I bought “Please help me I’m Falling” on 45rpm in 1960, I was 14 and along with all my friends we were buying rock and roll 45’s but for some season this country song just caught my attention and I really liked it, to say all my friends made fun of me would be a understatement, but I never said a thing, I just smiled at them and quietley thought “go f__k yourself, I still have that 45 and still play it.
