Chris Cornell Records ‘Stay With Me Baby’ for Vinyl #LISTEN

Chris Cornell has released a version of the 1966 soul classic ‘Stay With Me Baby’ for the ‘Vinyl’ soundtrack.

Cornell told Vulture, “I was very honored to be asked to record a version of ‘Stay With Me Baby’ for Vinyl. I get to pay tribute to Terry Reid, whose version of the song has been a favorite of mine for many years, and be included on a great soundtrack with an amazing group of artists.”

‘Stay With Me Baby’ was originally recorded by Lorraine Ellison and produced by writer Jerry Ragovoy after a last minute studio cancellation by Frank Sinatra. Sinatra’s no-show meant a 46-piece orchestra ha already been commissioned and available for work that day.

Warner Brothers Records gave Ragovoy the session free of charge as it had already been paid for by Sinatra.

Ellison’s ‘Stay With Me’ (sometimes called ‘Stay With Me Baby’) only reached no 64 on the Billboard chart and she never went on to achieve great success. However, the song lives and grew over the years as it was recorded by Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, Kiki Dee, Duffy, Mary J Blige, David Essex, Natalie Cole and now this new version by Cornell.

Australia’s Karise Eden performed the song for her finale performance of The Voice Australia. La’Porshe Renae also covered it on the season final of American Idol on March 31, 2016.
