Suspicion [Collectables]by Terry Stafford
Terry Stafford became one of only a few artists who managed to "steal" a hit from Elvis Presley by covering one of his album tracks -- in this case "Suspicion" from Presley's album Potluck. You wouldn't necessarily realize from that track the extent to which Stafford is a Presley sound-alike, but he is in the same category of great Elvis imitators such as Vince Everett and Ral Donner. "Suspicion" was Stafford's biggest hit by far, but he enjoyed two other hits on the Crusader label in 1964. "I'll Touch a Star" was a big one on the adult contemporary charts, and "Follow the Rainbow" missed the Top 100 by one position. Suspicion is a reissue of Stafford's 1964 album, and it includes the title track and "I'll Touch a Star" along with a number of other compositions by songwriters from Presley's stable. The one quirky flourish that keeps these songs from sounding just like Elvis is the rinky-dink keyboard that plays throughout.
