Suzie Q

A hypnotic cowbell sets the mood for Dale Hawkins's bluesy strutting rockabilly ode to "Suzie Q," fired by a wild solo by teenaged guitarist James Burton, soon to become one of the top Hollywood rock & roll session musicians. About 10 years later, Creedence Clearwater Revival's version would become their first big hit. "You can really hear that we were havin' a good time cuttin' that record," Hawkins said. "Man, me and the vocal group were actually doin' steps during the guitar breaks!"
