A great song from the Cleftones / This Little Girl of Mine /
Sun Records had other artists than Elvis, unfortunately because of money a lot of them did not get the exposure they should have. It was called Rock and Roll, but in 2013 it’s called Rockabilly and Charlie Feathers made two great songs that are never played / One Hand Loose and Bottle to the Baby /
Staying in the “Rockabilly Vane” (it was just Rock and Roll) a Texan named Mac Curtis had 2 good songs in 56 / If I had me a Woman / Granddaddy’s Rockin’ /
We mainly got Pat Boone’s “I’ll Be Home“, but when we finally heard the original, it was no contest / The Flamingos /
The Great Johnny Burnette, brother Dorsey and the great Paul Burlison, recorded a song that Alvin Lee Plays today, one of my favourite’s / Tear it Up /
Little Richard, Fats Domino, Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and the list goes on, but a crude song recorded in a church basement would be one of my all-time favourites. They tried re-recording it but decided to stay with the original crude mono recording of “In the Still of the Night” by the Five Satins with Fred Paris. One of the best “make out” songs of my generation /
Clyde McPhatter, would have a great song that year, which is never played, called the Treasure of Love.
A song that was banned everywhere, because it was a hit in 1956 / One Night of Sin / Smiley Lewis /
One of Sun’s greatest finds, who just did not make it, was wailin’ in 1956 / Sonny Burgess / We Wanna Boogie and the flip side Red Headed Woman /
Also from Sun Records, really difficult to purchase, Warren Smith and Ubangi Stomp .
