My #1 is 43rd on your list. My #2, Bye Bye Baby, doesn't seem to be in your top 100. Still, it's hard to go wrong with all of these winners.

Not quite as shocking as that Rare Earth record being ranked over
nearly all the great 1960's stuff.

I see "Let's Get It On" as post-soul, the start of modern R&B. That's why I'm surprised.

I just see it---as the man himself said---as a natural step on from
where he was with the almost-as-great "What's Going On"

467 | I've Been Working On The Railroad | Mitch Miller
Who'da thunk it!!!

Of course, you never went to any 50s summer camps where the song was
both ubiquitous and obnoxious long before Miller decided to run it
through his meat grinder.

I always liked the song as a kid when we had to sing it in music class.

This is weird, but.... sorta infectious.

It has a very familiar feel to it, the clip-clopetyness, but damn if I

Whether or not this is the song you were thinking of, Steve,
there are some strong similarities to:

As the final songs play on the 1959 list, I am going to next to my favorite=
s from 1950. These are like a dark spot on the wall as far as any of us hav=
ing heard any of these records in the 50s or even the 60s.
I don't think I heard much at all from this list in the 50's but by
the mid- 60's I was familiar with most of the Fats Domino and Hank
Williams things and a few others here
3 =C2=A6 The Fat Man =C2=A6 Fats Domino
This fabulous Fats debut is my #1 fave of the year
6 =C2=A6 Cool Water =C2=A6 Four Tunes
Never been crazy about this song in any version
16 =C2=A6 Double Crossing Blues =C2=A6 Little Esther & Robins
I guess this one must have kept Grandpappy Herman in cigars for the
whole year
17 =C2=A6 Shotgun Boogie =C2=A6 Tennessee Ernie Ford
There wasn't a UK chart at this time but various scholars have worked
out from sales figures that if there had been such a chart this one
would have topped it for several weeks
35 =C2=A6 Please Send Me Someone To Love =C2=A6 Percy Mayfield
I have this classic as my #2 foe the year
56 =C2=A6 We're Gonna Rock =C2=A6 Gunter Lee Carr (Cecil Gant)
A real rocker ahead of its time. Best thing he ever did IMO

I notice the Tippo Lite thing isn't included. Is that really from
1950?

Tippo Lite's All Stars-Jumping This Morning-Back Alley 202-1950 (?)

The YT clip almost certainly shows a 45rpm boot.

Supposedly recorded in Memphis Tefteller had the original 78 in this

3 Š My Baby Left Me Š Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup
Much as I love Crudup's original I think Elvis' zingy remake is, if
anything even better and definitely one of the very best things he
ever did for RCA
6 Š It Ain't The Meat Š Swallows
7 Š Sixty Minute Man Š Dominoes
I've mentioned here before how I first made the aquaintance of these
gems (and these fine vocal groups come to that) on this (now super
rare) 1956 UK EP on the Vogue label that I picked up for pennies in
some London flea market. Never were my pennies better spent!!

http://www.45cat.com/record/epv1113
8 Š Rocket 88 Š Jackie Brenston
Surely one of the most valuable records on original 45rpm
14 Š Lovin' Machine Š Wynonie Harris
I've been told that when the Burnette Trio performed in Memphis they
did this number in their stage act. Don't think it was ever recorded
tho there was no tape of it when Coral scoured the vaults for the
"Tear It Up" LP
18 Š Dust My Broom Š Elmore James
IIRC you like the Elmore remake better but IMO this one is the dog's
bollocks!!
26 Š The Train Kept A'Rollin' Š Tiny Bradshaw
It's real good but the Burnette Trio version is better yet
40 Š She's Dynamite Š Tampa Red
Both versions are great but I give the edge to Riley on this one
43 Š Cold Cold Heart Š Hank Williams
This is the best ever version but I love hearing Jerry Lee do the song
too
54 Š Don't You Lie To Me Š Fats Domino
I have this much higher on my list. His best of the year for me
57 Š The Chill Is On Š Joe Turner
Much prefer the "Bump Miss Susie" side.
63 Š Beal Street On A Saturday Night Š Calvin Boze
You have my eternal gratitude for this one that I never knew until a
few years back when you mentioned it on here!!
70 Š Double Faced Deacon Š Tommy Brown
Very good but my vote goes to his "Atlanta Boogie" as his best for the
year.
78 Š You Gotta Have Something On The Ball Š Sticks McGhee
Weird how he pops up on London while still contracted to Atlantic
121 Š How High The Moon Š Les Paul & Mary Ford
No disageement here on the best pop record of the year!
139 Š Too Young Š Nat "King" Cole
And the second best............
164 Š Unforgettable Š Nat "King" Cole
And even third.........
167 Š Hey Little Girl Š John Godfrey Trio
The original version on a much recorded song at this time
184 Š Sound Off Š Vaughn Monroe
We break company on this one. I can't stand it personally. Horrid song
in any version
186 Š Atlanta Boogie Š Tommy Brown
So is it on Acorn or Regent originally?? Can we conjure up the ghost
of Grandad Herman to ask him??
205 Š Rockin' And Jumpin' Š Honey Brown
Do you have the 1952 re-recording of this on Fortune?

As you know I'm not a Fats fan but this would be in my top 5 favorites by
him. Love that piano. It's on my walking playlist.

It was more than a few years, because we first heard this song in a music
museum in Memphis when we visited there in February 2004. Yep, time flies
when we're having fun.....

You're probably right.

I checked and it certainly had to have been at least 2008 since it was
in the 1951 Singles Battle that year (losing to Ruth Brown and "I'll
Wait For You" in Round 2)

God how the time doth fly. It's 16 years now since I was last in
US---the year after 9/11 I remember it taking well over two hours to
get through immigration and security on arrival at Philly Int.

Moving on to 1955 now.
1 =C2=A6 Tutti-Frutti =C2=A6 Little Richard
At last we agree on a #1!!
Post by SavoyBG
2 =C2=A6 Midnight Cannonball =C2=A6 Joe Turner
Great Joe Turner that was kept waiting no less than 10 years for a UK
45rpm release
Post by SavoyBG
3 =C2=A6 My Babe =C2=A6 Little Walter
Here's another entry for Bill's "Two Different Songs With The Same
Title" thread----this one by Walter and "My Babe" by Ron Holden (the
flip of his "Love You So" hit)
Post by SavoyBG
4 =C2=A6 Bo Diddley =C2=A6 Bo Diddley
Vying with "Maybellene" as the VERY BEST debut record ever!!
Post by SavoyBG
5 =C2=A6 Stand By Me =C2=A6 Guitar Slim
And another for that Bill thread---along with the more famous Ben E.
King song of the same title
Post by SavoyBG
7 =C2=A6 I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
I have a boot 45 of the original so slowwwwwwww version of this song
(as "My Baby's Gone")
Post by SavoyBG
14 =C2=A6 Move Baby Move =C2=A6 Larry Harrison
I prefer the Billy Emerson version that he's ripping off (and of
course both of them owe more than a small debt to Big Joe)
Post by SavoyBG
16 =C2=A6 Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On =C2=A6 Roy Hall
Very much in 3rd place on this song after Jerry Lee and Big Maybelle
Post by SavoyBG
55 =C2=A6 Baby Let's Play House =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
I don't understand this classic (his BEST on Sun for me) being LOWER
than "You're A Heartbreaker" that I rate as the least of all the Sun
singles releases
Post by SavoyBG
59 =C2=A6 Yours Truly =C2=A6 Pee Wee Crayton
My very favorite ever by him.So popular here it was booted in the 70's
Post by SavoyBG
60 =C2=A6 Maybellene =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
#2 for the year on my list
Post by SavoyBG
63 =C2=A6 Why Do Fools Fall In Love =C2=A6 Teenagers
Reached #1 on the UK charts prompting some live appearances over here
by the boys most notably at the London Palladium
Post by SavoyBG
75 =C2=A6 Chocko Mo Feendo Hay =C2=A6 Danny Barker
I have this on his King Zulu label as 1953????
Post by SavoyBG
79 =C2=A6 Milkcow Blues Boogie =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
"Let's get real real gone for a change"
Post by SavoyBG
91 =C2=A6 What's It All About =C2=A6 Little Leo
Pretty good entry from Lloyd's Price's little brother
Post by SavoyBG
107 =C2=A6 Single Life =C2=A6 Billy Tate
Supposedly Fats backing blind Billy here on a take off of his own "The
Fat Man" . Think thats Earl Palmer on drums
Post by SavoyBG
126 =C2=A6 Mystery Train =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
Again "You're A Heartbreaker" better than this?? Not in my book!
Post by SavoyBG
151 =C2=A6 Why Don't You Write Me =C2=A6 Jacks
One of the best ever cover records (of The Feathers original)
Post by SavoyBG
165 =C2=A6 Don't Be Angry =C2=A6 Nappy Brown
One of the few famous 50's r&r/r&b singles I'm missing in my
collection on UK release (London label). All the more puzzling since I
imagine this may have been Herman's best selling single of the era
over here (which is not saying much).

