Here we go again!!

Yes its's not only the new football season (hooray!!)---PROPER
football I mean----but it's also time to kick off in a BRAND NEW
All-Singing All-Dancing SIngles Battle!!

This time.......

THE 1959 BATTLE OF THE SINGLES!!!

And as is indicated in previous posts we open with a pretty lengthy
Preliminary Round ----this is because we ended up with 742 entrants in
the battle and therefore a whole lotta 460 of them need to do battle
in this opening round in order that 230 winners go into Round One
proper which will therefore start with the normal 512 contenders

Because this is such a large amount of match ups to vote on (more than
most Battles we've had so far tho the 1960 Battle did have the same
number of contenders in its Preliminary Round) I've therefore set
aside a whole TEN DAYS for this round to run so THERE IS PLENTY OF
TIME TO VOTE AND THERE'S NO RUSH FOR YOU TO COMPLETE!!!!

The relevant snippets (see below) will be posted in viable batches
over that time so anyone who wants to can vote as they are posted and
still be well in time to submit a final voting tally.

The site lets you vote for as many or as few match ups as you wish to
deal with at any one time so please take your time.YOU CAN RETURN TO
THE SITE WHENEVER YOU LIKE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE (during the 10
days) AND ADD AS MANY (OR AS FEW) VOTES PER VISIT AS YOU WISH!
________________________________________________________________

THE DEADLINE FOR VOTING IN THIS ROUND THEREFORE WILL BE
MIDNIGHT (EST) WEDNESDAY 26TH AUGUST
________________________________________________________________

PLEASE! Make allowance for this closing time in the time zone where
you may happen to live and PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ANY VOTES AFTER THIS
TIME!

DOUBLE PLEASE!!! MAKE SURE YOUR VOTES ARE CORRECT BEFORE PRESSING
"SUBMIT". WRONGLY CAST VOTES WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE ALTERED

My random number generator has chosen the titles to compete in this
opening round from the "lesser" records in the contest--this means the
more minor hits and the non-hits----and it has also made the required
230 match ups

As always you may vote for one single in each match up or you can
abstain in any match up you choose.

Snippets of all records involved in this round will be posted at the
usual spot.Nearly everything will get posted (at the rate of aprox 46
songs per day). There's a very few I don't have sorry!

As in the previous contest to vote or to register to vote please go to


http://MarcDashevsky.com/battle

Don't forget to log in using your personal log in ID (don't have
one?---no problem!---see the web site for details)

Please follow the instructions at the site,thanks!

PLEASE do not apply for voting ID unless you actually intend voting.

Yeah I know this sounds goofy but there are always a few people who
seem to think that doing this is a good idea but it just wastes
everyones time when no votes are ever forthcoming.

When completed you are welcome to post your votes here (you can "cut &
paste" them in one go directly from the website after you have
submitted your votes)---a few added comments accompanying your votes
are particularly welcome since I think a lot of the fun of these
Singles Battles for many of us here is getting some discussion of the
records and artists involved

Results will be published here THURSDAY 27TH AUGUST

All winners will advance to Round One proper.

In the event of any ties in this round my vote will be ignored so
creating a clear winner

Okay,without further ado here are the 230 matchups in this round!!

