 The grandaddy of all rock & roll instrumentals, a huge American hit at the time on both the R&B and pop charts, influencing an awful lot of people, most notably Bill Black's Combo. Still sounds good today, at least to me. Organist Doggett contented himself with fleshing out the rhythm so guitarist Billy Butler could stretch out. And if you like tenor sax, Clifford Scott takes over on part 2. I imagine this got a lot of jukebox play in America at the time. Listen to part 2 at:
