September 25, 2014 Record of the Day

Otis Blackwell wrote some of the greatest hits of the early Rock N Roll era including “Great Balls of Fire” for Jerry Lee Lewis and “Don’t Be Cruel” and “All Shook Up” for Elvis Presley. Blackwell’s first song to become a classic came in 1955 with “Fever” by Little Willie John and later a bigger smash for Peggy Lee. He was also a piano player and recorded many songs himself. In 1956 Davis records released the album “Singin’ the Blues” by Otis Blackwell.
