From 1959, please enjoy guitar slinging Ray Sharpe...
...and his slyly infectious and verbally challenging "Linda Lu."
In last week's Listomania, both Sharpe and the song were name-checked by a lucky reader who had seen him perform it on a Dick Clark tour (also from 1959). I must confess I had never heard of either artist or record previously, but it turns out to be a genuine rockabilly cult classic -- the list of people who've covered it includeds The Flying Burrito Brothers, Delbert McClinton, The Kingsmen, Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, and Tom Jones.
Hell, even the Some Girls-era Rolling Stones took a shot at it.
It remains unreleased, however, although it's not bad at all.
