Here are the results of voting in Round One - Part Two of the Singles
Battle Of Battles. 28 people voted. There were FIVE draws
All in all I'm happy with these results. Most of the close battles
went my way.
Post by Roger Ford
24 Chuck Berry - Rock And Roll Music - Chess 1671 - 1957
4 Nat "King" Cole - Too Young - Capitol 1449 - 1951
Cole can't even get in the game against top notch 50d rock and roll.
Post by Roger Ford
9 Wynonie Harris - I Like My Baby's Pudding - King 4342 - 1950
14 Fats Domino - Mardi Gras In New Orleans - Imperial 5231- 1953
HUGE round for Fats.
Post by Roger Ford
14 Robert & Johnny - We Belong Together - Old Town 1047 - 1957
13 Ivory Joe Hunter - I Almost Lost My Mind - M-G-M 10578 - 1949
Close one goes my way.
Post by Roger Ford
13 John Lee Hooker - Boogie Chillun - Vee Jay 319 - 1959
12 Dion - Ruby Baby - Columbia 42662 - 1962
LOL...the runner up in 1962 loses to Hooker remake. I'm happy, but
shocked.
Post by Roger Ford
12 Patti Page - The Tennessee Waltz - Mercury 5534 - 1950
13 Wynonie Harris - Lovin' Machine - King 4485 - 1951
Thankfully cooler heads prevailed here and great record beats out
sappy memories.
Post by Roger Ford
19 Fats Domino - Blueberry Hill - Imperial 5407 - 1956
9 Martha & The Vandellas - Heat Wave - Gordy 7022 - 1963
I though Fats could win this but I never expected a romp. I guess this
means that as soon as any of the other 1963 records come up against
even a fairly strong 50s record they will be toast.
Post by Roger Ford
10 Jesse Belvin - Goodnight My Love - Modern 1005 - 1956
17 Jackie Wilson - Doggin' Around - Brunswick 55166 - 1960
Surprised this was not closer given the run that Jesse had in the '56
contest with this.
Post by Roger Ford
Jackie takes one of his very best thru to Round Two
WINNER : WILSON
7 Tex Ritter - High Noon (Do Not Forsake Me) - Capitol 2120 - 1952
21 Carl Perkins - Matchbox - Sun 261 - 1957
We're starting to expunge all of the memory records.
Post by Roger Ford
10 Brenda Lee - Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Decca 30776 - 1958
17 Nat "King" Cole - Mona Lisa - Capitol 1010 - 1950
FUCK ME.
Post by Roger Ford
14 Roy Orbison - Blue Bayou - Monument 824 - 1963
12 Hank Williams - Long Gone Lonesome Blues - M-G-M 10645 - 1950
After a real bad part 1 of this round Roy is rebounding in part 2.
Post by Roger Ford
21 Jackie Wilson - Lonely Teardrops - Brunswick 55105 - 1958
6 Santo & Johnny - Sleep Walk - Canadian-American 103 - 1959
YES
Post by Roger Ford
14 John Lee Hooker - Boom Boom - Vee Jay 438 - 1962
12 Dion - Runaround Sue - Laurie 3110 - 1961
Another telling result.
Post by Roger Ford
13 Wilbert Harrison - Kansas City - Fury 1023 - 1959
14 The Platters - The Great Pretender - Mercury 70753 - 1955
This was close but the correct result.
Post by Roger Ford
15 Huey "Piano" Smith - Rockin' Pneumonia & Boogie Woogie Flu - Ace 530 - 1957
12 Johnny Cash - I Walk The Line - Sun 247 - 1956
This Cash could have won a couple of more rounds at least if it hadn't
come up against a heavyweight so early.
Post by Roger Ford
18 Dion & The Belmonts - I Wonder Why - Laurie 3013 - 1958
7 The Moonglows - Most Of All - Chess 1589 - 1955
Did not expect such a landslide here.
Post by Roger Ford
4 Wild Bill Moore - We're Gonna Rock - Savoy 666 - 1948
20 Chuck Berry - Little Queenie - Chess 1722 - 1959
Big romp for item that barely made the contest.

1959 #32 was Eddie Cochran, but it wasn't this song -- it was somethin' else.
;-)

"C'mon Everybody" was 1958 #17. I'm not sure how you got the year changed
again since the results on the web site have this as 1958.

WINNER : SHEP/LIMELITES
Fortunately, this is still true.

No it's not. "WWMA" is one of the most significant records of the
entire era. The biggest R&B record of 1954, and a groundbreaking item
that spawned many an answer record and many an imitation, including
"The Wallflower."

And with this crowd it's gonna be very hard for any early record
(48-51) to compete with any great mid-50s record. There's only a
handful (5 or less) early things that stand a chance as we go forward.

Good Rockin' Tonight - Wynonie
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry
Sixty Minute Man
Rocket 88

That's about it. Every other pre-1952 record will get beaten easily by
any great 1954-1958 item.

WHEN a record was released should have absolutely NO BEARING on how
good it is. Frankly, I'd abolish showing dates in these contests as
there are those who are prejudiced for or against a record SOLELY
on its date of release. Makes no sense. Judge a record on its OWN
merits. Also, the presence of violins in a record should NOT be
grounds to dis it.

