Stay With Me

Lorraine Ellison



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

When Frank Sinatra canceled a session in the studio due to sickness, his 60 piece orchestra found themselves free. The songwriter Gerry Raganovy stayed up all night to readapt this song for an orchestra. The result was a symphonic Soul classic that even though it was only a minor hit at the time, is recognized today as one of the classic '60s songs.
Singer-songwriter Lorraine Ellison grew up singing Gospel, having led a family group out of her home in North Philadelphia. Between 1966 and 1973, she recorded 3 albums and few other tracks for Loma Records, the "Soul" division of Warner Brothers, but she never achieved the fame her talents deserved. She died of ovarian cancer in 1985. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for above 2)

"Let me smell the moon in your perfume..." It took a rough mix and an extra verse, but Steve found his "calling card" song, which is always the encore.
