How about posting an old record for the parade? Roll Eyes

Have it your own way. Grin

This is a lovely track by Salt Water Taffy from their 1968 album Finders Keepers (yes, that list again):

This is even older. From 1966, Lorraine Ellison's "Stay With Me" was one of the first songs I linked on this forum. It's probably my favourite soul ballad--what a voice!  Roll Eyes

They have songs about everything, don't they. I was looking rather apprehensively for a song about reassurance and lo and behold there are several, including this cool example by Cartoone, a late '60s Scottish group with a fascinating if rather sad story (see link). "Let Me Reassure You" from their 1969 self-titled debut album must be one of the tracks to feature Jimmy Page on lead guitar:

Heard this Roy Orbison classic played live yesterday by an excellent trio during the open day held at the farm that provides our weekly organic fruit and veg.

Ranked as the #3 song of 1959 by Billboard, it's been popping into my head all summer! It's infectious.

It is indeed infectious! Lloyd Price recorded one of my all-time favourite r&b 45s, "Lawdy Miss Clawdy". Dating from 1952, it's more rock and roll than r&b to these ears. That's Fats Domino on piano (see PJ Riverdale's comment):

That's a great record, JK! Another one that I'm a big fan of is "Just Because". I first heard Lennon's version, then I tracked down Larry Williams' version, then, finally, Lloyd Price's original. I love them all.