So things from 2010 are just as good as things from 1955?
Something from 1955 is not automatically good nor is something from
2010 automatically bad. Surely, if I were to listen to EVERY record
released in 2010, I might find SOMETHING I liked. Certainly, there
was ample dreck released in 1955. I should have further limited my
remarks to those years usually discussed in the 50s group...I.e.
say from the 40's through the 1964 or so. By co-incidence 1961
probably had MORE of my faves that any other year but that has more
to do with the fact that I turned 15 early in that year. I've heard
many agree that the year that they were 15 or 16 is the year that
has more of their faves than any other year. So, since I was born
in 1946....

Similarly, BOTH the lyrics (if there are any) AND all the rest are
part and parcel of a record. It is pointless to try to ignore
either. Of course, if a particular title was done in both
instrumental AND vocal with instrumental format, one is most
certainly entitled to prefer one over the other---BASED solely on
the merits of that PARTICULAR record. It is BLOCK HEADED to
automatically dis ALL instrumental records or, for that matter, ALL
vocal with instrumental records. There is crap in all categories.

No Bob.

I'm not "arguing" that records from a certain time are better or
worse.

I'm stating that in THIS contest with THESE vioters that the records
from the early years WILL NOT be able to compete with the records from
the mid-50s. That's not based on a my judgment of the quality of the
music from those years. It's based solely on the makeup of the voters
and their past record of voting and discussion in this group.

Of course, all that matters is what's coming out of the speakers. It's
just that the vast majority of the voters here have already shown that
they much prefer the 1954-1958 material to the earlier things.

I think the argument can be made as a matter of quality, but it also
may be made simply in terms of the numbers of voters attracted to each
of the contests. Am I correct in thinking the contests for the later
years attracted substantially more voters than the contests for
1948-53? Those uninterested in the earlier records are likely not going
to be voting for them now.

WHEN a record was released should have absolutely NO BEARING on how
good it is. Frankly, I'd abolish showing dates in these contests as
there are those who are prejudiced for or against a record SOLELY
on its date of release. Makes  no sense.  Judge a record on its OWN
merits.
Dave is saying all that matters is what comes out of the speakers, and
Bruce is arguing the opposite.
Funny.
Next Bruce will make a point about Ballard's clever lyrics and Mark
will say no real music fan listens to them.
No Bob.
I'm not "arguing" that records from a certain time are better or
worse.
I'm stating that in THIS contest with THESE vioters that the records
from the early years WILL NOT be able to compete with the records from
the mid-50s. That's not based on a my judgment of the quality of the
music from those years. It's based solely on the makeup of the voters
and their past record of voting and discussion in this group.
Of course, all that matters is what's coming out of the speakers. It's
just that the vast majority of the voters here have already shown that
they much prefer the 1954-1958 material to the earlier things.
I think the argument can be made as a matter of quality, but it also
may be made simply in terms of the numbers of voters attracted to each
of the contests. Am I correct in thinking the contests for the later
years attracted substantially more voters than the contests for
1948-53? Those uninterested in the earlier records are likely not going
to be voting for them now.
Voters attracted to the yearly contests for that early period had a much
harder time listening to obscurities (in the sense that the tunes would
be not available on youtube or the like). This isn't the case with the
culled selection in the present contest; consequently, a fair A-B
comparison can be done with every pair. Roger's snippets helped a bit,
but it wasn't as good as it is now. Except for the excruciating choices
I am really enjoying this contest.

There's no obscurities in this contest, and the early records are
still getting crushed.

Most people are going to choose the familiar oldeis radio hit from
1958 over the great but less familiar 1951 R&B record. There are 3 or
4 exceptions among the early records, but other than that you'll still
see great 1951 records like "My Baby Left Me" get beaten badly by
solid but not classic records like this:

1962 #07 16 Clyde McPhatter - Lover Please - Mercury
71941
1951 #12 8 Arthur Big Boy Crudup - My Baby Left Me - RCA
22-0109

Then you'll have a real great 1952 blues record that finished at # 11
for its year lose soundly to an okay white doo wop record that barely
got into the contest at # 36 in 1958.

The Capris record is, by far, the superior one. Period.

21 The Royals - Work With Me Annie - Federal 12169 - 1954
6 Louis Jordan - Saturday Night Fish Fry - Decca 24725 - 1949
This result sees Louis Jordan out of the contest failing to get out of
Round One
WINNER : ROYALS
I thought Jordan might lose this, but not this badly.
This is sad.
I figure if I find myself voting against Jordan, as I did here, he's
going to lose badly.

Here are the results of voting in Round One - Part Two of the Singles
Battle Of Battles. 28 people voted. There were FIVE draws
Here is a different look at the results, viewed in terms of the years of the
individual songs and their ranks from their Yearly contests. For each song I
list the year, its rank, the number of votes in this round, and finally the
song. In each pair of songs, the winner is listed first. For example:

1948 #03 15 Amos Milburn - Chicken Shack Boogie - Aladdin 3014
1955 #20 11 Tennessee Ernie Ford - Sixteen Tons - Capitol 3262

"Chicken Shack Boogie" ranked #3 in the 1948 contest. In this round, it beat
"Sixteen Tons" 15-11. "Sixteen Tons" was #20 in the 1955 contest.
