LEE DORSEY: 'Rain Rain Go Away' (Stateside)
Lee Dorsey. It's in the same old vein and it'll be a hit. Sometimes I wonder if he can go on making records that all sound the same. It could be dangerous. Still I think he can probably do a few more because there's nobody else doing it — he's the only one. It just doesn't matter. Mind you, it will if he makes another five like this. This is good enough though.
