This Billy Williams cover is indeed pathetic but it was the first
record I ever had of the song
I'd heard Smiley's great original of "Shame Shame Shame" not long
before via an older r&r/r&b fan of my aquaintance (and then by TV
showings of "Baby Doll" the movie in which it features) but I did'nt
have the super rare UK London single of it.
I did however come across the Williams version on UK Coral in some
London junk shop for pennies and was not impressed at all.
It was into the 70's before I finally added Smiley's original 45 to my
collection thanks to my first visit with Val Shively.
