SONG FOR TODAY: Them - Baby Please Don't Go

Brilliant track from years ago that still sounds as vibrant and exciting today as it did back then. I first heard this on the soundtrack to 'Good Morning Vietnam', and have loved it ever since. "'Baby, Please Don't Go' is a blues song first recorded by Big Joe Williams in 1935. It has become a blues and rock standard, and has been recorded by many artists. In July 2010 the online music guide Allmusic listed 1,082 separate entries for releases of the song. The band Them, fronted by Van Morrison, released "Baby, Please Don't Go" as the A side of a single in late 1964. Boosted by the B side, a ditty entitled "Gloria", the single became their first hit, reaching No. 10 on the UK Singles Chart. Rhythm guitar was contributed by a then little-known Jimmy Page, however he did not play the lead guitar on the track. It was re-released on the Deram label in 1973..."