records included
Post by Roger Ford
***** Ike Turner - Box Top - Cobra 5033
The Senators - Tafu - Bristol 1916
I like Ike!
Post by Roger Ford
The Hot Toddys - Rockin' Crickets - Shan-Todd 0056
***** Slim Harpo - Buzz Me Babe - Excello 2171
Harpo can always be relied on
Post by Roger Ford
Clyde McPhatter - You Went Back On Your Word - Atlantic 2038
***** The Channels - The Girl Next Door - Fire 1001
Sacriledge to vote against Clyde but he started sliding about here
Post by Roger Ford
***** B.B King - The Woman I Love - Kent 525
The Chordettes - No Other Arms No Other Lips - Cadence1361
No chance here for the "Lollipop" ladies
Post by Roger Ford
***** Wilbert Harrison - Cheating Baby - Fury 1027
Bobby & The Orbits - Felicia - Seeco 6005
Decent Wilbert followup
Post by Roger Ford
Johnny O'Keefe - It's Too Late - Liberty 55228
***** Ron Haydock & The Boppers - Be-Bop-A Jean - Cha Cha 701
Not bad RAB effort by Haydock & co
Post by Roger Ford
The Knockouts - Darling Lorraine - Shad 5013
***** Neil Sedaka - I Go Ape - RCA 47-7473
This Knockouts thing seems very ordinary to me so I'm going with Neil
meets Jerry Lee :)
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Five Royales - I Know It's Hard But It's Fair - King 5191
Little Bill & The Bluenotes - I Love An Angel - Dolton 4
One of the very best things the Royales did on King
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Spinners - Richard Pry Private Eye - End 1045
Jack Scott - Bella - Carlton 504
Not one of my favorite Jack Scotts whilst the Spinners is really
infectious!
Post by Roger Ford
Bobby Day - The Bluebird The Buzzard And The Oriole - Class 241
***** Henry Mancini - Peter Gunn - RCA 47-7460
The original "Peter Gunn" and one of the very best (tho Duane's is up
there too)
Post by Roger Ford
Mickey & Kitty - My Reverie - Atlantic 2046
***** Jimmy Stewart - Rock On The Moon - Eko 0998
Don't have the Mickey & Kitty but remember it. OTOH Stewart has a good
RAB here
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Chariots - Gloria - Time 1006
Lloyd Price - Won'tcha Come Home - ABC Paramount 10062
No,its a different song :)
Post by Roger Ford
Billy Grammer - Bonaparte's Retreat - Monument 403
***** Bo Diddley - The Great Grandfather - Checker 924
No problems here for Bo I'd imagine
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Impalas - Fool,Fool,Fool - Cub 9022
Gene & Eunice - Poco Loco - Case 1001
This is my favorite Impalas track & IMO the best side of the hit
single
Post by Roger Ford
***** Jerry Lee Lewis - Little Queenie - Sun 330
The Platters - Wish It Were Me - Mercury 71502
Chuck has the original & best but Jerry does good with this song too
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Students - My Vow To You - Note 10019
The Clovers - Old Black Magic - United Artists 174
Recorded for Poplar (its on the LP) but subsequently purchased by UA
this was the first Clovers single on the label (before "Love Potion
#9").Having said all that I don't like the song much by anyone. The
Students get the highest marks here
Post by Roger Ford
***** Chan Romero - The Hippy Hippy Shake - Del-Fi 4119
Spectors Three - I Know Why - Trey 3001
I think just about every fledgling UK beat group & their brother did
"The Hippy Hippy Shake". It never put me off the song,still like
Chan's original
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Crests - I Thank The Moon - Coed 515
Elmer Bernstein - Staccato's Theme - UK Capitol 15101
One of my fave 50's TV shows was John Casavettes in "Johnny Staccato".
Sadly Bernstein comes up against a Crests side I like better
Post by Roger Ford
Johnny Cash - The Little Drummer Boy - Columbia 41481
***** Larry Bright - Mojo Work Out - Tide 006
I don't like Cash's awkward version this Xmas song at all. Come back
Harry Simeone all is forgiven :)
Post by Roger Ford
Johnny Horton - Johnny Reb - Columbia 41437
***** Ray Charles - I Believe To My Soul - Atlantic 2043
One of the very best "B" sides in the entire contest
Post by Roger Ford
Sarah Vaughan - Misty - Mercury 71477
