The Moonglows: When I’m with you (1956, Chess 1629)


The Moonglows were always among the classiest acts in the field of R&B harmony vocals. Here ‘s one of my absolute favorite doo wop tunes ever. Their Chess 1629, July 1956 single became their only two-sided charter. “When I’m With You,” with its chime harmony, sent kids swooning to the tune of # 15 R&B. Written by Harvey Fuqua and Dallas (Bobby Lester’s real name), it is acknowledged by Harvey as being one of his favorite Chess sides. “See-Saw” was the flip.


About Der Landstreicher

Ιδού η αληθινή Ταϊτή, δηλαδή: πιστά πλασμένη με τη φαντασία μου. (Πολ Γκογκέν και Σαρλ Μορίς)............... Είμαστε εμείς οι ονειροπαρμένοι τρελλοί της γης με τη φλογισμένη καρδιά και τα έξαλλα μάτια. (Γιώργος Μακρής).............. Und wollt ihr wissen, wer ich bin, ich weiß es selber nicht, ich irre so durchs Leben hin, weiß nicht, wo ich zu Hause bin und will es wissen nicht. (Landstreicherlied, Arnold Waldwagner)...........
