The Corsairs - "Smoky Places" (b/w "Thinkin' (Maybe She's Changed Her Ways)") (Abner Spector) Tuff single 1808 Peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 10 on the Hot R&B Singles charts upon release in December 1961. Produced by Abner Spector and arranged by Sammy Lowe.
The Corsairs were an American doo wop ensemble from La Grange, North Carolina.
The group consisted of the three Uzzell brothers, Moses, Jay, James and their cousin, George Wooten. Initially they performed as The Gleems, and toured the East Coast, where they were overheard by Abner Spector. Changing their name in 1961 to The Corsairs, they released their first single, "Time Waits" b/w "It Won't Be a Sin" on Smash Records. Switching soon after to Tuff Records, they released "Smoky Places", which became a nationwide hit after being picked up for national distribution by Chess Records, hitting #10 R&B and #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1961-'62. The follow-up, "I'll Take You Home", peaked at #62, and they continued releasing singles until 1964, none of which managed to hit the charts.
"Smoky Places" was used in the 1994 movie, 'There Goes My Baby', and was also used in the 2006 Sopranos episode "Mayham."
LYRICS: Meeting in smokey places Hiding in shadowy corners Dancing where no one knows our faces Sharing love stolen in the night In smokey places Oh oh how I cried On your wedding day Like, like my heart would break How you regret your wedding day Now paying for your bad mistake Mmmmmm Meeting in smokey places Hiding in shadowy corners Oh we are dancing where no one knows our faces Sharing love stolen in the night In smokey places Some sunny day He will set you free Free to be my life Some sunny day Sweetheart, he'll set you free We'll be, we'll be satified Meeting in smokey places Hiding in shadowy corners We just keep dancing where no one knows our faces Sharing love stolen in the night In smokey places Sharing love stolen in the night In smokey places Sharing love stolen in the night In smokey places (fade)