***** Paul Marvin - Hurry Up - Ron 322
Tho Sarah's is okay there's really only ONE version of "Misty" for me
& Mathis won't appear till Round One.
Post by Roger Ford
The Tassels - To A Soldier Boy - Madison 117
***** Rockin' Bradley - Lookout - Fire 1007
Pretty good R&B number here by the Rockin' Bradley
Post by Roger Ford
***** Gene Vincent - Wild Cat - Capitol 4313
Harry Belafonte - Turn Around - RCA 47-7491
Like the Belafonte but so far my pop favorites are hitting r&r or R&B
things I like better. Not vintage Vincent by any means but it has
merit
Post by Roger Ford
The Edsels - Do You Love Me - Roulette 4151
***** Lonesome Sundown - Gonna Stick To You Baby - Excello 2163
Cool blues number here from Sundown on the nearly always reliable
Excello imprint
Post by Roger Ford
Clyde McPhatter - I Told Myself A Lie - M-G-M 12780
***** Joe Turner - Got You On My Mind - Atlantic 2034
That's two votes againsat Clyde
Post by Roger Ford
***** Don & Dewey - Farmer John - Specialty 659
Hershel Almond - Let's Get It On - Ace 558
No it's not the rare original of the Marvin Gaye song :) But Almond
has a decent RAB number that's outclassed here by D&D on the original
of this oft recorded number
Post by Roger Ford
Chet Atkins - One Mint Julep - RCA 77-7684
***** The Revels - Dead Man's Stroll - Norgolde 103
If you're wondering why "Midnight Stroll" isn't in the contest well
here it is---under its proper original title. And a terrific number it
is too
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Nite Riders - Lookin' For My Baby - Sue 719
Sparks Of Rhythm - Handy Man - Apollo 541
It's not "Women And Cadillacs" but Doc Starkes & Co recorded a decent
enough tune for Daddy Juggy here. I really don't like the draggy
"Handy Man" original---roll on Round One and enter Mr Jimmy Jones!!!
Post by Roger Ford
Duane Eddy - Some Kind-A Earthquake - Jamie 1130
***** Tiny Topsy - Just A Little Bit - Federal 12357
Topsy here with the original of the song that will also turn up later
in the more famous Roscoe Gordon version
Post by Roger Ford
Roy Orbison - Almost Eighteen - RCA 47-7447
***** The Mystics - So Tenderly - Laurie 3038
Neither of these do anything for me. I flipped a coin
Post by Roger Ford
***** Larry Dowd - Pink Cadillac - Spinning 6009
The Dee Cals - Stars In The Blue What Should I Do - Co Ed 1960
One of the best later RAB offerings came from Larry Dowd & The
Rocketones. Both sides are well worth hearing
Post by Roger Ford
***** Johnny Burnette - Me And The Bear - Freedom 44011
The Centurys - Take My Hand - Fortune 533
Burnette in transition to Liberty here but still with a little of that
Coral sound. Pity the song isn't better tho
Post by Roger Ford
***** Buddy Holly - Crying Waiting Hoping - Coral 62134
The Frantics - Fog Cutter - Dolton 6
Fairly mediocre Holly but the best thing on offer here
Post by Roger Ford
***** Larry Williams - She Said Yeah - Specialty 658
The Isley Brothers - I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door - RCA 47-7537
One of Larry's best (I guess Jagger thought so too :) . I hate the
Isleys song by anyone (especially Eddie Hodges)
Post by Roger Ford
***** Little Richard - All Night Long - Specialty 670
Harold Burrage - Crying For My Baby - Vee Jay 318
Just about LR's best of the year and the Burrage is not too shabby
either
Post by Roger Ford
The Note-Torials - My Valerie - Sunbeam 119
***** Eddie Cochran - Somethin' Else - Liberty 55203
Always a favorite by Cochran!
Post by Roger Ford
The Platters - Where - Mercury 71502
***** Aubrey Cagle - Be-Bop Blues - Glee 100
"Where" was banned and never released here (its lifted from a
classical piece). Cagle gets my vote,nice RAB record by a nice guy who
I corresponded with for a year or so back in the late 60's
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Olympics - Private Eye - Arvee 562
Titus Turner - We Told You Not To Marry - Glover 201
It's the Olympics for me over Turner's answer to Lloyd Price's "I'm
Gonna Get Married"
Post by Roger Ford
