Your Thursday Moment of Why Didn't I Get the Memo?

The great Mark Lindsay (of Paul Revere and the Raiders) and the great Susan Cowsill (of you know who) go all Sonny and Cher on your ass.

Hadn't heard about this one until yesterday, but I think I'm gonna have to buy the CD it's from.

God, is that good. Somebody, quick! Source this version to be used under some TV airlines spot depicting departure regret and a return airport meet-up. Give me :60, :30 and :15 versions.

Nice. But I like the original better. It has more charm. And character. One of Sonny's best compositions.

This tune broke Sonny & Cher in California. "Baby Don't Go" was Number Two in Berdoo around XMAS 1964. The rest of the country had to wait till "I Got You Babe" for the breakthrough and a subsequent reissue of BDG late summer 1965 when it crept into the national Top Ten.

You'll like the rest of the CD, you no doubt know by now, it's from "Love Is Strange", an EP by "Lindsay Cowsill" Northern Tides Music 416. The running order is "Love Is Strange", "Baby Don't Go", "Because" (DC5), "Love Will Make You Smile" (Lindsay, and the only original), and "Dream Lover". You can get it at Amazon from a reseller, but they've got pix up of the item in question; you can see the musicians, and if you're willing to shell out the $20, it's advertised as having the signed card offered in the original release. eBay's got 'em, too, probably the same reseller. Here's the Amazon URL:

I've had an epiphany about Susan Cowsill. I now think she's one of the great unsung (no pun intended) voices of our time. And I'm being serious about that.

That's killer. Ms. Cowsill is a helluva singer.
