Little Richard - "Ready Teddy"

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.

Donnie Elbert - Believe It Or Not

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.

Shane Fenton and the Fentones (sparkling brown eyes)

Great Track, from what i can tell from this track this a track from a session recorded live at the BBC , never released on a vinyl , it might have come from his own radio show at the time (1962)called swing along with Shane ! Great Jiver!!!!

Gentle On My Mind

Glen Campbell is one bad SOB...
You take all these shredders that hide behind 16 effects and give them that ovation and I guarantee you Glen would make send them all home crying to mama.... I personally play this song in my acoustic duo and I can tell you every time I play this song the whole room gets quiet and listens. This song is one of the best ever..

The Vanguards ( Roll over Beethoven )

Great version of Roll Over Beethoven, a great fast paced jiver of a classic track

Cliff Gallup - September in the rain - Rare Recording !!!!

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!

Vince Everett - Such A Night - 1962 45rpm

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
