"Did you ever hear The McCoys version of Stagger Lee? I think it's the definitive version of that song."
My friend, the late great Chris K. said this to me one afternoon at the shop. I hadn't heard it at the time but once I did, I couldn't disagree with him. That baby rocks. I offered a similar thought back to him by proclaming Sam Cooke's "Frankie & Johnnie" the absolute best version of that oft-covered classic.
