The Impalas are best known for their 1959 hit "Sorry (I Ran All The
Way Home)". "Woodchuck Song" comes from the album of that name:

Great track! Doo wop is the business. I remember reading that the thump in the chorus began life as a door slamming somewhere in the studio building and it sounded so right they made it part of the song!

This song from 1952 features in the film Brooklyn, which we watched last night:

Had this song on my mind during the walk this morning, when we bumped
into a dog we usually see barking enthusiastically at us from a window.
Patti Page sang the original but Lita Roza took it to #1 in the UK in 1953.

Early days now. From 1951, this is Frankie Laine and the chilling "Jezebel":

Enjoyed that! Very interesting, with the style and beat.

Endless Harmony poster kirkk has recently backed Wanda Jackson on keyboards, which means that he's one handshake away from all the great '50s rock'n'rollers!!! The Party Begins: Music of the 1950s Rolleyes

This is "Mean, Mean Man" which curiously was a top 40 hit in the UK only. Ms Jackson would have to wait until 1960 for her big transatlantic hit, "Let's Have A Party".

Heard this ancient classic blasting in a market hall in Pickering, Yorkshire. The Party Begins: Music of the 1950s Tongue They had a rack of '50s and early '60s CDs as well.

With all due respect to DGQ, it looks like I'm stranded in the jungle that is Smiley:

I heard this today on BBC Radio 3 during their "Sounds of the Earth" feature which today came from the swamps of Louisiana. I'd often read about Phil Phillips's "Sea Of Love" but never heard it until today. Love that bass voice and the shift up to A major in the 11th bar.
