Thanks, Paul, for a wonderful personal backstory to Terry's video!
Seeing this Suspicion performance and the Dick Clark interview took me back. Where Dick asks him about an upcoming appearance at the Paramount in NYC. I saw Terry Stafford at that performance at the Paramount, a whole bunch of stars, Terry did only two songs, Suspicion and his follow up I'll Touch A Star.
Terry Stafford - If "Since I Fell For You" was my favorite song from January 1964, "Suspicion" was my favorite song from Easter-time 1964. When I first heard this song in early 1964, I thought it was Elvis singing it and indeed, he did record a version of it for his 1962 album Pot Luck . I've got to admit that I hear Terry Stafford's version surpassing Elvis's, and it may be one of the few times The King may have given the nod to another artist's cover of one of his songs.
Jonathan Stout - Brought to my attention by Kingston Crossroads member and Kingston Trio Fan, Terry Collins, comes a gifted jazz guitarist who I'd not heard of until now. Jonathan specializes in 1930s and 1940s jazz guitar stylings of the greats of the period but is a superlative guitarist in his own right! Please see The Song Button to hear Jonathan Stout and his band The Campus Five do a selection from their most recent album Spreadin' Rhythm Around .
The Song Button - This week's Button features a selection from Jonathan Stout And His Campus Five.
Thanks For Listening and Watching & Folk On In Good Health!
