"... released in 1953, and Sun's first certifiable hit. Penned Johnny Bragg and Robert Riley,
both inmates at Tennessee State Prison, the solemn, haunting doo wop
vibes were enough to garner the group, all incarcerated inmates,
frequent day passes out of prison walls to perform across the
state...including numerous engagements at the governor's mansion. The
vocal prowess and good behavior on day trips would be enough for most
group members to be pardoned by the governor. Elvis Presley often said
the Prisonaires were his favorite vocal group and even covered "Just
Walking in the Rain"
on occasion. The proof is in the pudding on this one."- Third Man Records