Billy "Crash" Craddock - Don't Destroy Me - Columbia 41470
***** Tony Orlando - Ding Dong - Milo 101
Not THAT Tony Orlando this one is black. And has a pretty decent
doowop number here
Post by Roger Ford
***** Big Bob - Your Line Was Busy - Jaro 77003
Lee Andrews & The Hearts - I Wonder - Casino 110
By their standards the Lee Andrews is pretty ordinary. I always dug
that Big Bob number on the Top Rank subsid ("Jaro" = J. Arthur Rank
Organization" geddit?)
Post by Roger Ford
The Ebonaires - Love Call - Lena 101
***** Lightnin' Slim - Sweet Little Woman - Excello 2160
Lightnin' strikes twice!
Post by Roger Ford
***** Bo Diddley - Oh Yeah - Checker 914
Jimmy Clanton - My Own True Love - Ace 567
Bo versus Jimmy Clanton....what a difficult choice :)
Post by Roger Ford
Connie Francis - You're Gonna Miss Me - M-G-M 12824
***** Sheriff & The Ravels - Shombalor - Vee Jay 306
One of the best slabs of gibberish ever committed to wax!!
Post by Roger Ford
Professor Longhair - Cuttin' Out - Ron 326
***** Jimmy McCracklin - The Wobble - Mercury 71412
Has to be McCracklin here (there's a much better Longhair coming up
later!)
Post by Roger Ford
The Interiors - Darling Little Angel - Worthy 1008
***** Guitar Shorty - Ways Of A Man - Pull 301
If you don't know this Guitar Shorty be sure you check it out before
voting!
Post by Roger Ford
Linda & The Epics - Gonna Be Loved - Blue Moon 415
***** The Five Trojans - Lola Lee - Edison International 412
Found a mint copy of this Trojans in a London street market way back.
Loved it ever since
Post by Roger Ford
Chris Connor - Flying Home - Atlantic 2017
***** Paul Buskirk & His Little Men - Nite Life - RX 502
Vocal on the Buskirk is by some wannabee named Willie Nelson. Think he
wrote it too. And he sounds damned good as well!
Post by Roger Ford
***** James Brown - Good Good Lovin' - Federal 12361
The Flamingos - At The Prom - End 1046
Soul Bro #1!!
Post by Roger Ford
***** Jesse Allen - Love My Baby - Duplex 9003
The Five Satins - Skippity Doo - First 104
Continuing his run of pretty good (but highly under rated) 50's
records here's that man Jesse Allen again
Post by Roger Ford
***** Richard Berry & The Pharaohs - Have Love Will Travel - Flip 349
The Casinos - My Love For You - Casino 111
Going with Mr Berry here
Post by Roger Ford
The Atmospheres - The Fickle Chicken - Lin 5023
***** George Fleming - I'm Gonna Tell On You - Fleming 501
Good country rocker from Fleming who had his own label too I think
Post by Roger Ford
***** Slim Harpo - Late Last Night - Excello 2171
Freddy Fender - Holy One - Duncan 1000
Another good 'un from Harpo
Post by Roger Ford
Pat & The Satellites - Jupiter C - Atco 6131
***** Chris Kenner - You Can't Beat Uncle Sam - Pontchartrain 8068
Here's Kenner on a decent outing way before "I Like It Like That"
Post by Roger Ford
***** Ron Holden - My Babe - Nite Owl 10
The Clicketts - Because Of My Best Friend - Dice 93
Sorry Ed,I like that Clicketts but this IMO is the BEST side of
Holden's hit single (before it was on Donna label BTW)
Post by Roger Ford
Myron Lee - Baby Sittin' - Keen 82104
***** Norman Fox & The Rob-Roys - Dream Girl - Capitol 4128
And this is the best side of the Rob-Roys only Capitol outing (tho
"Pizza Pie" is rather yummy too)
Post by Roger Ford
***** Shirley & Lee - When Day Is Done - Aladdin 3455
The Revels - Talking To My Heart - Norgolde 103
Probably the last really worthwhile Shirley & Lee single
Post by Roger Ford
Johnny Kidd & The Pirates - Please Don't Touch - UK HMV 615
***** The Miracles - I Love Your Baby - Motown G-1
I tried to be patriotic---and thats a really good Kidd number. But up
against Smokey & co................
Post by Roger Ford
Jimmie Driftwood - The Answer To The Battle Of New Orleans - RCA 47-7571
***** The Channels - My Love Will Never Die - Fury 1021
Driftwood makes some amends for his earlier rather unkind song by
telling the 1814 tale as it SHOULD be told----from the British point
of view this time. There's nothing like a little good old fashioned
historical re-writing :)

