RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1956

Gene Vincent recorded “Be-Bop-A-Lula” at Owen Bradley‘s
studio in Nashville, Tennessee. It was released in June 1956 
and immediately sold well. The song was successful on three
American singles charts: it peaked at #7 on the Billboard pop
music chart, #8 on the R&B chart, and also made the top ten
on the C&W Best Seller chart peaking at #5. In April 1957,
Capitol Records announced that over 2 million copies had
