  1. This is another one I've never heard before. I checked my CHUM 1050 book and it didn't chart here, though I see it made #1 R&B on Billboard.

    1. In those heady "classic rock" (i.e., 50s rock'n'roll) days, as much as I loved all the "teenage" tunes on the radio, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, et al, what really sent my pre-pubescent soul were the "adult" songs the DJs slipped in by such as Sam Cooke, Dinah Washington, Della Reese, Sarah Vaughan, and later, Ray Charles. This is one of my all-time favorites. . . .
