Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon was a constant hit-maker in the early 1960’s with 22 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 including “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans” and “Palisades Park.” His first hit “Tallahassee Lassie” peaked at #6 in 1959. The song, originally called “Rock and Roll Baby,” was written by Freddy’s mother. The original 45 was released on Swan records and worth up to $40.00. But in Canada it was also released as a 78 on Quality records. That can get you $100.00 today.
