However, his fifteen minutes of pop-chart fame came in when his "Baby Sittin' Boogie", a novelty tune originally written as "Baby Sitter Boogie" made the top ten. Unfortunately, no commercially successful follow-up was achieved and Clifford has been relegated to "one-hit wonder" in spite of his songwriting and performing abilities.
This pigeon-holing may explain why it has taken 25 years of CD reissue activity before a compilation of Clifford's work has come to market. Though not from one of the more well-respected reissue houses Rhino, Ace, Varese, Bear Familythis track collection does serve the purpose in the interim. The tracks included here cover his earliest recordings from the late 50's on through the later 60's and is anchored by his hit "Baby Sittin' Boogie" and other Columbia label-era output.
The packaging claims this has been "remastered" but most likely this refers merely to the fact that this is now in digital format.
While the sound quality varies from fair to fairly good, it does not appear that these tracks were taken from original masters out of the vaults as no licensing credits are given. Tracks appear in stereo with the remainder in mono of mostly listenable audio with the exception of a noisy track The insert includes a few pics plus a skeletal history of Clifford's recording career up to about While not top-of-the-line, this piece does fill the void for the collector looking for more from Clifford than just his hit "Baby Sittin' Boogie" ubiquitously available on compilation CD's.
Buzz Clifford's hit "Baby Sittin' Boogie" was a hit in That made me four years old when my mother bought the 45 single because the baby sounds on the album reminded her of sounds I made as an infant and she got such a kick out of the song. I grew up with that 45 single and still have it in my possession.
Growing up as an only child my best friend was my record player. My favorite song from then to now is "Driftwood" which is on the flip side. I always wondered why such a talented singer like Buzz never achieved the celebrity he should have. I was thrilled to discover a compilation of his work on CD and even more thrilled to discover the full scope of his talent.
How the world missed out on this guy is a wonder to me. Great for the one song Baby sittin' Boogie. The other songs are all flip sides. One person found this helpful. Haley's version was released in August and reached number seven on the Billboard singles chart, spending a total of twenty-seven weeks in the Top Both recordings are considered classics.
Turner concludes that he "can look at you tell you ain't no child no more, while Haley can tell "you don't love me no more". Although musical revisionists and American media tried to paint Turner as a victim of the music industry due to Haley's covering of the song, in fact Haley's success helped Turner immensely although Turner was a well-established performer long before "Shake, Rattle and Roll".
Listeners who heard Haley's version sought out Turner's. The two men became close friends, and performed on tour together in Australia in Inat a time when Turner's career was at a low ebb, Haley arranged for his Comets to back the elder musician for a series of recordings in Mexico, although Rattle And Roll - Buzz Clifford - Baby Sittin With Buzz Clifford (Vinyl Haley and Turner did not record a duet version of "Shake, Rattle and Roll", Rattle And Roll - Buzz Clifford - Baby Sittin With Buzz Clifford (Vinyl.
Haley acknowledged Turner's version in later years by incorporating more of the original lyrics into his live performances, including adding the verse with the lines "I've been over the hill and I've been way down underneath" which was omitted from Haley's original recording, when he recorded the song for Stuart Colman 's BBC Radio program in October Both Turner's and Haley's versions contain the double entendre "I'm like a one-eyed cat peepin' in a seafood store".
LP Swenson's biography of Bill Haley, Father of Rock and Roll suggests Haley kept the line in because he was himself blind in one eye.
In Turner's version, the girl is ordered to "get out of that bed"; Haley changes it "get out in that kitchen", nonetheless, in his version she is directed to "roll my breakfast cause I'm a hungry man". In other words, she has spent the night with the singer in both versions. When Joe Turner performed the song in the film Rock 'n' Roll Revuehe chose to sing the Bill Haley version of the opening verse.
Both versions sold over one million copies, making "Shake, Rattle and Roll" the first giant rock 'n' roll hit. Elvis Presley recorded the song  twice in a studio setting: a demo recorded at radio station KDAV in Lubbock, Texas in January  while under contract with Sun Records this recording was not released until the s and as a single for RCA Victoralthough it was not a major hit.
Both versions by Elvis mixed Haley's and Turner's lyrics with a faster-paced version of Haley's arrangement. Although the commercially released version used Turner's "bed" version of the opening verse, alternate takes released by RCA in the s indicate Presley originally intended to begin the song with Haley's "kitchen" verse. Fontana performed the song in medley with the similar " Flip, Flop and Fly " on the January 28, broadcast of the Dorsey Brothers Stage Show Haley's "kitchen" opening verse was sung.
