Re: “The Killer is back

Jerry Lee Lewis’ breakout hit, “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” was recorded at Sun Records in one take as a probable B-side. Lewis, backed by just drums and a lead guitar, knew it was a hit as soon as he cut it. Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/iSotWm tells how the song, co-written by Dave “Curlee” Williams and pianist Roy Hall in 1954, did not originate with Lewis; it was covered a few times without success until Jerry Lee hit the top ten in 1957.
