    It was first released in 1961. Find out which label it was put out on and that might give you a clue. Could have been whatever rhythm section The Drifters were using at that time.

    Stand by Me was released on the Atlantic label, and if I remember correctly, it was the same bass player that recorded with the Drifters.