However in this particular battle I side with The Channels
Post by Roger Ford
Thurston Harris - Hey Little Girl - Aladdin 3450
***** Chuck Carbo - Be My Girl - Rex 1003
Harris' is the original of the Dee Clark hit. But Carbo's is the
better record IMO
Post by Roger Ford
Little Richard - Shake A Hand - Specialty 670
***** The Earthquakes - Darling Be Mine - Fortune 534
Not one of my LR faves. Jack & Devora get my vote
Post by Roger Ford
The Quills - Whose Love But Yours - Casino 106
***** Clyde McPhatter - Try Try Baby - Atlantic 2028
At last a vote for Clyde. Or more precisely for the Drifters!!
Post by Roger Ford
Ron & Bill - It - Tamla 54025
***** Tiny Lewis - Too Much Rockin' - Tap 502
Lewis' shouter does it for me here. Later released on the Linda label
Post by Roger Ford
Gloria Gunter - Move On Out - Arch 1610
***** The Johnny Otis Show - Castin' My Spell - Capitol 4168
Gloria's answer to "Yakety Yak" has merit but can't compete with Otis'
Bo Diddley-styled remake of the Johnson Brothers.
Post by Roger Ford
Dean & Marc - Tell Him No - Bullseye 1025
***** Richard Barrett - Snake And The Bookworm - 20th Fox 150
Original of the Coasters number beats cover of Travis & Bob
Post by Roger Ford
The Eternals - My Girl - Hollywood 71
***** The Fantastics - There Goes My Love - RCA 47-7572
Both these rate about the same to me. The Fantastics by a whisker
Post by Roger Ford
Ervin Rucker - Done Done The Slop - Duplex 9004
***** Don & Dewey - Big Boy Pete - Specialty 659
Another vote for another D&D original
Post by Roger Ford
Lee Dorsey - Rock - Rex 1005
***** The Drifters - Oh My Love - Atlantic 2025
The flip of a record I predict to go right to the Final
Post by Roger Ford
Johnny Cash - I Forgot To Remember To Forget - Sun 321
***** The Highway Q C's - Working On The Building - Vee Jay 873
Soul man Johnnie Taylor was in the Highway QC's (not sure if he's on
this recording) who get my vote over Cash's lackluster remake of the
Charlie Feathers song that Elvis did
Post by Roger Ford
***** Marty Wilde - Bad Boy - UK Philips 972
Ruby Wright - Three Stars - King 5192
Our own Marty here with his one and only US hit. Certainly better than
Wright's very inferior "Three Stars" (with her singing the wrong words
too)
Post by Roger Ford
Link Wray - Rawhide - Epic 9300
***** Ronnie Hawkins - Southern Love - Roulette 4209
The rather under rated Hawkins had several good records in thisa year.
This Chuck Willis reworking is one of them
Post by Roger Ford
***** Jerry Lee Lewis - Big Blon' Baby - Sun 317
The Fabulous Pearls - My Heart's Desire - Dooto 448
Jumpin' Jehosophat!! Jerry Lee Lewis!!
Post by Roger Ford
The Initials - Bells Of Joy - Dee 1001
***** John Lee Hooker - Crawlin' King Snake - Vee Jay 331
Vee Jay remake of his earlier hit from when he was recording for about
a dozen record companies at once under different names :)
Post by Roger Ford
***** David Ray - Jitterbugging Baby - Kliff 105
The Spaniels - These Three Words - Vee Jay 328
Heresy I know but the Spaniels sounds ordinary wheras Ray has a
sprightly bright RAB number
Post by Roger Ford
***** Eddie Lang - Easy Rockin' - Ron 320
Dion & The Belmonts - A Lover's Prayer - Laurie 3035
Easy vote for the easy rockin' Lang
Post by Roger Ford
The Admirations - The Bells Of Rosa Rita - Mercury 71521
***** Joey Castle - Rock And Roll Daddy-O - Headline 1008
Very mediocre Admirations vs top notch Castle = an obvious vote
Post by Roger Ford
Billy Walker - Forever - Columbia 41548
***** Boogie Jake - Bad Luck And Trouble - Minit 602
Walker's vocal of the much recorded Floyd Cramer tune (that was the
Little Dippers hit) can't compete with Jake's blues number that was
later leased to Chess
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Coasters - What About Us- Atco 6153
Lee Finn - High Class Feelin' - Westport 141
The Coasters with what has to be one of the very earliest
"socio-protest" songs
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Viscounts - Harlem Nocturne - Madison 123
Morgus & The Three Ghouls - Morgus The Magnificent - Vin 1013
My favorite version of the standard from The Viscounts
Post by Roger Ford
***** Little Ike - She Can Rock - Champion 1011
The Turks - Hully Gully - Class 256
Little Ike copying Little Richard and---unlike most of the real LR's
output this year---at least making my toes tap
Post by Roger Ford
***** Mel Robbins - Save It - Argo 5340
Rockin' Ronald & The Rebels - Kansas City - Orchid 5005
Pianist Mel "Pig" Robbins who backed tons of other performers here on
a wild Jerry Lee-styled number,the best solo thing he ever did
Post by Roger Ford
Little Richard - Maybe I'm Right - Specialty 680
***** Lazy Lester - I Hear You Knockin' - Excello 2155
No,its not the Smiley Lewis song but it's a really good rockin' blues
Post by Roger Ford
The Jaguars - Thinking Of You - Original Sound 6
***** The Roulettes - Hasten Jason - Scepter 1204
The Roulettes have the better side here methinks
Post by Roger Ford
***** Otis Rush - Double Trouble - Cobra 5030
The Flamingos - Dream Of A Lifetime - Checker 915
Good Rush blues
Post by Roger Ford
Oscar Boyd & The Calvaes - So Bad - Checker 928
***** The Coasters - I'm A Hog For You - Atco 6146
Classic Coasters flip
Post by Roger Ford
Joe Tex & His X Classmates - Charlie Brown Got Expelled - Ace 559
***** Chuck Berry - Childhood Sweetheart - Chess 1737
Talking of the Coasters,Tex here has a "Charlie Brown" answer. But
sadly for him Chuck has can even better record
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Arcades - My Love - Johnson 320
Nelson Riddle - The Untouchables - Capitol 4309
Another fave TV show but sorry Nelson I like this Arcades doowop
better
Post by Roger Ford
Dolly Parton - Puppy Love - Goldband 1086