Wonder how much Decca forwarded him in UK royalties?
Post by SavoyBG
175 =C2=A6 Memories Are Made of This =C2=A6 Dean Martin
Classic pop record cover of the dire Mindy Carson original
Post by SavoyBG
178 =C2=A6 The Fish =C2=A6 Big Mama Thornton
Classic r&b record cover of the dire Mindy Carson original
Post by SavoyBG
181 =C2=A6 Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie =C2=A6 Cosmic Rays
Not-bad-at-all doowop thing from the otherwise unlistenable
permanently spaced out jazz artist Sun Ra
Post by SavoyBG
185 =C2=A6 The Way You Dog Me Around =C2=A6 Diablos
Beautiful soulful sound of Nolan Strong & co on what for me is their
second best ever record after "The Wind"
Post by SavoyBG
261 =C2=A6 Hand Clappin' =C2=A6 Red Prysock
Along with Claud Cloud's "Cloudburst" this seemed to be a favorite
opening theme for the compilation radio show Alan Freed used to
present on Radio Luxembourg on Saturday nites
Post by SavoyBG
272 =C2=A6 Honkin' At Midnight =C2=A6 Frank Motley
Another big radio show theme over here this one saw long service as
the opening theme to Charlie Gillett's Sunday morning "Honky Tonk"
show on BBC Radio London
Post by SavoyBG
388 =C2=A6 Unchained Melody =C2=A6 Al Hibbler
My favorite ever version of this so-very-much recorded song
Post by SavoyBG
395 =C2=A6 Thirty Days (To Come Back Home) =C2=A6 Ernest Tubb
Surprisingly good version of the Chuck Berry number and was my first
introduction to the song when I found a beat up UK copy of this on
some junk stall
Post by SavoyBG
401 =C2=A6 Sitting By The Window =C2=A6 Five Tinos
One of the rarest 45's on Sun that you'll need to sell your house to
buy an original 45rpm copy of today (think the rarest of all is the
D.A Hunt)
Post by SavoyBG
419 =C2=A6 April in Paris =C2=A6 Count Basie
One of the few jazz recordings I like.

"One more once!!"
Post by SavoyBG
425 =C2=A6 Maybellene =C2=A6 Marty Robbins
Robbins handled the r&r and rab he was given with some flair with a
decent "Maybellene" here and later the second best "Long Tall Sally"
in my book (beating Elvis' version)
Post by SavoyBG
518 =C2=A6 All Messed Up =C2=A6 Jess Hopper & Daydreamers
For a long while this was assumed by rab fans over here to be Charlie
Feathers recording under an alter ego.
Post by SavoyBG
551 =C2=A6 A Theme From The Threepenny Opera (Mack The Knife) =C2=A6 Louis =
Armstrong
Tho I give a slight edge to Darin on this one I do have a lot of time
for Satch on his earlier version too. He ad libbed the "Lotte Lenya"
reference in the closing verse too (the real life lady was present in
the studio whilst recording was going on)
Post by SavoyBG
552 =C2=A6 (Love Is) The Tender Trap =C2=A6 Frank Sinatra
One of my favorite 50's Sinatra numbers. Pity the dire movie didn't
live up to its theme song

Not sure. I'd need to check. But I obviously read it somewhere.. But I
see discogs has the 1953 date too

Chuck's version was never released here on a single.

I had to wait till the mid 60's to get it first on London EP then as
an import Chess single (courtesy the great London import store
Transat)

161 ¦ Too Much ¦ Jimmy Reed


Thanks,

I don't remember ever hearing this, and it led me to the Just Jimmy Reed
album, where I found this:



Much better than the Hayley Mills.

A comment or two.......
1 =C2=A6 I Need Your Lovin' =C2=A6 Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford
My #3 of the year and certainly the very best thing Don Gardner ever
did
2 =C2=A6 I'm In Love Again =C2=A6 Upsetters
Brilliant Little Richard take on the famous Domino hit
3 =C2=A6 Pink Pegged Slacks =C2=A6 Eddie Cochran
First released on the UK "Cherished Memories" Lp that year. It's just
"Pink Peg Slacks" on there
5 =C2=A6 Shticks And Stones =C2=A6 Allan Sherman
Sorry but for me a liitle---a VERY little---Allan Sherman goes a
long,long way
7 =C2=A6 I Wanna Be Around =C2=A6 Tony Bennett
Wow!! So high?? It';s ok but I like "I Left MY Heart In San Francisco"
better
8 =C2=A6 Jackson Dog =C2=A6 Larry Brinkley
This wasn't known (over here anyway) when we had the London store
otherwise we'd have been inundated with calls for it
9 =C2=A6 Stormy Monday Blues =C2=A6 Bobby "Blue" Bland
Still my very favorite version of the much recorded T-Bone song
10 =C2=A6 Bring It Home To Me =C2=A6 Sam Cooke
My #2 for the year and his best ever solo recording IMO
14 =C2=A6 I Found A Love =C2=A6 Falcons
My #1 favorite record of 1962
15 =C2=A6 Underneath The Sun =C2=A6 Equallos
It's "Beneath The Sun" and a cracking good record out of Chicago. My
price guide has this valued in a four figure sum!
23 =C2=A6 Twist And Shout =C2=A6 Isley Brothers
The best version of the number. The Beatles deserve some small mention
here since even I agree this is the best of their remakes........
26 =C2=A6 Love Me Do =C2=A6 Beatles
....whereas for me this merits no mention at all. I disliked it hugely
in 1962 and nothing has changed in the decades since
27 =C2=A6 Do You Love Me =C2=A6 Contours
The great storming Motown original of this number. The later UK
versions by DC5 and Brian Poole are laughably weak in comparison
37 =C2=A6 What Time Is It =C2=A6 Jive Five
Used to such great effect in that episode of "The Sopranos"
41 =C2=A6 I Ain't Superstitious =C2=A6 Howlin' Wolf
Its real good of course but I like the "Just Like I Treat You" side
better
45 =C2=A6 Boom Boom =C2=A6 John Lee Hooker
This was the first 45rpm single by Hooker released on these shores
49 =C2=A6 Sheila =C2=A6 Tommy Roe
I know we disagree on this one but IMO this is much better than the
original Judd recording
64 =C2=A6 You'll Lose A Good Thing =C2=A6 Barbara Lynn
Criminally never released here at the time although Jamie had a
distribution deal with UK Decca's London label. I'd guess that Huey
Meaux held the strings and wanted too much money up front for the UK
rights to it
72 =C2=A6 I Get So Tired =C2=A6 Harmonica Fats
78 =C2=A6 Tore Up =C2=A6 Harmonica Fats
First released in 1962 on Skylark before the more famous D'Arcy issue
101 =C2=A6 Things =C2=A6 Bobby Darin
This was recorded a full year before Atco finally released it. Hard to
believe they sat on this whilst putting out junk like "Multiplication"
instead
108 =C2=A6 Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow =C2=A6 Rivingtons
Good but the "Deep Water" flipside is simply magnificent
119 =C2=A6 Chains =C2=A6 Cookies
It wasn't released until the 1980's but The Everly Brothers did the
original of this song
125 =C2=A6 Walk Right In =C2=A6 Rooftop Singers
This helped usher in the "folk boom" of that time which I mostly
detested
132 =C2=A6 Village Of Love =C2=A6 Nathaniel Mayer & Fabulous Twilights
Devora Brown regaled us with the story about how this was easily the
biggest record Fortune ever had and about how it was the only thing
they made that ever got any kind of distribution outside North America
thanks to the ill fated deal they made with United Artists
134 =C2=A6 Hide 'Nor Hair =C2=A6 Ray Charles
I loved this RC number when it was out and and expected it to go much
higher in the charts---which it may well have done had not all the
deejays in both US and here starting playing the shit out of a certain
song on his new "Modern Sounds In Country & Western" album......
146 =C2=A6 Nut Rocker =C2=A6 B. Bumble & Stingers
Decent enough hit in the US but one that MUCH better still over
here---reaching #1 on the UK chart
169 =C2=A6 The Joint's Really Jumpin' =C2=A6 Jimmy Evans
Exactly same comments apply here as to "Jackson Dog" above

It's "Matchbox" with different words by a guy from the same home town as Perkins.
Post by Roger Ford
15 =C2=A6 Underneath The Sun =C2=A6 Equallos
It's "Beneath The Sun"
Of course, I had it right on the MP3.

