With the recent passing of John E. Carter (August 21), whose wonderful tenor made every Dells record a memorable experience, I thought I would put up one of their biggest hits, a track they originally recorded for Vee-Jay as a tribute. "Stay In My Corner" was an example of how versatile they were - running the spectrum from Doo-Wop in the mid-1950's over to R&B, Soul and Jazz. They were an amazingly talented group and Carter had the distinction of being inducted in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame twice - once for his earlier efforts with another memorable group, The Flamingos and later with The Dells.

RIP - you made some beautiful music and the world is better for it.
