Picture vs. Text[edit]

The picture at the top right of the page is the 45rpm, "Stay," by the Four Seasons.

Yet underneath, the text describes it as "Peanuts," on the A-side, and "Goodnight My Love," on the B-side.

The actual record has "Stay" on the A-side and "Goodnight My Love," on the B-side. I have the Vee-Jay 45 in my collection, so I'm pretty confident about the information.

I would like to change it, if no one has an objection.

Producer[edit]

friendly fyi

I feel this is important add to article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stay_%28Maurice_Williams_song%29

I did not add credit without permission - but I saw an original copy of Stay – and it was produced by Jan Tillman Hutchens

That credit is not posted on story I feel it is important addition.

If someone has one of the original 45s – it includes credit – and I saw it - and am 100 percent sure - long story.

"Stay" by Maurice Williams was produced by Jan Tillman Hutchens (Later became investigative news reporter WJBF-TV Augusta, GA.) single bears his name. Questions please call Greg Peterson 1-906-401-0109 – wiki username: Yoopernewsman I want copy of original single

You don't need "permission" to add things to Wikipedia as long as you respect the policies and guidelines. I have added it to the infobox (but it would have been nice with a reliable source. – IbLeo(talk) 05:27, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I have found no reliable sources that credit Jan Tillman Hutchens as the producer. Indeed, the original label for the single - here - shows no producer at all. This article at Allmusic refers to Williams working with producers Phil Gernhardt and Al McCullough at Herald Records, and it's a reasonable assumption that they were involved. So, unless you can provide reliable sources that refer to a different producer - and not just your own recollections - your information should not be added to the article. I'll remove it from the infobox. Ghmyrtle (talk) 10:29, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Fair enough. I didn't bother looking into this, and your research shades enough doubt on this to justify the revert. I will leave it to Yoopernewsman to come up with some reliable sources—if he can. – IbLeo(talk) 12:07, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
For what it's worth, Jan Hutchins was a producer and owner of Tigre Records in Indianapolis in 1963-64 where he recorded several acts including Rick Fortune, The Reflections (not the Detroit group), and Mona Thomas. He mentions then that he was one of three producers on the Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs "Stay" session. I was familiar with him and while I have no reason to doubt the veracity of this statement I also can provide no other citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by LarryinLA (talk) 18:47, 10 March 2011 (UTC)173.55.73.50 (talk) 18:34, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
There are indeed references to Jan Hutchins (with an i not an e) co-producing the record, here and here. But I'm not sure they count as reliable sources, and it would be useful to have some more background and explanation. Ghmyrtle (talk) 21:45, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Yoopernewsman (talk)The people mentioned are the same person Jan Tillman Hutchens is correct spelling - and he is the same person on that WONN link. I have noticed that "Hutchins" is a more common spelling on internet spelling suggestions - but it is with an "e" - including his obit. I have always called him "Jay." Jan later changed his name to Jay Mann (Not legally changed just for public), while he was an investigative TV reporter (WJBF TV-6) and became the publisher/editor of several weekly newspapers known for their investigative stories - and then Jay spent his final 7 years or so as a political consultant and those candidates credited Jay (in newspaper interviews) with getting them elected. Jay was one of those people who was a force of energy, whose presence is felt in a room when he enters. Would do anything for a friend or stranger - but if you were corrupt - you better go in the opposite direction. (I digress) If he had been rich, Jay would possible have been called "eccentric" but he prided being poor because it proved to everyone he was honest - and not on the take like many in the town (Augusta) whose streets and politics he knew better than everyone including the police. By the way it would have entertained Jay immensely - this talk about how to spell his name and lack of the necessary reliable source. I have made several very minor edits to my comments trying to figure out how to properly time stamp this message. I apologize.--~~Yoopernewsman~~--Greg John Peterson 20:18, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Playing time[edit]

The text and box disagreeon the lenght of the recording: Is it 1:38 or 1:37? 09:40, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
