Smooth R&B singer Sammy Turner's classy remakes of the standards "Lavender Blue" and "Always" lit up the pop charts in 1959. Signed to Big Top Records and given lush production by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Turner also hit with "Paradise" in 1960. He turned up on Motown later in the decade. ~ Bill Dahl
