Grab this

The song that was the soundtrack for the story about last words came from this LP:

It was one of the first LP’s with rare 50’s rock’roll 45’s that I bought. The record is supposedly made in Spain, but you don’t need to be Einstein to see that this is a bootleg and that it can have been made anywhere. Most of the 16 songs on this LP have shown up on several other legal and illegal compilations, but I still think that this is one of the best LP’s of it’s kind. After I recorded the Rod Willis song, I played the whole LP and a week later it is still next to the record player, where I keep all the records that I am listening to.
There are so many mistakes in the spelling of the names and the titles that it makes me wonder what it means. Did the makers do this on purpose, to make it seem as if the LP indeed was made in Spain? Or was the LP really made in Spain? Or was the record made by a dyslectic person? Or is this meant as humour?
Here is another great desperate rock’n’roll classic from this LP, ”Please give me something” by Bill Allen. This song has been covered by many bands with far better musicians than Bill Allen had, but the original cannot be topped.
