In 1957, when the Diamonds has their monster hit, “Little Darlin’,” I was just about old enough to be a Boy Scout, but I remember the song well. To be a hit a song back then it had to sell a shitload of records (i.e. those flat, black things with grooves). To see the same guys re-assemble after forty-seven years and sing their hit tune speaks to me on many levels.
The Diamonds, forty-seven years later.
For those of you who, like me, are old enough to remember the Diamonds, or who give a crap about any of this, the Diamonds are the same guys who sang “The Stroll,” which was also a dance.
I know how to do The Stroll. Do you?
