June 23, 2014 Record of the Day

Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon was a constant hit-maker in the early 1960s 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. Find the value for every record by Freddy Cannon and those by over 65,000 other recording artists with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD, listing the values for over a million records.
