Exactement un an après la dernère intervention, je visite ce site avec plaisir.
Le sujet sur la demo Be Bop A Lula est très intéressant.
Une lettre de Ken Nelson repoduite de l'excellent livre "The Story behind his songs" de Thierry Liesenfeld.
Je cite Nelson : "When Bill Davis, a disc jockey in Norfolk, Virginia, send me a acetate of a singer named Eugene Vincent Craddock, I was immediatly impressed not only by his voice, his unique style, but also by the song "Be Bop A Lula".
Capitol Records, at the time, had no R'n'R artists and I feld that R'n'R was to become a prominent part of music industy. I phoned to Davis and said, "If you can get Gene and the band to Nashville, I'll record them on May 4 th, that was in 1956, I began to worry that maybe I had made a hasty decision because all I had heard was one song.
Cette acetate ne comportait, semble-t-il, que Be Bop A Lula.
