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:

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

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.

LOL...I had no idea! But after knowing who it is it seems obvious...

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).
