The Hearts with Al Sears Orchestra – Lonely Nights (1955)
Following a few days mainly listening to ear bleeding drum and bass/hardcore, I decided to take a detour on Christmas Eve to catch up with my three, four CD, collections of Rhino Records’ “The Doo Wop Box” ….
Within a few minutes, I had stumbled upon this track which I had never heard before but which, immediately, warranted elevation into the pantheon of “thebestmusicofalltime”!
Stately, relentless, plaintiff stuff. Killer vocals, a spoken word interlude and the sax keeping everything in line. It gets no better.