The great storming Motown original of this number. The later UK
versions by DC5 and Brian Poole are laughably weak in comparison
About 15 years ago in Detroit, The Contours were the closing entertainment at a convention I was attending. They all looked like they were in their 80's, so I assume there were still some original members. When the band started to play, however, you would have thought they were all in the 30's.

A propos of elderly performers: Around ten years ago I watched Clarence
Frogman Henry use his four-legged walker thingie to inch from the wings
to the mic at center stage. His actual performance required no such support
and he blew us all away with his singing and command of the stage.

Similar thing occurred when I saw The Mighty Hannibal.

Since I'm virtually snowbound here I figured I'd post some comments :)
5 =C2=A6 Out Of Sight =C2=A6 James Brown
The template for "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and while both are GREAT
this one is my favorite
12 =C2=A6 Eight Days A Week =C2=A6 Beatles
My antipathy towards these guys is well known but even I have to admit
this one is pretty good. My favorite performance by them
17 =C2=A6 I Ain't Got You =C2=A6 Yardbirds
But Billy Boy's version reigns supreme on my turntable
19 =C2=A6 Have I The Right =C2=A6 Honeycombs
I had (and still have) little time for most of the UK beat group stuff
listed here but this DC5-styled "crash-bang-wallop" thing is one I
positively DETESTED at the time---and of course nothing has changed
since
22 =C2=A6 You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' =C2=A6 Righteous Brothers
Got to #1 here despite losing sales to a dreadful local Cilla Black
cover that also went Top 5
27 =C2=A6 You Never Can Tell =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
My #4 for the year and just beaten by his even better "Promised Land"
at #3 which I don't even see here. WTF???
29 =C2=A6 Ain't That Loving You Baby =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
Splendid revival of Eddie Riff's original recorded by Elvis in June
1958 (at the "Big Hunk O'Love" session) but never released until 1964
33 =C2=A6 It Hurts To Be In Love =C2=A6 Gene Pitney
RCA refused to release Neil Sedaka's original of this number so it was
offered to the most famous person ever to ride in my taxi who recorded
his vocal directly over the original Sedaka backing track leaving
Sedaka's backup vocals and piano work firmly in place.

And also leaving one of Pitney's best records to posterity!
35 =C2=A6 Baby Don't Go =C2=A6 Sonny & Cher
The recent "Caesar & Cleo" renamed with the only record I ever liked
by them...............
37 =C2=A6 The Times They Are A'Changin' =C2=A6 Bob Dylan
.......and one of the VERY,VERY few things I ever liked by him
38 =C2=A6 Would I Love You =C2=A6 Miracles
OMG didn't the Miracles have some truly CLASSIC flipsides?
42 =C2=A6 Hello Dolly =C2=A6 Louis Armstrong
Hokey show number that enabled Satch to knock the Beatles off the
Billboard #1 spot
44 =C2=A6 Buzzard Luck =C2=A6 Wynonie Harris
After three years of inactivity,August 1964 saw Wynonie return to
the recording fray in a session for Chess Records that produced the
very last tracks he would ever record. The session was produced and
arranged by Johnny Pate whose work at ABC-Paramount helped secure hits
for the Impressions and B.B King.

The results of this session were "The Comeback" composed by Memphis
Slim and a couple of Billy "The Kid" Emerson (along with protege
Denise Craig aka later as singer Denise La Salle) penned numbers
"Buzzard Luck" and "Conjured" (tho Emerson only recieved writing
credit for the latter title). Sadly the tracks were never released in
his lifetime and waited till 1970 before surfacing on a little
promoted Chess compilation called "Shoutin' Swingin' And Makin' Love"
(Chess CHV-412)
52 =C2=A6 I'm In Love Again =C2=A6 Animals
It's not the same song but I've read several reports where royalties
from the Animals version were mistakenly paid to Fats Domino & Dave
Bartholomew.
53 =C2=A6 My Girl =C2=A6 Temptations
Easily my #1 for the year
84 =C2=A6 Mountain Of Love =C2=A6 Johnny Rivers
The ONE single Johnny Rivers record I like!! Better than the rather
dull Harold Dorman original IMO
90 =C2=A6 Gonna Send You Back To Walker =C2=A6 Animals
No surprise that I prefer the original version "A City Slick" by Timmy
Shaw that was one of the most oft played numbers ever at the Scene R&B
club in London that I used to frequent
102 =C2=A6 My Guy =C2=A6 Mary Wells
The unfortunate lass who made one of the most ill fated music business
decisions ever when she bizarrely decided to leave Motown for the
greener (yeah right!) pastures of 20th Fox after coming off this huge
hit
106 =C2=A6 Tainted Love =C2=A6 Gloria Jones
I have never been able to like this one which I personally have always
found boring in the extreme. Nevertheless it remains very popular over
here today and stands as one of the all time biggest hits there ever
was on the Northern Soul circuit
121 =C2=A6 Shake =C2=A6 Sam Cooke
"Shake" is real good of course but the very best thing about this Sam
Cooke single was when you flipped it over..........
133 =C2=A6 Rag Doll =C2=A6 Four Seasons
Huh? I thought you detested these guys???
134 =C2=A6 The Way You Look Tonight =C2=A6 Frank Sinatra
Nope,I find Frank's version a little on the stiff side---it don't do
much for me. I'll take Astaire's version as the main course and the
Jaguars for dessert
147 =C2=A6 Dancing In The Street =C2=A6 Martha & Vandellas
"Calling out around the world are you ready for a brand new beat"

THE anthem for 1964 I guess
155 =C2=A6 Gypsy Woman Told Me =C2=A6 Eddie Powers
Here's a nice item I never knew until a few years back when it was
first mentioned on here (wonder who mentioned it? :) and on the
usually c&w-orientated Sims label too.

Listed in Billboard as a New Orleans regional breakout in June that
year
170 =C2=A6 16 Bums =C2=A6 Dickie Goodman
A not particularly funny takeoff on "Sixteen Tons" and not,as might be
suspected,one of his many "break-in" efforts.

I have 1962 on this BTW
174 =C2=A6 Goin' Down To Eli's =C2=A6 Robert Nighthawk and His Flames
Powerful blues aka "Gonna Murder My Baby" recorded live on Maxwell
Street,Chicago
191 =C2=A6 Oh No, Not My Baby =C2=A6 Maxine Brown
Easily her best IMO and MUCH higher on my list i.e Top 20 pissing all
over the Manfred Mann,Rod Stewart & other remake versions I've heard
196 =C2=A6 Santa's Beard =C2=A6 Beach Boys
I have this on my in car Christmas tape as well as "Little Saint Nick"
but I much prefer the latter. "Beard" sounds overly forced and
contrived to me
200 =C2=A6 Wish Someone Would Care =C2=A6 Irma Thomas
#5 on my list and my all time favorite by her
202 =C2=A6 Friday Night Get-Together =C2=A6 Eddy Jacobs
Decent Sam Cooke ripoff on the "Kiss-Kiss" label
210 =C2=A6 Go Now =C2=A6 Bessie Banks
#10 on my list for the better and more soulful original of the Moody
Blues hit
233 =C2=A6 Sad Feeling =C2=A6 Cicero Blake
Killer soul ballad. Think those are the Dells backing him on this

So where's another of my 1964 faves---Alvin Robinson's dynamite "Down
Home Girl" ??

Yes, I heard about your cold spell.

5 =C2=A6 Out Of Sight =C2=A6 James Brown
The template for "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and while both are GREAT
this one is my favorite
I too have it a bit higher.
Post by Roger Ford
27 =C2=A6 You Never Can Tell =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
My #4 for the year and just beaten by his even better "Promised Land"
at #3 which I don't even see here. WTF???
Again you seem to be interested in lyrics.
Post by Roger Ford
52 =C2=A6 I'm In Love Again =C2=A6 Animals
It's not the same song but I've read several reports where royalties
from the Animals version were mistakenly paid to Fats Domino & Dave
Bartholomew.
It sounds like a 50s song, but as far as I know it was an Animals original.
Post by Roger Ford
121 =C2=A6 Shake =C2=A6 Sam Cooke
"Shake" is real good of course but the very best thing about this Sam
Cooke single was when you flipped it over..........
Unless you care about the lyrics I don't see what's so good about the flip side.
Post by Roger Ford
133 =C2=A6 Rag Doll =C2=A6 Four Seasons
Huh? I thought you detested these guys???
I still like this one.
Post by Roger Ford
170 =C2=A6 16 Bums =C2=A6 Dickie Goodman
A not particularly funny takeoff on "Sixteen Tons"
There's no accounting for what the British consider to be humorous.

