Thread Name: Lyr Req: When You Were Sweet Sixteen (J Thornton)
Subject: RE: When you were sweet sixteen - original
Excuse me.... I'm not trying to recreate an old sound at all. The original song is much more superior to the dreadful thing created by Al Jolson. If you listen to a lot of the post Jolson recordings many only have one verse ... some even (barbers shop types) only have the chorus.. then they trail off into something else. Surely a decent song like this is worthy of better treatment.
