Sounds like Jimmy Day on the Everlys records around that time.

Joe - more coffee needed - it's Margie Singleton, not Melba Montgomery.

I like the tune, it has kind of a "George and Margie go to Vegas" vibe.

Thanks, Mark! My apologies to Margie. She sings the heck out of that tune. I'm sure I looked right at it and still wrote Melba Montgomery, oh well.

Marco, interesting that it's Walter Haynes. He has a great reputation as a '50s session guy, but I certainly don't know his sound. I love the bluesy thing he's doing on this tune, and that they let him do it!

Thanks guys,
Joe

Most of the steel on the Everly Brothers' early albums was by Jimmy Day but at least one LP 'Both Sides of an Evening' had Walter Haynes.
