Hot Smoke and Sassafras by Bubble Puppy is one of my all time fave OHW's
What's interesting to me is that Walter keeps looking over at the female singer and she either closes her eyes or looks the other way. He does seem a little creepy.
They also had "I Woke Up in Love This Morning."
He also had a couple hits as a solo artist, Don't Shed A Tear was one of them.
But there's apparently quite a few singers like that. A lot of so called one hit wonder groups turn out to be just a group of studio musicians, shepherded by a given producer, sometimes even with the same singer, who put out multiple records under different group names, but it's really (mostly) the same people on each one. I was reading about one singer, forget his name now,b ut it some was English bloke who bills himself as a "five time one hit wonder", because he sang on that many hit singles, each credited under a different band name. I believe Beach Baby by First Class was one of them.
OHW from this Miami band in the 60s. Kollektion
And Gary S. Paxton, who sang lead, not to mention Dallas Frazier, who wrote it and is still around.
But it's still a one-hit wonder.
Sheb Wooley had a bunch of country hits.
As an actor, he was responsible for the Wilhelm Scream.
My Boy Lollipop was such a huge hit it's surprising that Millie only scraped into the top 40 with her follow ups.
I had always assumed it was an original song but it's a cover of a fifties RnB tune.
The original Jamaican release has a sax solo over dubbed for the international market with harmonica. No one seems to know who did the harp session although possibles include Rod Stewart.
The very wonderful Ernest Ranglin on guitar, he's on a lot of the sixties Jamaican releases including early Bob Marley. I highly recommend his solo jazz releases.
In a mighty leap of imagination it reminds me of Ain't Going Down Til the Sun Comes Up by Garth Brooks which had the fiddle solo removed and replaced by guitar for the UK version.
One of the less likely U.K. number ones. I really like it although I know many people find it an abomination.
He didn't have a hit with Sealed With A Kiss, and another gold disc*, in the States then?
*Gold discs meant something then
