Bill Doggett

This guy had some kind of career going on for a few years, he had 8 top 100 singles, but all he is remembered for now is Honky Tonk. That’s how it goes.

Bill Doggett:

Honky Tonk (Part 1) – The A side of the single, but it was the B side that was the hit.
Honky Tonk (Part 2) – One of the great rock and roll instrumentals of the 50, which is interesting because it’s so basic. There are many many cover versions of this; The Ventures did a great version on their Rock And Roll Forever album. This was a hit in the fall of 1956.
