  • @, youtube comment regarding Come Back Karen by Jay Ramsey
    • “We recorded this, in the 60’s, as a parody of over the top doo wop groups…thought we were being funny. We wrote it in 2 minutes and recorded it with no rehearsal. I thought I was singing with too much angst and drama and the guys were dooing and wopping all over the place. Turns out our label heard it and released it on our next single. If you listen to it, enjoy it and know that it was meant to be fun with absolutely no put down of the groups we all loved. Jay Ramsey”
