That's the song you wanted for the last dance of the evening with your sweetie, close and slow. Didn't get better than that.

First time I have seen it played, also. Although, I have heard it innumerable times and it is a true classic.

Some songs just can't be topped. Here's one that does, recorded right here on Lookout Mtn Ga.:

I met Santo and Johnny once more by accident than anything else. I was stationed at Nellis AFB at the time and it was either late 62 or early 63 as I recall. I was stuck with this blind date blonde and not getting along too well. We were off the main drag and here in a little out of the way club they were playing away. Got to talking with them during one of the breaks and that hag I was with was hitting on them something awful. They didn't like her any more than I did so they called a cab and sent her home. :lol: We talked music and had a few drinks and had a pretty good time. Couple of really nice guys that were not stuck up at all.
I never much messed with the main drag clubs when I was stationed in Vegas. Found some really good entertainment though in the off the wall places. Frankly, I really hated that town back then. Still do.

Sleepwalk. I appreciate how Beck was respectful
of the masters; he didn't try to re-write these great songs. He just paid tribute to them. - DixieBoy
Quoted for truth. I just listened to several versions of the original, and now believe that it can't be topped. Others have done it well, but originals are where it all started.

You know, I really feel sorry for today's kids. They'll never have anything near that good.

Loved the music. I noticed that most of the entertainers of that era also dressed like they were ladies and gentlemen.
