I hope I am not treading on any toes here.
Threads in the Outerwear section have been morphing wildly off topic into music threads, so it was suggested that we decamp to here.
I grew up in the 50's and 60's, and there were sure alot of folks wearing hats and overcoats in those days, and it is so long ago, now, that it will be historical in context to many FLers. So I hope this thread is seen as being in context with the forum.
Anyhow, here's a guy who started singing in the late 50's and stopped quite abruptly 45 years ago this month, when he was killed, along with most of his backing band (although not the one you see here, which is essentially Booker T & the MGs), in a plane crash on a flight to Wisconsin. If you like this, please post YOUR faves here

I'm not able to view the embedded videos in these threads due to the age of my computer, so I'll just ask that people be careful not to post material that isn't in harmony with established Lounge standards. And please keep posts in line with material that has definite roots in the Era: no acid rock, no psychedelic rock, no hippy-dippy stuff, no punk, no heavy metal, no rap. If it gets too far afield from what I consider to be Era-relevance, I reserve the right to close the thread -- we're a bit stricter on Era-orientation in this part of the Lounge than in other parts.
As you were, then.
