Dave Edmunds brought this song back to the charts with a rocking guitar version released in 1970. In his version, he namechecks some of his musical contemporaries, including Smiley Lewis, who originally recorded the song, and Fats Domino, who also covered it.
It was Edmunds' first single; the song did very well in America, but far better in his native UK (he's Welsh), where it was one of the biggest selling singles of all time to that point. He had several other UK hits, following up with another retro cover: "Baby, I Love You
," which made #8 in 1973. He had a number of other hits in his native Britain, among them "Queen of Hearts
" and "I Knew The Bride (When She Used To Rock & Roll)." These were also minor hits in the US (where Juice Newton's 1981 cover of "Queen of Hearts" would also reach #2), but Edmunds' only other American Top 40 hit was 1983's "Slipping Away," which just barely made the list at #39.