***** Jackie Lee Cochran - Georgia Lee Brown - Jaguar 3031
One of the best things I ever heard by Cochran beats a very shrill 13
year old Dolly. No truth in the rumor that her first record was
originally flipped with "Mammaries Are Made Of This"
Post by Roger Ford
Jack Scott - There Comes A Time - Carlton 519
***** The Solitaires - Embraceable You - Old Town 1066
Not one of Scott's best. Going with the Solitaires on the old standard
Post by Roger Ford
The Checkers - Teardrops Are Falling - King 5199
***** Larry Williams - Bad Boy - Specialty 658
This is the original of the "Bad Boy" the Beatles did
Post by Roger Ford
***** Ben Hewitt - I Ain't Givin' Up Nothin' - Mercury 71413
The Impacts - Canadian Sunset - Watts 5600
Hewitt has my fave version of this song & gets my vote here
Post by Roger Ford
Ersel Hickey - You Threw A Dart - Epic 9309
***** Laurel Aitken - Boogie In My Bones - R&B (Jamaica) 5935
Nice R&B roller from Aitken. Recorded in Jamaica
Post by Roger Ford
Jo Stafford - It's Been So Long - Columbia 41517
***** Mose Allison - Parchman Farm - Prestige 130
Sorry Peter I don't have (or even know) the Stafford but can't imagine
it better than Mose Allison here
Post by Roger Ford
***** Billy The Kid - Apron Strings - Kapp 261
The Fireflies - I Can't Say Goodbye - Ribbon 6904
Dunno if this Billy was an outlaw but his song is the one that Cliff
Richard does on the flip of "Living Doll"
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Monorays - My Guardian Angel - Tammy Records 1005
Patti Page - With My Eyes Wide Open Im Dreaming - Mercury 71469
Nice Monorays doowop here beats the pants of Patti's remake of her own
earlier hit (since Tommy Edwards hit #1 a year earlier doing the same
thing loads of older record stars were trying for chart comeback using
the same ploy)
Post by Roger Ford
***** Brenda Lee - Let's Jump The Broomstick - Decca 30885
Speck And Doyle - Music To My Ear - Syrup Bucket 1000
I guess Speck & Doyle have one of the very rarest and most valuable
singles here today but it don't stack up against a really rockin'
Brenda on one of her very best
Post by Roger Ford
The Laddins - Yes Oh Baby Yes - Grey Cliff 721
***** Billy Eldridge - Let's Go Baby - Vulco 1501
But I'm casting the RAB vote here
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Shirelles - Look-A Here Baby - Scepter 1203
Cliff Richard - Travellin' Light - UK Columbia 4351
Shirelles flip whops Cliff's second UK #1 hit that year
Post by Roger Ford
***** Ronnie Hawkins - Forty Days - Roulette 4154
The Platters - Remember When - Mercury 71467
Another decent Hawkins outing. He increased the number of days by ten
and hustled Chuck out of the writing credits but its still a fair
version
Post by Roger Ford
Sam Cooke - There I've Said It Again - Keen 2105
***** The Fantastics - Millionaire Hobo - RCA 47-7572
Sam Cooke meets Bobby Vinton!! No thanks.....the Fantastics for me
Post by Roger Ford
***** Billy Lamont - Country Boy -Okeh 7125
Buddy Holly - Raining In My Heart - Coral 62074
Good rocker by Lamont beats turgid Holly flipside
Post by Roger Ford
***** Joyce Green - Black Cadillac - Vaden 112
The Rays - Mediterranean Moon - XYZ 605
Here's a gal who should've recorded more and given Brenda and Wanda a
run for their money. Excellent RAB outing from Ms Green
Post by Roger Ford
***** Howlin' Wolf - Natchez Burning - Chess 1744
Billy Storm - I've Come Of Age - Columbia 41356
Chester relates the goings on down in Natchez,Ms
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Sonics - This Broken Heart - Harvard 801
Marv Johnson - I'm Coming Home - United Artists 175
Decent Sonics outing (leased to Chess) beats average Marv outing
Post by Roger Ford
The Rock-A- Teens - Twangy - Roulette 4217
***** Smokey Smothers - I've Been Drinkin' Muddy Water - Federal 12395
Great under rated bluesman Smothers had a terrific LP "Back Porch
Blues" in 1962 that has most of his best stuff
Post by Roger Ford
Lee Andrews & The Hearts - Just Suppose - United Artists 162
***** Roy Orbison - With The Bug - Monument 409
Catchy Orbison number that I believe he recorded earlier for RCA as
"The Bug"
Post by Roger Ford
***** Larry Donn - Honey Bun - Vaden 113
The Impalas - Oh What A Fool - Cub 9033
Decent RAB number here
Post by Roger Ford
***** Muddy Waters - Mean Mistreater - Chess 1718
The Cadillacs - Please Mister Johnson - Josie 861
Muddy beats Caddys on their Coasters take off
Post by Roger Ford
***** Little Junior Parker - Stranded - Duke 309
The L'Captans - Homework - Savoy 1567
Both these shine but Junior shines brighter for me
Post by Roger Ford
Neil Sedaka - Crying My Heart Out For You - RCA 47-7530
***** The Coasters - That Is Rock And Roll - Atco 6141
Sorry Neil but you had one vote from me. No chance AT ALL of another
here
Post by Roger Ford
The Four Flickers - Long Tall Texan - Lee 1003
***** The Falcons - Just For Your Love - Chess 1743
The Flickers is the original of Murry Kellum's minor hit.
Post by Roger Ford
***** The Olympics - Chicken - Demon 1514
Robert Parker - All Nite Long - Ron 327
Both these are good. That's THE Robert Parker of "Barefootin" fame
Post by Roger Ford
Little Bobby Rey - Rockin' "J" Bells - Original Sound 8
***** Ronnie Hawkins - Hey Bo Diddley - Quality (Canada) 1827
Hawkins' debut record only released in Canada. Fair version of the Bo
classic
Post by Roger Ford
Nappy Brown - I Cried Like A Baby - Savoy 1575
***** Jimmy Reed - Take Out Some Insurance - Vee Jay 314
The Jimmy Reed number that the early pre-EMI Beatles used to do
Post by Roger Ford
***** N.A Stephenson - Boogie Woogie Country Girl - Westwood 201
Oscar Boyd & The Calvaes - Anna Macora - Checker 928
Forget who pressed this up over here but we sold a ton of this RAB

