johnny burnette rnr trio bertha lou/ till the law says stop

this is a weird little 45, i think i have the story 1955 while on the way to california, the rnr trio rented SUN STUDIOS to record a 4 song demo for CORAL RECORDS, we have two songs here...well three, the song bertha lou and till the law says stop {the demos} were not released till 1962 on surf records i think but.....dorseys vocals were over dubbed with johnny faire, aka donnie brooks, while bertha lou as far as i can see, the vocals remained johnny i have till the law says stop with the original vocals from HYDRA RECORDS, just dorsey singing..the surf 45, from 1962, has johnnie faire aka donnie brooks,dubbed on top of dorseys vocals...later on on the CEEJAM label the "original" vocals were released, on a 45 so here we go
bertha lou...raw amazing and the best version i've ever heard {demo version}
till the law says stop...overdubbed johnny faire vocals
till the law says stop..original vocals
confused yet? written by johnny marascalco..aka johnny burnette
all this confusion happend because of this time johnny and dorsey had seperate record contracts with differant labels any way enjoy!!

we have all heard "wild weekend", a rockin guitar instro, by the rockin rebels, but before they were the rockin rebels, they were the "HOT TODDYS"..i think we all know why they changed thier name..not to rocknroll there...then they went overboard with thier new name "THE ROCKIN REBELS" anywhoo i have two 45's under both names..both 45's have ROCKIN' CRICKETS, while the small SHAN TODD label {named after two members who were in the hot toddys} have a rockin vocal of "SHAKIN AND STOMPIN", and of course i have a canadian pressing of the ROCKIN REBELS ...WILD WEEKEND, so enjoy these 45's of the HOT TODDYS AKA ROCKIN REBELS.
