Daddy’s Home” is a famous song by American doo-wop group Shep and the Limelites. The song was written by the three members of the band, James “Shep” Sheppard (1935–1970), Clarence Bassett (1936–2005) and Charles Baskerville. The group recorded the original version of “Daddy’s Home” on February 1, 1961, and it was released on Hull Records in March 1961 with the B-side being “This I Know”.

“Daddy’s Home” reached no. 2 on the Billboard popular music chart in May 1961. It was kept from No.1 by “Travelin’ Man” by Ricky Nelson.

Later songs by the band were not as successful as “Daddy’s Home”, but still sold well.

I first heard this by Jermaine Jackson in 1972, and Cliff Richard released it as a single in 1981, when he received the  Daily Mirror Readers Award: Outstanding Music Personality of the Year.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