***** Joyce Harris & The Slades - I Cheated - Domino 903

Not really a fan of this very ordinary Joyce Harris answer effort (not

boring Previn even less

The Kingston Trio - San Miguel - Capitol 4271
***** Marty Wilde - Danny - UK Philips 926
I've said here before that I detest the Kingston Trio but "San Miguel"
is not bad by them---certainly much better than Lonnie Donegan's limp
UK cover (he hit the Kingstons badly twice---first covering "Tom
Dooley" then "San Miguel"). OTOH "Danny" is one of the best things
Marty Wilde ever did---its the first released version (I think) of the
song Elvis did for "King Creole" (but was shelved) and the same song
that was hastily rewritten and presented by Conway Twitty as "Lonely
Blue Boy"

***** Guitar Gable - This Should Go On Forever - Excello 2153
Stan Freberg - The Old Payola Roll Blues - Capitol 4329

Hate voting against a good Keys song but I have a soft spot for
Poovey's very Jerry Lee-like record. Pity Jerry Lee didn't find a
similar soft spot when---in a fit of anger---he FLUNG an original (and
highly valuable!!) copy of Poovey's 45 across his back stage dressing
room when a fan made the grave mistake of showing it to him
Post by Roger Ford
***** Jimmy Rogers - My Last Meal - Chess 1721
Little Richard - Wonderin' - Specialty 660
Amusing remake here by Rogers of the earlier Hurricane Harry tale "The
Last Meal". It's a very funny story of a condemned guy on Death Row
who can choose "one last meal" and is guaranteed not to go to the
chair till he has it. So our hero asks for a load of impossible things
to eat like dinosaur eggs ("over easy") and suchlike that would take
forever to find. Terrific!!

decent Fascinators record

This is pretty interesting. As you probably noticed, I have friendly
bet with Rick that "Because Of My Best Friend" will at least tie "That
Old Black Magic". Now TOBM just went up against "My Vow To You" which
is a well known group harmony standard and the "A" side of one of my
only two personal nominations. So if "That Old Black Magic" loses, it
will be to a tune that only got in because I suggested it. Talk about
strange coincidences. LOL

This is also interesting. "Because Of My Best Friend" is up against
the flip side of "Love You So" by Ron Holden. I can remember
listening to "My Babe" when I bought "Love You So" and vowing never to
play it again. Now I'm not saying that it's a bad record. It just
isn't to my taste, and it certainly wasn't what I expected to hear on
the flip side of "Love You So". But who knows? You liked it, and I
understand that it was a hit in GB, so I'm looking forward to seeing
how this one pans out. Maybe *neither* "That Old Black Magic" or
"Because Of My Best Friend" will make it to the next round. (-:

I think several personal nominations ended up squaring off against the
personal nominations of others. One of mine ,for instance---Cookie &
The Cupcakes' "Close Up The Back Door" is currently in contention with
Marty Robbins' "The Blues Country Style" which IIRC Diane nominated .

Here are my selections:

Bobby Day - The Bluebird The Buzzard And The Oriole - Class 241
***** Henry Mancini - Peter Gunn - RCA 47-7460

Never liked the show,,,loved the theme song. (-:

***** The Students - My Vow To You - Note 10019
The Clovers - Old Black Magic - United Artists 174

"That Old Black Magic" is a pretty good song, but too "pop"-ish for
me.

