Today 1939 Freddy 'boom boom' Cannon born

Today 1942 is the birthday of Chris Hillman and today 1993 we think about the death of Frank Zappa. You can find something about both elsewhere on my Blog.

Today is also Freddy 'boom boom' Cannon's birthday : he was born as Frederick Anthony Picariello in the North Boston suburb of Lynn, Massachusetts.
He learned to play guitar as a boy and in high school formed a band. Singing vocals, he emulated the hard-driving style of singing star Little Richard. Freddy Cannon eventually signed with Swan Records in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a recording studio in which music promoter Dick Clark had an interest, and who brought him national exposure through numerous appearances on the television program, American Bandstand.
See for Dick Clark and American Bandstand a few days ago : 30 november.
See for Freddy Cannon's biography the History of rock site.

Do you remember his great hits Tallahassee Lassie, Way Down Yonder In New Orleans, Palisades Park, Muskrat Ramble and Transistor Sister ?

Here I present you two fine albums recorded august 1959-1962 in one offer.
The explosive Freddy Cannon & Freddy Cannon sings happy shades of blue
My favorite of this collection is The blacksmith blues so well known by the original 1952 version of Ella Mae Morse. What's your favorite song ?
You know by now where to look and to give comments about these nice 28 songs !

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

This file is a small 65MB, 'cause the songs are only in 128kbits
