Singles Collection Episode 62: Ralph Marteire Rocks Out The Barrel
Ralph Marterie achieved his highest success in the U.S. charts with a cover of "Skokiaan" in 1954. He attempted to blur the lines between big band music and rock and roll by covering versions of Bill Haley's "Crazy, Man, Crazy" amongst other early rock and roll hits. It was an interesting single in my dad's collection that brought him to my attention. A song called "Rock and Roll The Barrel". It's a rather up-tempo pop number that tickles the ear. See if you think so when you take a listen. Enjoy!