I've always seen 1964.

When they are this brilliant and when they describe so vividly the
trials and tribulations of the kind of cross-country USA trip that
I've undertaken several times (courtesy Mr Greyhound) they just can't
be ignored

And of course on a purely sonic level it's also one of Chuck's best
ever performances putting the later Elvis version in the shade

What an amazing year, just by scanning the top 40. Can't wait to see 1956=
=2E
The best year ever in music IMO
1 =C2=A6 I'm In Love Again =C2=A6 Fats Domino
"Long Tall Sally" and "Roll Over Beethoven" just beat it on my list
but this is simply MAGNIFICENT from Fats. And I'm with you on liking
the song in general too----even in other versions it's almost always
at least pretty good. Yes,even by The Fontanes! :)
2 =C2=A6 Long Tall Sally =C2=A6 Little Richard
My #1 for the year. Not released here in UK until January 1957 and
flipped with "Tutti Frutti" to make probably the GREATEST doublle
sider single of all time. And the very belated release here ensured
that I heard both songs first by....gulp!---Pat Boone :-(
4 =C2=A6 Honey Hush =C2=A6 Johnny Burnette Trio
5 =C2=A6 The Train Kept A'Rollin' =C2=A6 Johnny Burnette Trio
Two absolutely brilliant sides by the Trio. Both are my 1956 Top 10
6 =C2=A6 Blue Monday =C2=A6 Fats Domino
Recorded in 1955 six months BEFORE "I'm In Love Again". Amazingly
Imperial sat on this gem for 18 months before a final release!
9 =C2=A6 End Of The Road =C2=A6 Jerry Lee Lewis
They spelt Irving Berlin's name wrong on the original Sun record of
this where writing credit goes to one "Jerry Lewis" . Here is the 1929
original of the song from the King Vidor movie "Hallelujah"


11 =C2=A6 Modern Don Juan =C2=A6 Buddy Holly
Never understood the appeal of this one. Sorry Buddy but it sounds
very ordinary to me
12 =C2=A6 One Hand Loose =C2=A6 Charlie Feathers
20 =C2=A6 Bottle To The Baby =C2=A6 Charlie Feathers
One of the greatest RAB singles ever. Both sides are sure fire "10's"
for me
27 =C2=A6 Oh What A Nite =C2=A6 Dells
This one has to share time through my speakers with the almost equally
brilliant 1969 reworking of the song by the group
30 =C2=A6 Come Go With Me =C2=A6 Del-Vikings
The sax break on this one just HAS to be one of the greatest on
record. And comes courtesy Mr Gene Upshaw
31 =C2=A6 Ready Teddy =C2=A6 Little Richard
This was Little Richard's debut release in this country at the end of
1956. Prior to that Specialty had no licenced distributor here
55 =C2=A6 I Ain't Got You =C2=A6 Billy Boy
A song that became beloved by several 1960's UK groups (most notably
The Yardbirds) but Billy Boy's version beats 'em all (and even tops
Jimmy Reed)
64 =C2=A6 Singing The Blues =C2=A6 Guy Mitchell
One of the best pop records of the year and better than the Marty
Robbins version (that may well be the original since the rumoured
Melvin Endsley recording of it never seems to have surfaced)
71 =C2=A6 Stranded In The Jungle =C2=A6 Cadets
One of the all time great cover versions beating The Jayhawks original
99 =C2=A6 You Ain't Treatin' Me Right =C2=A6 Mac Curtis
Top 5 in the list of most valuable UK pressed 45's of the era where it
appeared on an ultra rare pre-Beatles Parlophone label single
104 =C2=A6 Church Bells May Ring =C2=A6 Willows
I have this on the original Melba pressing titled as "Church Bells Are
Ringing"
113 =C2=A6 Smokestack Lightning =C2=A6 Howlin' Wolf
Definitely the very first thing I ever heard by him---via one of the
Alan Freed broadcasts here on Radio Luxembourg
118 =C2=A6 I've Got You Under My Skin =C2=A6 Frank Sinatra
My 20 Pop Favorites from 1956

1. Frank Sinatra - I've Got You Under My Skin
2. Ella Fitzgerald - Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye
3. Guy Mitchell - Singing The Blues
4. Johnnie Ray - Just Walking in The Rain
5. Harry Belafonte - Day-0 (The Banana Boat Song)
124 =C2=A6 Get With It =C2=A6 Charlie Feathers
It's very good but I like the "Tongue Tied Jill" side better
141 =C2=A6 Let's Get High =C2=A6 Rosco Gordon
Great track by Rosco that lay in the Sun vaults for many years until
it was (legally) pressed in limited quantity 45RPM especially for us
in the mid 70's
152 =C2=A6 Long Tall Sally =C2=A6 Marty Robbins
IMO this is the second best version of the song. Certainly beats Elvis
167 =C2=A6 Ubangi Stomp =C2=A6 Warren Smith
Good but can't compare to the definitive Jerry Lee album version
168 =C2=A6 Paralyzed =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
One of the best tracks off his second album and a big hit over here
when released on 45rpm single
177 =C2=A6 Dimples =C2=A6 John Lee Hooker
Made #21 in the NME chart here in June 1964
185 =C2=A6 When My Blue Moon Turns To Gold Again =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
This was the flipside on the UK "Paralyzed" single I just mentioned
194 =C2=A6 Pretty Bad Blues =C2=A6 Ronnie Self
His debut single and a great RAB number that was heavily booted in the
70's.Many sources show a second release by him on ABC-Paramount "Sweet
Love"/"Alone" but the issue seems to have been cancelled
198 =C2=A6 Rock Therapy =C2=A6 Johnny Burnette Trio
The best of the then-unreleased tracks that US Coral turned up for us
when compiling the "Tear It Up" album by The Trio
201 =C2=A6 Please Listen To Me =C2=A6 Smiley Lewis
Released over here as "Don't Be That Way" which matches the Gale Storm
title on her version of the same song
213 =C2=A6 Just Walking In The Rain =C2=A6 Johnnie Ray
Leaving behind most of his over the top dramatics Ray turns in a truly
excellent performance here on his remake of the Prisonaires song.This
is also one time full marks go to Mitch Miller for his role in this
recording
217 =C2=A6 The Saints Rock 'N Roll =C2=A6 Bill Haley & Comets
My favorite Haley record of the year
225 =C2=A6 Crazy Arms =C2=A6 Ray Price
Biggest Country record of the year in the US making it all the more
puzzling that Ray,despite a huge string of C&W hits in America never
had even ONE single released here in UK in the 1950's!!
242 =C2=A6 You Can't Catch Me =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
Since it's Oscars season my Oscar for best appearance in a 1950's rock
& roll movie goes to Chuck on this number in his wonderful cameo in
"Rock Rock Rock"
307 =C2=A6 Love Me =C2=A6 Elvis Presley
His best ever ballad IMO
327 =C2=A6 Mama's Little Baby =C2=A6 Junior Thompson
Great Memphis RAB.Both sides are great but I give the edge to "Raw
Deal"
336 =C2=A6 Transfusion =C2=A6 Nervous Norvus
"Pass the juice to me Bruce..............."
339 =C2=A6 My Boy Elvis =C2=A6 Janis Martin
"The Female Elvis" as RCA called her. There was this South African
album that had one side by her and the other by Elvis that we got a
ton of money for on the couple of times we got hold of a copy
349 =C2=A6 Champagne Mind (With A Soda Water Income) =C2=A6 Effie Smith
LOL!! One of my very favorite song titles of all time
356 =C2=A6 How Come It =C2=A6 Thumper Jones
There's the legendary story of how the permanently bad tempered George
Jones blew his stack and got really irate and up in the face of some
UK interviewer one time who was foolish enough to ask about the
Thumper Jones record that Jones totally disowned in latter years
405 =C2=A6 The Wayward Wind =C2=A6 Gogi Grant
Here's Grandma Fuck's finest moment on a decent pop record I still
like a lot. Still my favorite version of a much recorded song
407 =C2=A6 The Sun Keeps Shining =C2=A6 Everly Brothers
They recorded four tracks for Columbia but this debut single sold so
very poorly that their contract was immidiately terminated.
427 =C2=A6 Drown In My Own Tears =C2=A6 Ray Charles
We definitely part company on this one that I have Top 20 on my list.
I guess it's because you like the Sonny Thompson/Lula Reed original
better. I like their version a lot too----but Ray absolutely nails
this one!
431 =C2=A6 All The Time =C2=A6 Werly Fairburn
Got a release here on London. Decca kept immaculate records of their
dealings including those with US companies so I always wonder exactly
what royalties found their way to Herman Lubinsky for UK sales on this
one
447 =C2=A6 Shame Shame Shame =C2=A6 Smiley Lewis
I like the different "Baby Doll" version better that was used to
marvellous effect during the famous chase sequence in the Elia Kazan
movie
459 =C2=A6 Just To Hold My Hand =C2=A6 Paul Perryman
Much better than the Clyde McPhatter cover
461 =C2=A6 Now You Has Jazz =C2=A6 Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong
My favorite number from "High Society" is the "Well Did You Evah" duet
between Crosby and Sinatra but the workout with Satch on "Now You Has
Jazz" is excellent too
476 =C2=A6 Clothes Line =C2=A6 Boogaloo
The original (and best) version of the bluesy routine that Leiber &
Stoller later "borrowed" for "Shoppin' For Clothes" for The Coasters
489 =C2=A6 Please Don't Leave Me =C2=A6 Johnny Burnette Trio
Good version previously unreleased of the Domino classic that Coral
unearthed for us for the "Tear It Up" LP
490 =C2=A6 Soldier of Fortune =C2=A6 Drifters
Their very first record to get a UK release
545 =C2=A6 Hot Dog =C2=A6 Young Jessie
Good original of the Elvis number
587 =C2=A6 Can't Help Loving That Girl of Mine =C2=A6 Hide-A-Ways
I remember Val often talking about about how this one was one of his
highspots in his large and impressive R&B vocal groups record
collection
609 =C2=A6 Ain't That Loving You Baby =C2=A6 Eddie Riff
Much better in the 1958 Elvis version that never saw release until
1964
619 =C2=A6 Jambalaya =C2=A6 Brenda Lee
From July 1956 this was the first thing she ever recorded and was her
debut single.Not to be confused with the later 1960 re-recording of
the song by her (with Boots Randolph on sax) that is often found on
later compilations
667 =C2=A6 I Need A Man =C2=A6 Barbara Pittman
Sun's great white hope for a big femme star but a hope that never
materialized (due mainly to total lack of promotion). She cut several
records for the label---I think this one was her best
675 =C2=A6 That's All There Is To That =C2=A6 Nat "King" Cole & Four Knight=
s
My favorite of the several collaberations that Nat did with The Four
Knights group
676 =C2=A6 You Make Me Feel So Young =C2=A6 Frank Sinatra
After "I've Got You Under My Skin" this nice swinger is my second
favorite track on Sinatra's exquisite "Songs For Swingin' Lovers"
album

