Toronto 1954/The Crew Cuts

the-crew-cuts-buckle-down-winsocki-mercuryThe Crew Cuts from Toronto scored the very FIRST number 1 Rock n’ Roll single with their cover of the Chords song Sh-Boom in September 1954.

When the Crew Cuts toured England in 1956 a young Paul McCartney was in the audience and waited backstage for an autograph!

I prefer this version from Dennis Potter’s “Lipstick on Your Collar” with a young Ewan McGregor and Louise Germaine miming the song.

    There is a brief article from the Encyclopedia of Music
    in Canada about the Crew Cuts.
