Regular readers may remember that I 'collect' versions of that great old song Tennessee Waltz.

Probably got more than 30 now.

The male version that stands out is Sam Cooke's !

He does it in swinging sort of Bobb-Darin-but-with-soul style with some rhythmic, tight brass in the backing.

Perfection.

The best female version is by country singer Lacy J Dalton !

Some merely sing it, some really feel it, but Lacy lets the song take her over completely !

The way she belts out the 'I remember the night' bit is a joy to behold !

Great stuff !

Hey Colin, do you have Billy J Kramer's version? It rocks

Brian Wilson produced a great LP on his wife and sister in law. It was a self titled LP called Spring (American Spring in the UK). TW opens the LP in fine style. Murry Wilson (Brian's dad) claimed he actually wrote the song but was robbed of his credit. Unlikely but who knows.

I have really gotten into the old Outlaw Country lately. Kind of strange since I have never really been a country fan other than select artist.

I think Waylon, Wille, Hank, Merle and the rest really blazed the trail for the Country music explosion that produced the mega stars of today.
