Album Review

Bonnie Lou's three major country and pop hits, "Seven Lonely Days," "Tennessee Wig Walk" and "Daddy-O," are collected on this superbly packaged CD with 23 of her other King recordings from the 1950s, including a couple of alternate takes. Bonnie Lou's music began as pop-oriented country with double-tracked vocals and later incorporated more and more R&B and rock & roll flourishes, until by the late '50s she was recording teen novelties such as "Little Miss Bobby Sox" and "Teenage Wedding." "La Dee Dah" is a duet with labelmate Rusty York, while "Two Step, Side Step" is an attempt at repeating the "Tennessee Wig Walk" formula. Featuring extensive liner notes and interesting photos, Doin' the Tennessee Wig Walk is an excellent anthology of an artist whose genre-straddling recordings will appeal to '50s country, rock, and pop music lovers.
