Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
AHH - a Golden Oldie from 1963!
BONUS - Our Day Will Come - Ruby and the Romantics, 1963
|"Our Day Will Come" is a
popular song composed by
Bob Hilliard and
Mort Garson, which was a No. 1 hit in 1963 for
Ruby & the Romantics.
The song's composers were hoping to place "Our Day Will Come" with an established easy listening act and only agreed to let the new R&B group Ruby & the Romantics record the song after Kapp Records A&R director Al Stanton promised that if the Ruby & the Romantics' single failed Kapp would record the song with Jack Jones. Stanton cut two versions of "Our Day Will Come" with Ruby & the Romantics, one with a mid-tempo arrangement and the other in a bossa nova style; the latter version, featuring a classic Hammond organ solo, was selected for release as a single in December 1962 and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March. "Our Day Will Come" was also a chart hit in Australia (#11) and the UK (#38). the Personnel on the original recording include Leroy Glover on Organ, Vinnie Bell, Al Gorgoni and Kenny Burrell on guitar, Russ Savakus on Bass, Gary Chester on drums and George Devens on Percussion...
