JERRY LEE LEWIS on Al Jolson. “When I was 12, I walked into a theater in Ferriday Louisiana. They played a song by Al Jolsen, Down Among the Sheltering Pines. The way Jolsen did it, each word stood out like an electrified stop...
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