For decades collectors dated this as either 1955 or 1957, but Val eventually got a copy that came from a radio station and had a date sticker on the label that said Sep 1956.

There will be too much rockabilly on here for Diane, but I am going to 1957=
now.
Comments.......
8 Š Great Balls Of Fire Š Jerry Lee Lewis
Over here this was a #1 for Jerry in NME (that incidentally finally
ends publication today 9th March 2018 with its very last issue).

Decca here altered the flipside substituting his tremendous version of
"Mean Woman Blues" for the US "You Win Again" b-side thus creating one
of my personal Top 10 greatest double-sider singles of all time
20 Š Flying Saucer Rock And Roll Š Billy Riley
Title should be pluralized i.e "Flyin' Saucers Rock & Roll"
21 Š Jingle Bell Rock Š Bobby Helms
I have this on my on Christmas "in-car" tape cos the school kids like
it but I never found much appeal in it. Not one of my Xmas favorites
22 Š Red Hot Š Billy Riley
Along with "Flyin' Saucers..." this is another really great record
from Riley and IMO much better than the mundane Billy "The Kid"
Emerson original
25 Š Rock Around With Ollie Vee Š Buddy Holly
I assume this is the SECOND "Ollie Vee" since it appears here in
1957--the release date of the Decca single.

So presumably this is the version recorded in November 1956 with Grady
Martin (gtr) and Dutch McMillin on sax. If so I put the FIRST version
of the song (minus sax and with Sonny Curtis gtr) recorded in July
1956 well ahead of it . That version lay in the vaults until 1958 when
it first appeared on Holly's Decca LP "That'll Be The Day".

Incidentally this better version was also issued as a single here on
Brunswick in UK in 1959 flipped with the fine "Midnight Shift"
28 Š Jailhouse Rock Š Elvis Presley
First record to enter the NME chart in the #1 position (January 1958)
29 Š Mambo Santa Mambo Š Enchanters
NOW you're talking with Xmas records!! One of the very best!!
33 Š Too Much Š Elvis Presley
It's okay but not one of my favorite Elvis numbers primarily because
Scotty seems to get lost in the middle of the guitar break . It is
however a much more solid performance than the dire original


40 Š Ain't That Love Š Brenda Lee
Brenda meets Ray and turns in a better version of his song IMO
43 Š You Can Do No Wrong Š Carl Perkins
The Sun files have this as recorded January 1957 but some usually
pretty reliable sources (PragueFrank for one) have it recorded in
December 1956
67 Š Mean Woman Blues Š Elvis Presley
No need to mention yet again whose version I rate as easily #1 on this
song blowing Presley,Orbison & all others out of sight!!
80 Š Walking After Midnight Š Patsy Cline
Song was first offered to Kay Starr but was rejected. For those who
haven't heard it here is the actual 1956 original version


84 Š Twenty Flight Rock Š Eddie Cochran
Not the US Liberty single surely?

The alternate movie version (a la "The Girl Can't Help It") is just so
much more powerful (and was the version we got here on the London
single)


109 Š Tall, Dark & Handsome Man Š Bobby Sisco
I like the "Go Go Go" side a little better. We found a few copies of
this in that Chess mountain near Philly that time
113 Š Savoy's Jump Š Jimmy McCracklin
This stomper is one of the very best things he ever did IMO.
Re-released as "Club Savoy" in 1961 on the Gedinson's label
117 Š Maybe Š Chantels
They woke Eisenhower and it very nearly caused a diplomatic incident
with your State Department when a horde of iignorant UK deejays voted
this as the worst record of 1958*

*UK release date
139 Š Cast Iron Arm Š Peanuts Wilson
Hugely popular r&r number over here by the ex-Teen King. So big on the
London r&r scene that it was bootlegged super heavily.
145 Š At The Hop Š Danny & Juniors
Lots of music biz folk we talked to across the USA mentioned this one
as the most "payola-ed" record of the 1950's
156 Š Flatfoot Sam Š Oscar Wills
Aka TV Slim who had a (different) version of the song out under his
own name. But this Wills reading recorded in New Orleans is THE one
for me
157 Š Let The Boogie Woogie Roll Š Clyde McPhatter
Recorded by The Drifters at the "Money Honey" session in 1953 but left
in the vaults until it finally appeared on a rare various artists
Atlantic EP in 1957
176 Š My Special Angel Š Bobby Helms
Always disliked this intensely. The only good thing I can say about it
is that the UK Malcolm Vaughan cover is even worse
177 Š Diana Š Paul Anka
Forget Elvis! "Rock Around The Clock" apart THIS was the biggest
selling American record here in the UK in the 1950's
178 Š Honeycomb Š Jimmie Rodgers
Banned here by BBC for its "religious" connotations we had to make do
with a watered down Marty Wilde version
185 Š Sittin' On Top of The World Š Howlin' Wolf
I like it better in the Jolson version
189 Š Santa Claus is Back in Town Š Elvis Presley
Another of the all time GREAT Christmas records
190 Š Leap Frog Š Chuck Alaimo Quartet
Superb instrumental,one of the best of the year that should be much
more well known than it is
202 Š That's My Desire Š Channels
My favorite version of the much recorded standard. Sorry Frankie!
207 Š Come Go With Me Š Federals
Not on a par with the Dell-Vikings original this cover is nevertheless
worthy of attention and is certainly miles better than the Del-Vikings
1970's remake
213 Š Peggy Sue Š Buddy Holly
Much too low in my estimation and way in front of the rather ordinary
"Everyday" flip
217 Š Goosebumps Š Mac Curtis
Unreleased track by him that King only discovered when they scoured
their vaults for the "Rockabilly Kings" album that we helped compile
231 Š Sick And Tired Š Chris Kenner
We've been here before on this one. Original of the Fats song. I
prefer it by Fats
234 Š Hey! Baby Š Al Ferrier
On Excello and preferable IMO to the "Let's Go Boppin' Tonight"
original he recorded for Goldband
235 Š DeDe Dinah Š Frankie Avalon
Is this a typo? :)
236 Š Daddy Cool Š Rays
I'm with you on this one. I prefer it to the "Silhouettes" hit side
240 Š Louie Louie Š Richard Berry & Pharaohs
Maybe sacrilege but I like this better in the later Kingsmen version
251 Š I'm Walkin' Š Ricky Nelson
One of only three tracks Ricky recorded for Verve who foolishly
"forgot" to tie him to a proper contract allowing Lew Chudd to swoop
in and steal him away from under their noses
271 Š Little Darlin' Š Diamonds
The best version of the song IMO better than the Gladiolas original
283 Š Sputnik Baby Š Roosevelt Sykes
Nice blues rocker on House Of Sound. He re-recorded this in a decent
version in 1960 for Prestige Bluesville (as "Satellite Baby") But I
prefer the original above
341 Š Eager Beaver Baby Š Johnny Burnette Trio
This is credited simply as "Johnny Burnette"
349 Š You Win Again Š Jerry Lee Lewis
We did get this on 45rpm here after "Great Balls Of Fire" with "I'm
Feelin' Sorry" as the flip taken from the rare "The Great Ball Of
Fire" EP)
357 Š Sittin' In The Balcony Š Eddie Cochran
525 Š Completely Sweet Š Eddie Cochran
Over here these were two sides of the same London single
364 Š You've Got Love Š Peanuts Wilson
His version of his own song. Not sure if he recorded it before Holly's
better version or not. It wasn't on YouTube (not here anyway) but it
is now


