Music to keep me SANE in Isolation – Don and Dewey

I felt like needing to be a bit jaunty today so I opted for something uplifting and bouncy. Don and Dewey hit the mark.

They were signed to the Specialty label who were trying to cultivate new Rock ‘n’ Roll stars in the mold of Little Richard.

They didn’t really have a hit but wrote and recorded a number of other songs recorded by big stars – such as Farmer John, I’m Leaving It All Up To You and Justine.

They were part Rock ‘n’ Roll and part R&B – a kind of precursor for Soul and acts like Sam and Dave.

I like their power, enthusiasm and the way their two voices duel. In real life they hated one another!

So today it’s Don and Dewey! They’ll blow your ears off!!

I'd like to hear from you...
