October 8, 2017 Record of the Day

One of the classic Pop songs of the early Rock N Roll era was “Lollipop.” Reportedly, songwriter Julius Dixon was late for a recording session as a result of his daughter getting a lollipop stuck in her hair. Thus, an inspiration for a song was born. First recorded by Ronald and Ruby, the song hit the charts in 1957. But it’s the version by the Chordettes that most remember. Their single hit #2 in 1958. Released on Cadence records, the 45 is worth up to $50.00 while the 78 rpm version can sell for $100.00 today.
