Im not the biggest Little Richard Fan, but boy does this track want to make you move! i think its literally impossible not to tap your feet while listening, dont even matter if your not a rock n' roll fan. you know those corny movies where everyone in the neighborhood has a stick up their ass through the movie till a bad ass gets out a guitar and just starts wailing some thing that bumps! yeah i picture this song everytime.

Great Post from Donnie Elbert! Classic Doo wop, but a great jiver none the less. Play this song and get ready to pack the dance floor. As much as i like "Have I Sinned" this track takes it out by far, this is what i found on him Elbert was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, but when aged three his family relocated to Buffalo, New York. He learned to play guitar and piano as a child, and in 1955 formed a doo-wop group, the Vibraharps, with friend Danny Cannon.

Great version of Roll Over Beethoven, a great fast paced jiver of a classic track
Gorgeous. There's a story that when the Blue Caps went to Nashville to record, the producer had Grady Martin and Hank Garland standing by in case Cliff couldn't cut it. Grady and Hank heard Cliff warming up, laughed at the producer, turned around and walked out. Don't know if it's true, but it could have been!

this is a great jiver vince everette(marvin benfield) was awesome. this is more of a copy of elvis than his other songs. check out livin high, sweet flavors. he has the timing of elvis down to a science. most singers don't have the timing and spark. in his other songs, he doesn't try to sound like elvis. his timing and rhythm is the key

What more can i say about the great Wynonie Harris? His music was great, he played rhythm and blues right before rock n' roll hit, yet he never trully gets the respect he deserves. great jiver

Just listen to that tremelo in the intro!! ultimate bopper dance floor filler! It was approx a year ago that I came across this song. I checked it out over the title alone and loved it. Insts were real big back in the doowop era with mainstream artists like Duane Eddy & The Tornados (Telstar). I only heard 3 hits by this band and yet youtube tells me otherwise. More recently I came across Tornado by Dale Hawkins and like it!.

Fantastic Stroller from Little Willie John, this song is just as raunchy as its composer! Little Willie John actually got arrested years latter for murder, and died a little while after in jail.

They may have the faggiest name in all of rock n' roll history, but the gaylords did produce one great song. I've listened to some of their other catalog and frankly im not impressed, they sound like a poor man's Dean Martin. But Ma-Ma-Ma Marie is a solid jiver, and one that will make any rock n' roll dance floor jam packed!

Just listen to that barritone voice! The lead singer of this group (the Spaniels) was Pookie Hudson in this song however Gerald Gregory is singing; apart from this masterpiece, which by the way was a remake of a song in the play Oklahoma, they are best known for recording "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, which is a great track in itself and would of propelled the spaniels to more success had it not been for the McGuire Sisters covering the song and gaining them the success that was due to the Spaniels. Anyway this is a great jiver, and great song to dance to.

Great rare jiver by Bill Haley, this song is a spanish remake of Chubby Checker's ""Lets Twist Again". This song was recorded in 1962, while Bill Haley moved to Acapulco (Mexico).
