Like a lotta legends, Alabama boy HANK WILLIAMS grew up poor, lived fast and died young. Died in the back seat of a moving cadillac. Story goes he was given his first guitar and learned his music from a black street musician called Tee-Tot....
Our next honored song was released in 1955 by Atlantic Records. It only reached #10 R&B but reached #1 in our hearts and the raspberry red 45 played on every jukebox in our southeast beaches. This witty and memorable laid back party tune was also written by the great Rudy Toombs.
“Goin to the party, get with the bunch.
Got a dollar for my nippin and a dime for my lunch”
Still beloved and requested by shaggers...NIP SIP by the CLOVERS