375 Š Short Shorts Š Royal Teens
Never liked this but I kinda liked the "Planet Rock" flip
389 Š Little Darlin' Š Gladiolas
Much prefer the "Sweetheart Please Don't Go" flip that sounds like it
was recorded in a well stocked and well sampled brewery
404 Š That Long Black Train Š Franklin Stewart
Much higher on my list. On the Lu label for me this is one of the best
RAB numbers of the year
419 Š Your Last Chance Š Lewis Lymon & Teenchords
There's a great sequence in the "Jamboree" movie where space suited
Jocko Henderson introduces these guys performing (or at least lip
syncing) this song
423 Š Mean Woman Blues Š Jerry Lee Lewis
There is a God after all......................!!!
446 Š He's Got The Whole World in His Hands Š Laurie London
And I have my whole head in my HONDS every time I'm unfortunate enough
to hear this dismality
447 Š Dat's Why (I Love You So) Š Al Kent
Original version of Jackie Wilson's "That's Why". The flip "Am I The
Man" is also the original again later by Jackie Wilson
565 Š Wee Willie Brown Š Lou Graham
Most copies I've ever seen were on Coral but this was first released
on Bill Haley's Clymax label
575 Š Love Bug Crawl Š Jim Bullington
The original version of a song that sold much better when re-recorded
for Mercury and when he changed his name to "Jimmy Edwards".

But I too like it better in the Bullington version
581 Š Just For You And I Š Supremes
Here's one from before Diana,Flo and Mary had their sex change ops
595 Š Don't Bug Me Baby Š Milton Allen
This never came out here but the song itself reached these shores
eventually for Cliff Richard to record a version of it
606 Š Sadie Green Š Big "T" Tyler
I dimly remember putting this one up to the old "usual place" in
pre-YouTube times. Reaction here was mixed to say the least-- Norm
liked it,Paula Major thought Tyler had caught his balls in a
vice,Cathy Doyle thought it was ok,Bill hated it and nearly fell out
of his chair and Len Blanks thought it was offside anyway
612 Š Shirley Lee Š Bobby Lee Trammell
Also recorded by Ricky Nelson on one of his LPs. And I like both
versions!
615 Š You Can Make It If You Try Š Gene Allison
The very first Vee Jay single to get a UK release

I have a short audio clip from a couple of years ago of Scotty talking
about this. If anyone wants to hear it, I could email you. And if my
memory serves, I also heard Scotty say that right after that, Elvis gave
him a weird look, but also acknowledged that it was ok.

'When the song was over, Elvis called for a playback. As he listened, he looked at Scotty with a grin. “He knew I had gotten lost, but he loved the way it turned out,” said Scotty. “When the song ended, he raised up and said, ‘That’s it,’ and he did it for damned meanness. He knew I had gotten lost and he knew damned well I would have to live with it.”'

2 Š It'll Be Me (LP Version) Š Jerry Lee Lewis
I'm with you on this one---a ditty incidentally that was penned by
Jack Clement whilst sitting on the toilet at Sun Records which
inspired a famous line in the song that (before a cleaning up job)
originally went "if you see a turd in your toilet bowl,baby it'll be
me and I'll be staring at you...". This version (used for his first
Sun LP) was recorded later than the regular 45rpm reading (it's from
the "Lewis Boogie" summer 1957 session) but is both more solid and
definitely has Jerry in better vocal form
Post by SavoyBG
8 Š Sea Cruise Š Frankie Ford
Bothj sides are great but I give the edge to "Roberta"
Post by SavoyBG
9 Š The Way I Walk Š Jack Scott
His best performance ever IMO. I'm sure Diane agrees :)
Post by SavoyBG
11 Š Rock Around With Ollie Vee (LP Version) Š Buddy Holly
As well as the LP we got this version as a 45rpm release over here too
Post by SavoyBG
26 Š Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby Š Carl Perkins
Heavily based on Rex Griffin's 1936 song of that name which Carl
always maintained he'd never ever heard
Post by SavoyBG
44 Š Hard Headed Woman Š Elvis Presley
Apparently Elvis was scheduled to be filmed singing this in a sequence
for "King Creole". For some reason it never happened and consequently
in the final print the song just plays as background music
Post by SavoyBG
62 Š Leroy Š Jack Scott
Originally recorded as "Greaseball" prior to the ineviable cleanup


Post by SavoyBG
69 Š Midnight Shift Š Buddy Holly
This was the flipside (actually the "A" side) to the UK Brunswick
45rom release of "Rock Around With Ollie Vee" referred to above
Post by SavoyBG
71 Š Red Hot Mama Š Wayne Williams
Here's one we sold a ton of at Moondog's and a favorite rocker of
mine. He didn't record again until the 70's when he cut several
records in Nashville as "Gaylon Wayne"
Post by SavoyBG
74 Š Walking On My Thin Sole Shoes Š Choker Campbell
I never knew this gem until it was first mentioned on here (by you
Bruce?) some years ago
Post by SavoyBG
75 Š Hop Skip And Jump Š Bobby Roberts
84 Š Dig Me A Crazy Record Š Charles Senns
A couple more Moondog's "biggies" courtesy The Marianos
Post by SavoyBG
86 Š Sugar Coated Love Š Lazy Lester
IIRC this was my introduction to Lester (thanks Transat!) and was the
first 45 I ever owned by him. I still consider it one of his very best
Post by SavoyBG
91 Š For Your Precious Love Š Jerry Butler & Impressions
Wow!! #91! So low! This proto-soul masterpiece rates #3 on my 1958
favorites list
Post by SavoyBG
1. Johnny B.Goode Chuck Berry
2. Good Golly Miss Molly Little Richard
3. For Your Precious Love Jerry Butler & Impressions
96 Š Lama Rama Ding Dong Š Edsels
Amusing title fuckup on the original Dub label release
Post by SavoyBG
97 Š It's All In The Game Š Tommy Edwards
Great example of how the same song by the same singer can sound so
very much better second time around
Post by SavoyBG
101 Š Poor Little Fool Š Ricky Nelson
The Billboard Hot Hundred was born in this year and this was its very
first #1 record
Post by SavoyBG
106 Š Run Rudolph Run Š Chuck Berry
Just got done playing the hell out of this again as lead track on my
in-car iPhone Christmas playlist (at least when the kids let me have a
break from "The Chipmunk Song")
Post by SavoyBG
112 Š Rhythm Rockin' Boogie Š John Lee
Not Mr Hooker as some unsuspecting folk might think,but another
Mississippian of that title---this time one John Lee Henley with a
superb rockin' blues originally recorded for J.O.B in 1952 but not
released until 1958. Incidentally the flip "Knockin' On Lula Mae's
Door" is real good too
Post by SavoyBG
113 Š My Girl Š Robin Luke
115 Š Susie Darlin' Š Robin Luke
Don't see the appeal here and never thought much of his "Susie
Darlin'" hit.Both pretty lame entries
Post by SavoyBG
129 Š The Twist Š Hank Ballard & Midnighters
The better King version I assume but Ballard & co actually did "The
Twist" before that---in an unreleased version made for Vee Jay.
Ballard dallied with the label awhile that year when he thought he and
Syd Nathan were going to part company.


