The first time I heard this song, I was on my way home after a too-much-of-everything weekend. Driving along an empty highway late at night, I came into range of a beach music station just as the DJ cued "A Quiet Place." It was the perfect song for the occasion. It's nice to be able to hear yourself think once in a while.


"Cry Baby," AKA "Cry Cry Baby,"  was Garnet Mimm's biggest hit. Janis Joplin covered it, but I've never cared for her rough, histrionic version.

Gorgeous gorgeous music. There is nothing like smooth early-60's soul (of course there's nothing like 50's Doo Wop or 70's Philadelphia International soul or...well, you get the picture).

Brooke Benton-YES!

Smooth early 60s soul, 50s Doo Wop, Philly International soul-it's all "Some Kind of Wonderful." The Drifters song, not the other one by the same title, of course.
