for The Righteous Brothers version to be considered a cover of Les Baxter's, you would have to believe that they came up with their own lyrics and they just happened to be exactly the same as Hibbler's version.
