Description

Sophisticated, big band rhythm and blues this maybe but the story goes that when Brown, an uptown club singer of big band ballads, first heard Teardrops… she thought it too sharp a change in direction. Persuaded by her bosses at Atlantic to give it a go, it went on to be the first of five rhythm and blues No 1s she had with the label. It went on to be covered by Ray Charles, among others. The flip is a more uptempo jump blues with the killer line: ‘I’ve seen so many men it’s like looking through a fine-tooth comb.’
