Dwain Louis and Classmates - "That's All Right"
Greetings and a happy Tuesday to everyone. Went to the St. Louis record show on Sunday and made out pretty well, as usual. I hope to post a list of my best finds here later in the week. Not a lot of time today, so I'm sort of throwing a post together.
Today's record is something I found in an antique mall last week. For those who don't know, I live in a rural area, dotted with small towns. There are lots of flea markets, antique places, thrift shops and the like to check out and I've had some pretty good luck lately. Case in point, "That's All Right" by Dwain Louis and Classmates. I found this lurking amongst some trashed 60's hits and pristine looking 50's pop. Not sure how this monster wound up in the stash but it was certainly priced right, so I brought it home not knowing what a great record it is.
Here, we have a tremendous, rockin' version of the Arthur Crudup tune, recorded by Elvis and many others. Info is very scant on the record, though it has been comped a time or two. The year is unknown. The artist is all but unknown. If anyone can fill in the blanks, I'd be grateful.