Post by SavoyBG
137 Š Mad At Love Š Temptations
One of several other groups of that name besides the most famous
Detroit outfit. These white Temps recorded for Grandpappy Herman at
Savoy and came up with this suprisingly good little effort that used
to sell quite well for us at the store when copies could be found. Not
the same guys as the different again (also white) Temptations from the
NY area that had a 1960 hit with "Barbara"
Post by SavoyBG
142 Š Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu Š Domenico Modugno
I've mentioned many times on here how I dislike all versions of the
"Volare" song even in the Dino cover
Post by SavoyBG
154 Š Every Day Of The Week Š Students
Like you I also rate this over the "I'm So Young" topside. Famous
these days for its inclusion at the end of Mr & Mrs John Sacrimoni's
Request list.........
Post by SavoyBG
156 Š Tom Dooley Š Kingston Trio
Like "Volare" here's another song I can't stand in any version
Post by SavoyBG
160 Š Well I Knocked Bim-Bam Š Gene Vincent & the Blue Caps
Curious (but terrific!) GV number that was never on 45rpm nor on any
of Gene's own Capitol albums at the time but was only available on a
rare various artists "Teenage Rock" LP on Capitol that also sported
tracks by Sonny James,Ferlin Husky & others
Post by SavoyBG
166 Š Lazy Mary (Luna Mezzo Mare) Š Lou Monte
The song famously featured in Connie's wedding sequence in "The
Godfather". Here's the version from the 1951 battle


Post by SavoyBG
167 Š Manhattan Spiritual Š Reg Owen
I have to wave the flag for this one,a rare good British pop
instrumental that deservedly also became a US hit
Post by SavoyBG
174 Š Wild One Š Jerry Lee Lewis
The best version IMO of the song---a song usually better known as
"Real Wild Child"----and originally done by Aussie r&r star Johnny
O'Keefe. Jerry had been on tour in Oz earlier with O'Keefe on the same
bill which is where he heard the number and filed it away in his head
for further use
Post by SavoyBG
175 Š Number Nine Train Š Tarheel Slim
Song originally set by Chess to be Dale Hawkins' followup to his big
"Susie-Q" hit. He even appeared on American Bandstand lip synching to
the recording before Chess pulled the plug and cancelled release
Post by SavoyBG
184 Š Let's Go Booping Tonight Š Al Ferrier
Actually recorded for Eddie Shuler's Goldband label in 1956 it was
passed up for release at that time leading to Ferrier re-recording the
song a year later (as "Hey! Baby") for Jay Miller at Excello leading
to the songs first release in 1957. Belatedly Goldband issued their
(superior IMO) version in 1958 (complete with label title error :) .
Both label owners managed to screw Ferrier out of some of the meagre
writing royalties with the Excello credits going to "Ferrier-Miller"
and the Goldband to "Ferrier-Shuler"
Post by SavoyBG
200 Š Rockin' Rufus Š Ramon Maupin
I've never seen the big thing about this one ever since Piers Chalmers
(I think it was he) proudly claimed at the time ownership of the only
copy of the record in the UK
Post by SavoyBG
207 Š Lonesome Baby Blues Š David Ray
Cool RAB from Ray Smith (recording as "David Ray" here) who did "Gone
Baby Gone" in 1956 on Heart. This is a different guy to the more
famous Ray Smith of "Rockin' Little Angel" fame on Judd and Sun
Post by SavoyBG
215 Š Rave On Š Sonny West
The original version on Atlantic. Interesting to hear but much better
in Buddy's version
Post by SavoyBG
219 Š One For My Baby Š Frank Sinatra
Sinatra recorded this one several times in his career but never
bettered this 1958 classic that appeared on his "Only The Lonely" LP
that year
Post by SavoyBG
223 Š Lights Out Š Jerry Byrne
New Orleans classic recorded by the 17 year old white Byrne and
written by the then same-aged future Dr John. Hugely popular number
that was NEVER out of stock at Moondog's thanks to Specialty keeping
it available from their catalog right into the 70's.
Post by SavoyBG
234 Š Itchy Twitchy Feeling Š Bobby Hendricks
I always preferred the "A Thousand Dreams" flip
Post by SavoyBG
252 Š There's A Moon Out Tonight Š Capris
Originally on Planet label in 1958 it had a convoluted history before
finally charting on an Old Town reissue the last week of the year in
1960
Post by SavoyBG
273 Š Ubangi Stomp Š Jerry Lee Lewis
My favorite version of the song. I prefer this to Warren Smith's.
Post by SavoyBG
281 Š Pardon Mr. Gordon Š Rod Bernard
The best side of his "This Should Go On Forever" hit
Post by SavoyBG
284 Š Rockin' Record Hop Š Carl Perkins
One of the very best things Carl did in his first stint at Columbia.
Amazing that they left this unreleased for decades.
Post by SavoyBG
287 Š Dinner With Drac Š Zacherle
I remember when I first came on this group how several members pleaded
with me to get them copies of the slightly different UK London release
of this one
Post by SavoyBG
306 Š Wild Cherry Š Leroy Washington
Big record on the UK r&r scene in 70's. Heavily booted.
Post by SavoyBG
311 Š When Š Kalin Twins
#1 on the UK chart and a big favorite of mine at the time.They
appeared on tour over here backing up the bill to Cliff Richard
Post by SavoyBG
332 Š The Chipmunk Song Š Chipmunks
No more please!! I'll confess to anything you want but ....please...no
more!!
Post by SavoyBG
338 Š Drop Top Š Roy Perkins
Always liked this one. I have a Ram original but most copies I've seen
are on Mercury reissue
Post by SavoyBG
348 Š King Creole Š Elvis Presley
Released as a 45rpm here b/w "Dixieland Rock"
Post by SavoyBG
357 Š My Baby Just Cares For Me Š Nina Simone
A #4 UK hit in November 1987 due to its heavy use in a TV ad for
Chanel perfume. The record had never been issued as a single here
previously
Post by SavoyBG
372 Š You're So Square (Baby I Don't Care) Š Buddy Holly
A UK hit in 1961. Many sources show a US Coral 45rpm release that year
too but I believe that issue was only made in Canada
Post by SavoyBG
379 Š White Cliffs Of Dover Š Pharoahs
Pretty good version of the standard. I have the rare UK Decca EP on
which this first appeared. Recorded in London the group were four
black US servicemen then currently serving in West Germany.
Post by SavoyBG
380 Š The Little Drummer Boy Š Harry Simeone Chorale
I always liked liked this one and its on my Christmas playlist. Sadly
it is never played anymore on UK radio and hasn't been heard for years
because of its connection with the infamous 1960's Moors Murders
Post by SavoyBG
404 Š Where Or When Š Frank Sinatra
Recorded for the 1958 "Only The Lonely" album but cut from the LP at
the last minute. I believe the first release was on his 1978 LP "Rare
Sinatra"
Post by SavoyBG
431 Š Real Wild Child Š Ivan
As I said earlier Jerry Lee does easily the best version of this (as
"Wild One"). The stupid voice Jerry Allison adopts here on his version
simply grates on me
Post by SavoyBG
444 Š Rack 'Em Back Š Walter Spriggs
Not the Bobby MItchell song. Spriggs earlier was a member of the Five
Echoes group who recorded earlier for Sabre and Vee Jay
Post by SavoyBG
446 Š Texas Flood Š Larry Davis
Another of my favorites of the year. He also had the superb "Angels In
Houston" a little later that inspired the famous "I Know Houston Can't
Be Heaven" series of Mike Leadbitter Blues Unlimited essays
Post by SavoyBG
468 Š Peter Gunn Š Henry Mancini
I like Mancini's original version but the definitive version IMO is
that of Duane Eddy who might have scored his biggest hit ever if Jamie
had been a little more on the ball and made it a US single earlier

Phew! Can I come up for air now?

These guys were from Bayonne, NJ. Sounds like it's modeled after "At The Hop," except it features the guitar rather than the piano.

I agree with you!!!!!! Bruce claims he doesn't see the appeal of "Roberta"
(or "Louberta" either). It's that stormin', hard rockin' piano, for me.

His best performance ever IMO. I'm sure Diane agrees :)

For me his best performances are the later ones where he sings in a human
voice.

No, I like them. "Roberta" is on this list, but it's nowhere near a classic like "Sea Cruise."

