When I was a kid somewhere around the early 60's I would occasionally hear my parents play records on their massive oversized floor console.

They had a mix of Herb Alpert, The Ventures, The Supremes, can't remember others, but one 45 that came to me sometime later was "Suspicion" As a kid I always thought it was Elvis Presley, I never looked at the label.

Not long ago I came across this very same song but found out it was done by Terry Stafford even though it was written for Elvis, and Terry did very well with it.

I know for a fact the record that my parents played was the Terry Stafford version because of the synthesized background. the Elvis version did not have that.

I think it was a much better version than Elvis, maybe some will disagree.

Oh...Ya, I still enjoy The Ventures, The Supremes, but Herb Alpert, not so much.

I always thought that Terry Stafford's version was better than the one by Elvis,
and I am a big Elvis fan.
I still listen to the Ventures. They have special sound to their music.

Right, the DJ's played Terry's version, because it was better. No offense to Elvis, but the production of his version just does not push the buttons somehow. Terry's version has all the hooks in place, a great record.
