Recorded by Cliff Richard and the Drifters (the UK band that would evolve into The Shadows). It was released as Richard’s debut single on 29 August 1958 and became his first hit record. It is credited with being one of the first authentic rock and roll songs produced outside the United States. The song was written by Ian Samwell.
John Lennon once claimed that “before Cliff and the Shadows, there had been nothing worth listening to in British music.”
