T he story goes that they auditioned their first smash hit “Mockingbird” to Sue label boss Juggy Murray on the pavement outside a New York restaurant, but in 1963 publicity departments loved to run tales like these. Whether it’s true or not, Murray certainly put up the money up for the song to be cut and hired veteran arranger Bert Keyes to oversee the session. He put the 45 out on his Symbol subsidiary and watched it race up the charts to #2 R & B and #7 pop eventually selling well over a million copies. The simple repetitive nature of the song showed the nursery rhyme origins that Inez and Charlie had used, but the hookline, and the way Inez soared and swept over Charlie’s more mundane melody gave it a very special charm.
