Jerry Lee Lewis has had a lot of ups and downs during his career but this single and its parent album, THE SESSION, were a definite up.
I always flip this single over. “Drinking Wine Spo-Dee O’Dee” was was a excellent country cover of the old 1949 rhythm & blues hit by Stick McGhee.
The B side was Jerry Lee Lewis at his rocking best. He combined a number of classic rock ‘n’ roll songs into an explosive medley.
The single would peak at number 41 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart and while his albums have continued to sell well, this was the last of his 18 pop charting singles.
