Johnny Daye : Stay Baby Stay

My wake up song this week is "Stay Baby Stay" sung by Johnny Daye. Johnny Daye was mentored by & brought to Stax Records by Otis Redding, in spite of this, Stax Records never really promoted this gorgeous soul ballad & it is not as widely known as it deserves to be. It is a classic production (I think by Steve Cropper) with the most beautiful string arrangement, slow groove and a perfectly judged vocal performance from Daye. Hope you enjoy it ,lots of love tt
