Juke Jules, do we call you Juke or Jules ? The gob iron player on

Get the Bear Family double CD set for the lot, Brilliant stuff.
Yes, this is indeed a good record. I remember it getting played on TYLS and Janice 'oi'l give it foive' Nichols said it was too much like 'Great Balls of Fire' and only gave it a low score. Don't care much for the B side, Gob Irons are a no no on Rock n roll records, unless, of course it's Little Walter.
David McKee's informative mini-bio against Jerry Lee's 'Lewis Boogie' mentions this Mercury cut, which I've always felt came close (but not quite close enough) to those early hit singles. For all that, it's a disc that deserved more plays, but received virtually none this side of the water that I can recall.
