Danny & Dusty: The Lost Weekend

Bruce Pollock, Wilson Library Bulletin, November 1985

WHILE 'JO-ANN', recorded by the Playmates in 1958, still stands as my all-time favorite rock and roll single, a girl and a song (and a girlsong) so formidable that I once devoted an entire chapter in a book to it, my musical sensibility cannot be fully appreciated unless the appropriate reverent nod be given also to 'The Hungry Dogs of New Mexico', as recorded on an album by Happy & Artie Traum, circa 1968.
