  • I'm Shakin by Little Willie John query

    So I'm toying with the idea of shelling out for an original copy of this. But it would seem there are two versions knocking about. They are pretty similar but one features an open close hi hat swing rhythm in the verses and slightly different feel to the beat in the chorus. I'm after a copy of this version but it would seem that this is not the version released on the original King 45.

    This one appears to be the original version.



    And this is the version I'm after. Does anybody know if it was ever released on vinyl?



    Thanks!!
    Cheese Please Louise!!!

    You are after this issue: http://www.45cat.com/record/455823

    Came out 3 years after the first one
    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

      My copy has the hi-hats but I cant find it at the moment to check what's on the flip, but I've a feeling I have this one (King 5823)

            The version you're after was also reissued on 7" by Kent - copies available on eBay (and I'm sure elsewhere) for about £7

              I've had this in m saved searches for a good couple of years now and I can't understand why such a seemingly common 45 still consistently goes for a fair sum of money. I'd say on average a copy a day pops up in my inbox yet they all seem to go for $50+ ???? I'm biding my time for that $10 bin to finally show up.

              I'd prefer the non drum roll version but at this point I'd take either.

                I passed up a copy for £22 at the Luton fair a good few years ago. It still smarts.
