Stay in My Corner…for a long, long time

dellsThe Mighty Mighty Dells are by far the most enduring music group to ever come out of Chicago (Harvey, to be precise), performing with their original line-up since 1952.  “Stay in My Corner”, their 1968 pop and R&B smash, was one the longest singles ever released at the time, breaking the 3 1/2 minute barrier established by the 45rpm single.  In fact, it was the first RIAA certified million seller single to clock in at over six minutes (the 45rpm version clocks in at around 5 minutes).  The track is loping, larger than life, and beautiful.  Here’s a 1975 live version of the track (check the collars).
