September 6, 2017 Record of the Day

One of the most popular singers of the late 50’s and early 60’s was Dee Clark. When Little Richard gave up Rock N Roll to become a preacher, Dee Clark filled in with Richard’s band, the Upsetters, to finish Richard’s current tour. Clark’s biggest hit “Raindrops” from 1961 sold a million copies. He also reached the Billboard top-20 with “Just Keep it Up” and “Hey Little Girl (in the High School Sweater).” The 45 of “Hey Little Girl,” released on Abner records in 1959, with its picture sleeve can get you $100.00 today.
