Beautiful. Much better than the lame later version we all had too much of. Is this the original version of this tune?
This was in the middle of the pack timeline wise in the early mid 60's
Love this version. Touches of Gene Pitney in there, don't you think?
Definitely can here the Gene in it. Norro was more of producer behind the scenes guy. He hung out with Rex Allen Jr for a while. He had a real minor hit covering Only You on Mercury.
This one was quite a shock! I had no idea there was an earlier version, and had no idea it was a Boudleaux Bryant composition. Ray Stevens is Prod/Arr/Cond, so it may have been done originally for Monument?
