“Quarter to Three” – Gary U.S. Bonds (1961)


“‘Quarter to Three’ is a popular song, adapted and expanded from ‘A Night with Daddy ‘G’ – Part 1′ (Legrand LEG 1004), an instrumental by the Church Street Five, which was written by Gene Barge, Frank Guida and Joseph Royster, and sung by Gary U.S. Bonds. … The single was recorded with very rough sound quality (compared to other records at the time). Producer Frank Guida has been quoted on subsequent CD reissues that his production sound was exactly what he wanted it to sound like. Noted British producer and columnist Jack Good felt compelled to devote his entire Disc magazine column to praising the ‘fuzzy, muzzy, and distorted’ sound of the U.S. Bonds hit release. …”
