i was surprised to find a Richard Chamberlin album in a thrift store featuring a version of "(They Long to Be ) Close to You" from 1964. Turns out he recorded it first.

I knew it was Burt ... but I always assumed he wrote it for them. Well there you go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 2:30pm Otis Fodder:

Ha, yes. Classic RSM with Jim Reeves. Nice that you are playing this.
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 2:31pm Martinibomb:

Close to you is one of my faves to play on Piano. I haven't been practicing much other wise I'd bust it out today
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 2:31pm worldsworstrecords:

I can't resist singing kids!
Avatar Wed. 7/17/19 2:31pm Mr Fab:

R Stevie Moore is pretty legendary around WFMU. I think he even had a show here at some point. I think perhaps even Irwin has played drums for him?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 2:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Back in the mid-70s we had a downstairs neighbour who used to play Jim Reeves full blast on a Sunday. She was about 100 and an old bag. lol.

Long time FMU connections for RSM & Irwin and Bingo Gazingo and on and on. :)

yep: I said it was recorded in 59 but not released until a decade later
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/17/19 2:34pm Otis Fodder:

Yep, hooked up by RSM's pop, the legendary Bob Moore from what I reckon.
