: Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On –

Ozark Jubilee Boys perform “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” live in this country tinged version of Jerry Lee Lewis’s rhythm & hit. Witness in the making as this young band goes rock & roll.


According to Wikipedia –
The origins of the song are disputed, but the writing is co-credited to Native American (Crow) / African American Kentuckian singer/songwriter Dave “Curlee” Williams, and white pianist, bandleader and songwriter James Faye “Roy” Hall (May 7, 1922 – March 2, 1984).

Hall made the first recording of the song in September, for Decca , and maintained that he had written it and had secured the legal copyright as co-writer under the pseudonym of “Sunny David”. All recordings of the song list the composers as Sunny David and Dave Williams.

However, a Decca sample copy of Hall’s recording lists Dave Williams as the sole writer. The songwriting credit has always appeared as David-Williams on all recordings of the song subsequently.

Hall was also a Nashville club owner, who later claimed to have employed young player Jerry Lee Lewis at some point around 1954.