Just rapped up the 1958 list. My year playlists usually end after the top song with an instrumental that is not on the list. This one ended with this:

Perfect!
"The Toddle" by Little Walter. Flip side of "Confessing The Blues."
Guitarists were Luther Tucker & Jimmie Lee Robinson, didn't say who played
the solo.

13 ¦ Baby What You Want Me To Do ¦ Jimmy Reed

wrong ?

This also came up on my ride this morning, and I was thinking...
Even with the vary varied tastes of this newsgroup, I'd venture to guess
that this might be one of the few songs that no one dislikes. Would I be
wrong ?
Not in my case, and I listened expecting to dislike it.
You mean you were not familiar with it before you listened?

That would be correct. I may have heard it, but don't recall. I can count on one finger the number of Blues artists for who I sought out songs, except Jimmie Rodgers, if he counts.

It's a very famous song. I can't believe that Bill did not know it. It was a top 40 national hit in 1960.

-----------------
I remember it. And I know I remember it *from 1960*, because that and "Big
Boss Man" were among the few records I remembered when I started listening
to blues albums my friends had in high school (this would be in 1963-64).

Maybe that sentence wasn't clear. I'm trying to say that when I was a
senior in high school (age 15-16) in 1963-64, some of my friends had
compilation blues albums. When I listened to them at these friends' houses,
I remembered hearing "Baby What You Want Me To Do" and "Big Boss Man" on the
radio, even though I could not have told you the artist's name.

How strange it sounds in 2018 that you had to go to somebody's *house* to
listen to records!

1952 will be done in a few minutes and I will be moving on to my favorites =
of 1959.
A few comments :-
1 =C2=A6 You're So Fine =C2=A6 Falcons
Undoubtedly the best R&B vocal group record of the year. #2 for 1959
with me
2 =C2=A6 Dead Man's Stroll =C2=A6 Revels
I like this one but #2?? We got it over here (as most buyers in the US
did too) as "Midnight Stroll"
3 =C2=A6 What'd I Say =C2=A6 Ray Charles
Assume thiis is the full unedited version. The one that is my #1 for
the year
9 =C2=A6 Beyond The Sea =C2=A6 Bobby Darin
I prefer "Mack The Knife" but Darin's update on Trenet's "La Mer" is
pretty spellbinding as was his whole career style change at this time
14 =C2=A6 Love's Made A Fool Of You =C2=A6 Crickets
I like this one fine but my favorite post-Holly Crickets number is "I
Fought The Law" that was a Coral single here
16 =C2=A6 Don't Mess With My Man =C2=A6 Irma Thomas
I rate the sublime "Wish Someone Would Care" as her best but no doubt
that her debut here on Ron is superb too
24 =C2=A6 Love Potion # 9 =C2=A6 Clovers
Both are great but I dig the original "Love Potion #10" version best
26 =C2=A6 Broken Hearted Melody =C2=A6 Sarah Vaughan
Her best by a mile and she keeps good company on my 1959 pop favorites
list

1. Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife
2. Bobby Darin - Beyond The Sea
3. Sarah Vaughan - Broken Hearted Melody
45 =C2=A6 Kansas City =C2=A6 Wilbert Harrison
After Littlefield this is my favorite version. It was certainly the
first version of the song I ever heard
60 =C2=A6 Dedicated To The One I Love =C2=A6 Shirelles
I like this better than the original 5 Royales. IIRC I think you do
too?
64 =C2=A6 Mountain Of Love =C2=A6 Harold Dorman
The ONE song that I think is much better in the Johnny Rivers
version!!
65 =C2=A6 Running Bear =C2=A6 Johnny Preston
Yuk! I can't stand this. Do you like the very similar "Rockin' Red
Wing" by Sammy Masters too?
66 =C2=A6 Bad Girl =C2=A6 Miracles
Stone classic by them and the first record on Motown before it was
picked up by Chess
73 =C2=A6 Tell Him No =C2=A6 Travis & Bob
We've disagreed on this one before too. Lightweight pop song that I
dislike in all its several versions
81 =C2=A6 Money =C2=A6 Barrett Strong
Best version of the much recorded anthem. Only version that ever came
anywhere near was a live workout on the song I saw Jerry Lee do at a
London show
85 =C2=A6 Special Lesson No. 1 =C2=A6 Billy Tate
Yeah this is a real good 'un by the guy who had the splendid "Single
Life" on Imperial
86 =C2=A6 Believe What You Say (LP Version) =C2=A6 Ricky Nelson
I wondered why this was missing on your '58 list.
100 =C2=A6 Memphis, Tennessee =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
Much too low for this absolute classic. Here's my take :-

1. What'd I Say Ray Charles
2. You're So Fine Falcons
3. Memphis Tennessee Chuck Berry
103 =C2=A6 Anthony Boy =C2=A6 Chuck Berry
From the sublime to the faintly ridiculous....one Chuck number I never
liked at all
104 =C2=A6 Midnight Flyer =C2=A6 Nat King Cole
Yes his best for the year I agree and high on my 1959 pop list

1. Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife
2. Bobby Darin - Beyond The Sea
3. Sarah Vaughan - Broken Hearted Melody
4. Dinah Washington - What A Diff'rence A Day Makes
5. Nat "King" Cole - Midnight Flyer
107 =C2=A6 My Last Meal =C2=A6 Jimmy Rogers
Not bad retread of Hurricane Harry's 1956 "Last Meal"
112 =C2=A6 Tallahassee Lassie =C2=A6 Freddy Cannon
Here's another guy I could never stand. However there's one
exception---"Buzz Buzz A Diddle It" which grabs me some
113 =C2=A6 The Battle Of New Orleans =C2=A6 Johnny Horton
Re-recorded by Horton for the UK market in a version which is much
kinder to us not-so-bloody Brits---but which of course completely
rewrites history
123 =C2=A6 Forty Days =C2=A6 Ronnie Hawkins
Talking of rewrites here's ole Ronnie with his take on the Chuck Berry
song---and naturally taking songwriting credit for it too
138 =C2=A6 Goin' Home =C2=A6 Rosco Gordon
My very first encounter with Rosco (and the only record he ever had
out over here in the 50's). Both sides are great but the side here was
"Just A Little Bit" that was still being played in the London R&B
clubs well into the '60's
142 =C2=A6 My Rifle, My Pony And Me =C2=A6 Dean Martin & Ricky Nelson
They work well together on this memorable ditty from "Rio Bravo" in
which both starred
158 =C2=A6 Heartaches By The Number =C2=A6 Ray Price
I'm surprised there seemed to be no place for his "City Lights" biggie
in your '58 list?
162 =C2=A6 Primrose Lane =C2=A6 Jerry Wallace
Another one I never could stand
165 =C2=A6 It Must Be Love =C2=A6 Al Downing
Not up to "Down On The Farm" in 1958
170 =C2=A6 (Sorry) I Ran All The Way Home =C2=A6 Impalas
Original copies read simply "I Ran All The Way Home". There's no
"Sorry"
176 =C2=A6 There Goes My Baby =C2=A6 Drifters
I know you dislike them but IMO the strings definitely enhance this
one.
201 =C2=A6 Woo-Hoo =C2=A6 Rock-A-Teens
I have this on original Doran (before Roulette picked it up) which we
found in small quantity in Philly
202 =C2=A6 Turn Me Loose =C2=A6 Fabian
His best IMO and better than versions by Dion,Cliff Richard etc
205 =C2=A6 Just Keep It Up =C2=A6 Dee Clark
I also liked his version of "Whispering Grass" on back of this
227 =C2=A6 Black Cadillac =C2=A6 Joyce Green
Nice one!! One of my favorite femme r&r records of the 50's
230 =C2=A6 Lipstick On Your Collar =C2=A6 Connie Francis
One of the best guitar solos on any record courtesy George Barnes
237 =C2=A6 Brand New Cadillac =C2=A6 Vince Taylor
Decent rock 'n' roll number recorded here in UK and released on
pre-Beatles Parlophone label by EMI
245 =C2=A6 It Was I =C2=A6 Skip & Flip
251 =C2=A6 Here Comes Summer =C2=A6 Jerry Keller
Ending up with two more numbers I never ever warmed to
(Keller hit #1 with his record over here btw)

Unique record. I'm not surprised that we are parting company on a lot of 1959 stuff as the sound was changing a lot. My list is much shorter than my 1958 list.

What does that have to do with anything?

That's what I was thinking!!! Brucie favors what the mob is dancing to and not to what his sophisticated and visceral soul is telling him about a particular song.

It really ain't what's coming from the speakers rather than how man clods are hoppin' on the dance floor, baby!!!
