All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
There were two distinctive phases in Terry Stafford's meteoric decade-long recording career. The first segment was catalyzed by his one dynamite hit single, a 1964 cover of Elvis Presley's "Suspicion." Stafford's early recordings were mostly punctuated by squinky outbursts from a Farfisa or Vox electronic organ. "Suspicion" was a formulaic marvel of great precision, second only to the Elvis original and a spoof version by the Bonzo Dog Band.

Recorded for Atlantic in 1973 and reissued on CD by Koch in 2007, this country-pop production album brought him some measure of success but not enough to sustain his flagging career, for after 1974 Stafford appears to have stopped making records altogether. In addition to the title track and "Amarillo by Morning," points of interest are "Big in Vegas" co-written with Buck Owens, "Shelley's Winter Love" by Merle Haggard, and a countrified third-generation cover of "Suspicion."

    A Really Great Album

    I grew up listening to Terry Stafford's "Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" album. My dad had it on 8-track and vinyl. I still have the vinyl copy, but it is almost completely worn out. That is the sign of a really great album. Terry Stafford really shows his true talents and his West Texas musical roots on this album. Songs like Big In Vegas, Amarillo By Morning, and Shelley's Winter Love were made popular by other artists, but Stafford's versions of these songs really stick out. My dad would play this album over and over again at home and in the car on a roadtrip. There is just something about this album that makes me want to play it over and over and over again. Give this album a listen. Fans of real country music will love this album.
