I may have asked you this before but do you recall a version of Que Sera Sera that came out in the Summer of 1963?It was by black R and B group,something like the Five Keyes or five something?Man,it was dynamic.
You are the oldies Man of the Hour,speedy, and it is great to waddle in obscure but brilliant tunes with you.
Absolutely. A great year for music -- "Hey Girl" by Freddy Scott and "Monkey Time" by Major Lance and "That's How Heartaches Are Made" by Baby Washington and "I Know, I Know" by former Spaniels lead Pooky Hudson.
Not to mention all those Spector songs ("Da Doo Ron Ron" and "Be My Baby" etc.) and even "Denise" by Randy and the Rainbows. Oh yeah, and two of my favorite cha-cha songs, "Easier Said Than Done" and "A Walking Miracle" by The Essex. Three, if you count "Theme From Mondo Cane (More)" by Kai Winding and his Orchestra. "Memphis" by Lonnie Mack. "If You Wanna Be Happy" and "One Fine Day" and "Since I Fell For You." A great interlude between Elvis and The Beatles.
Yes, I do recall the "Que Sera Sera" version you are talking about -- may very well have been The Five Keys. Maybe The Five Royales? Nah. You could beat me any day of the week on obscure oldies, Riverman. But we do share some in common. Wasn't "Groovy Baby" by Billy Abbott on your list?
Que Sera Sera
The High Keyes
= Great song; hard to find on CD
Another great song from around then that is also very hard to find on CD:
Shake Shake Sherry
I am looking for the name and group who did a real slow, funky instrumental in the early 60's with Spanish language "call outs" during the tune. I think it charted, but cannot find the name.
