Still not the one!

There are many decent versions of Stranger on the shore by Acker Bilk but the one that hit big in the 60s has a distinct sound that triggers a flood of memories in your brain. I suppose it is a Pavlov type of thing but who cares, when you hear the original it causes those memories to unlock. Imitations do not have that effect. You would think record companies would have figured it out by now. Unfortunately this is still not the one.

two things

released in 1961 with "Hey Jude" on it . . . . . . plus, I don't think this is the original "Stranger on the Shore" . . . . . and of course the pompous "Mister" before his name . . . . . . . not much has changed in 40 years . . . . .

Stranger on the shore

Thank you Captfantastic. You're 100% correct that this is not the original. I looked up Acker Bilk with Leon Young string chorale and it is the original. Thanks!
