You Won't Forget Me

Chris Warfield You Won't Forget Me 45 (Liberty, 1957)

It's cold, it's dark, and a storm is coming in: It is the right time to spring another noir song on you. Don't know much about this one other than it is the b-side to a rather fruity tune called "Three-Dollar Orchid". No need to post that one, as it stinks. "You Won't Forget Me" is a winner from the start. The dark horns and the way the beat steps in and stops and starts back in, a kind of retarded cha-cha-cha, is the perfect set up for Warfield's warbling croan, all drenched in lovely reverb, that expands while the song faints away. Enjoy.

I think that this kind of cha-cha-cha is a bolero.

Thanks, great gem!
Awesome. I love this stuff.