***** Ray Charles - I Believe To My Soul - Atlantic 2043

Makes me believe. (-:

***** The Edsels - Do You Love Me - Roulette 4151
Lonesome Sundown - Gonna Stick To You Baby - Excello 2163

I'm not sure about this one. I normally don't vote for something that
I wouldn't buy. I think that I would have bought this one. Maybe.

Chet Atkins - One Mint Julep - RCA 77-7684
***** The Revels - Dead Man's Stroll - Norgolde 103

Great stroll!

I like both sides along with "Bye Bye Baby".

I had a little problem here. I always like "My Girl", but it seems
draggy compared to "There Goes My Love".

Morgus & The Three Ghouls - Morgus The Magnificent - Vin 1013

Can't you see the stripper twirling her tassles?

Ben Hewitt - I Ain't Givin' Up Nothin' - Mercury 71413

Great record! I play this *loud* when I'm cruising through town in my
Mustang. (-:

Little Anthony & The Imperials - I'm Alright - End 1053

All three Skyliners cuts are top drawer.

***** The Eternals - Babalu's Wedding Day - Hollywood 70
The Vibraharps - Nosey Neighbors - Atco 6134

Even the New York City DJ Bob Lewis copped this side as his theme song
with the change to "Bob-a-lu...Bob-a-lu-eye-ay..the big Bob a loo-in
show!"

Ritchie Valens - That's My Little Suzie - Del-Fi 4114
***** Nolan Strong & The Diablos - I Wanna Know - Fortune 532

I have this on an original 45. I didn't realize that this and "If I"
were from '59. I always thought earlier.

Loud, fast and out of control...parrots screaming...incomprehensible
lyrics...great bass part. What's not to love?

American cop and detective TV dramas were very big over here around
this time so its odd that neither UK TV network purchased "Peter Gunn"
series for contininous showing. Odder still considering the theme tune
(the Eddy version) was so huge here too. A few odd episodes turned up
here but that was all. Shame.'cos it looked pretty good

side.

They recorded it twice. The Parrot cut from 1954 (with Sollie McElroy
on lead) was in the last contest. This is the 1956 re-recording for
Chess (Nate Nelson lead) that stayed in the can until 1959.

I can't explain why I like "Love You So". It's not even particularly
well sung. (shrug) But man was it popular.

I can't blame you. (-: All I can say is that The Impact's version has
nothing to do with "Canadian Sunset". Like "Never Let You Go" by The
Five Disks and "Unchained Melody" by Vito and the Salutations, it's
all about the wacked out bass part. Trying to find anything in this
that resembles the original style is going to give you a massive

I was living in Memphis when this came out and it got a lot of play in
the area, but I don't recall ever hearing it in NYC when I got back
that same season.

Here we go again!!
I'm going to be away from my computer for a while, and this is all I
have time for. If I abstained on something good, I'll catch it next
round. Sorry, no comments today.
Thank you Gawd for small mercies.

Now come on Sharx. The number of "Idiots' appears to be growing as we
speak. You still haven't told me how to join. Or even the actual
number. So...how do I get in on your membership drive? (-:

I'm not friends with any greasy new yorker, and the number grew
because after a board of directors meeting today you were voted
in......unanimously.

I can recall that a few of us were discussing whether some of the
Singles being added as Personal Nominations might be that significant
in the Preliminary Round. My feeling was that several of the Songs by
established Artists might actually be better than a few people feared.

But I was pleasantly surprised that quite a few of the entries were
better even than I was expecting. That did result in the necessity of
listening to several of the Songs a second or even a third time. Here
are my actual votes from this Round.

***** Ike Turner - Box Top - Cobra 5033
The Senators - Tafu - Bristol 1916

***** The Hot Toddys - Rockin' Crickets - Shan-Todd 0056
Slim Harpo - Buzz Me Babe - Excello 2171

***** Clyde McPhatter - You Went Back On Your Word - Atlantic 2038
The Channels - The Girl Next Door - Fire 1001

B.B King - The Woman I Love - Kent 525
***** The Chordettes - No Other Arms No Other Lips - Cadence1361

***** Wilbert Harrison - Cheating Baby - Fury 1027
Bobby & The Orbits - Felicia - Seeco 6005

Johnny O'Keefe - It's Too Late - Liberty 55228
***** Ron Haydock & The Boppers - Be-Bop-A Jean - Cha Cha 701

***** The Knockouts - Darling Lorraine - Shad 5013
Neil Sedaka - I Go Ape - RCA 47-7473

This was fairly close, but The Knockouts edged Neil out here.

***** The Five Royales - I Know It's Hard But It's Fair - King 5191
Little Bill & The Bluenotes - I Love An Angel - Dolton 4

***** The Spinners - Richard Pry Private Eye - End 1045
Jack Scott - Bella - Carlton 504
