Dorsey Gets “Bertha Lou”

“Bertha Lou ”

Dorsey Burnette : 58 Votes

Clint Miller : 32 Votes

Both Dorsey and Clint rocked the hell outta “Bertha Lou”, but the Prowlers have chosen Dorsey’s original version of the song as their favorite!

This week’s Friday Night Cat Fight focuses on one of the most popular song themes, TRAIN SONGS! This show is only part one of a multi-part series on TRAIN SONGS and features great tunes from Johnny Cash, The Cardinals, Tom Waits, Rufus Thomas, Al Green and many more.

I also trace the history of the rock n’ roll classic, “The Train Kept A-Rollin’,” which was written by and originally recorded by Tiny Bradshaw in 1951. Tiny’s up against some of the greatest guitar solos in history as The Johnny Burnette Rock n’ Roll Trio (guitar: Paul Burlison), The Yardbirds (guitar: Jeff Beck) and Aerosmith (guitar: Joe Perry) all have a crack at it.
