Blind Musical Taste Test #7 - Early Rock and Roll

Here's something from the early 60's that's pretty interesting. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but hopefully it makes for a fun conversation.

Let's just say if you don't know who this is you will probably be shocked.

If you do know, please don't post who it is. Thanks!

Well, I loved it. I'm a sucker for stuff like that. I liked it so much that I couldn't help myself and looked it up and you're right...

Spoiler:
I was shocked!


And not that this is related, but the sound of that song compelled me to post what I think is one of the most underrated songs of the early 60's:

I like this song more than anything else you posted and wanted to look it up as well. Absolutely a surprise. Nice find.

Nice tune. And it's a b-side.

I heard that song on a radio show a few months ago. Kind of charming in its own way.

I have to agree that this is the best thing posted so far. I, like Suprmallet, am a bit of a sucker for this kind of thing. It just makes me feel good inside.

Nice vocals, but this isn't really my kind of thing. Seems like a standard issue late 50s/early 60s pop song.

Ronne Dio & The Prophets (although I couldn't remember the name of his band)
This track proves that a good singer is a good singer, no matter the style.

You've really never heard of
Spoiler:
Ronnie James Dio, aka Dio, lead singer of Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell (and Elf)? He's only of the most recognizable voices in hard rock/metal of all time.

Actually, the full name does sound vaguely familiar, but Metal is not my genre at all, so I avoid anything to do with it (though I do like some AOR and Melodic Rock, which often have shades of Metal in them).
