Aired on Shindig! 4/28/65. Donna Loren, Bobby Sherman, The Wellingtons, Darlene Love and The Blossoms singing “Tutti Frutti” as part of an opening medley. This 1955 song, co-written and originally recorded by Little Richard, became his first major hit record. With its opening cry of “A-wop-bop-a-loo-mop-a-wop-bam-boom!” (a verbal imitation of a drum pattern that Little Richard had heard) and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also a model for rock and roll itself.
