Authentic original 1959 press from this single 45 artist. A Joe Rene New York production guiding a strong latin-flavoured rockabilly session with a lively male-vocal-group backing up with the "Cheater" chorus. A muscular mover, dripping in macho attitude as threats are made to the guy who's the "Cheater"

Like productions later in Joe Rene's career, this one o=is rippling with strong bass guitar pulses, full-on backing rhythms, full male group assistance and a wicked guitar solo. Bobby De Soto vocal stutters with curled lip defiance. A strong rocker with quite a reputation.

Teen fans will like the flipside as Bobby leaves the Elvis persona behind morphing into a cross between Buddy Holly and an Everly Brother.. a floating production with added sound effects towards the ending.

Leaving you fully understanding of the following this 45 commands..
