Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs - Stay

Dang Pete, song was just a minute and half long... Dang, they could fill some radio gaps with that short a play time. Great song, thanks for sharing.

Like the live version better, more of that high notes.

The Gladiolas - Little Darlin

Hope I don't get stoned, but still like the Diamond's cover of the song better. Nice to know the original song though and it really wasn't changed that much by The Diamonds.

But once again, more songs that ended up being composed by a black artist and sorta whitified (my word) to appeal to a bigger audience.

In that era songs were typically short--not that short. 2-2.5 minutes.

Generally not much longer, until FM in the 70s.

Somewhere,in the back of their heads,Maurice Williams is STILL singing "Stay" to every American that grew up in the 50's.

The only song with no lyrics ever banned from the airwaves.

And this one is probably my favorite Link Wray song. Unless I am thinking about "Backwoods Preacher Man,or a dozen others,of course.

Hank "Music to slash your wrists by" Williams.

And some people STILL fail to see a connection between country music and blues.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
