Leland musician, "Darlin' Why You Treat Me So?" (on USMississippi01)
NOTES [47 words]: The USMIssissippi01 track was apparently written by the singer. In the 1950s doo wop style the verse lines use a I-VI(m)-IV-V chord progression which the singer follows here; for a popular 1950s example listen to The Five Satins' "In the Still of the Night" (Ember E-1005, 1956). - BS
