The del Rio version in Mulholland Drive was nothing short of incredible.The Jay Black version, well I believe that Jay has already apologized.
Don Mc Lean's version seemed as if it was from the heart. A more chronologically correct statement would be that "Blue Bayou" is too similar to "Crying." "Crying" was released in 1961.
"Blue Bayou" was released on the immortal and fantastic "In Dreams" album--in either late 1962 or, as I recall it, in 1963.
