Sammy Turner

Sammy Turner Sounds like a guy everyone knew in high school, Sammy Turner. Sure.

He actually had 5 hits on the charts, including Always which reached number 19 late in 1959, and which may or may not be the Irving Berlin song. See if it’s on YouTube, and let me know.

All his hits were on Big Top, the same label that Del Shannon recorded for.

Sammy Turner:

Lavender Blue- “I’ll be your king,” sings Sammy, “you’ll be my queen.” Romance as a form of royalty. Dilly dilly. There is one cover that I know of, by Bobby Vee. From the summer of 1959.
