Baby Don't Go – Sonny & Cher and Friends is a compilation album released by Reprise Records credited to Sonny & Cher. While signed to Reprise in 1964, the duo recorded and released various unsuccessful singles under the name "Caesar & Cleo", before moving to Atco Records in 1965. After the massive success of their single "I Got You Babe", Reprise combined their old recordings with other numbers by the Righteous Brothers singer Bill Medley, The Lettermen and The Blendells in this compilation album credited to "Sonny & Cher and friends".

Baby Don't Go – Sonny & Cher and Friends was released in 1966 and reached #69 on the U.S. album charts.

The title track "Baby Don't Go" was first released in 1964 and was a minor regional hit. Then following the duo's big success with "I Got You Babe" in the summer of 1965, "Baby Don't Go" was re-released by Reprise later that year and became another huge hit for Sonny & Cher, reaching the top ten in the U.S. and doing well in the UK and elsewhere, going as far as reaching number one in Canada.[2]
