Not the “Alt” version, and not done with a mic pointed at an old record player. Roland Janes on that guitar, Jerry Lee Lewis on piano, Marvin Peppers on bass, and Jimmy Van Eaton on “skins”… 🙂 http://www.ModCollectibles.com
Marvin Peppers doing the rebel yell! Fantastic song.
I had the great fortune to be mentored by Roland Janes at Sonic Recording when I was 16-18 years old. I just knew him as Roland and had no idea of his background with Sun Records and Jerry Lee Lewis. Reconnected with him about a year before he passed away. What a legend.
A great song! The late Jim Wunderle and the Symptons from Springfield, MO covered this song and "Red Hot" in their live performances. Fantastic guitar work from Lou Whitney and Donnie Thompson. Billy Lee Riley should have been a star.
Ray Harryhausen ladies and gentlemen.
Sun Records would have been nothing if it weren't for Roland Janes, Jerry Lee Lewis, & Billy Lee Riley. 🎸
If you don't remove this video you will have to pay me $ 800000

Well, the news of the saucer been a-flyin' aroundI'm the only one that seen it on the groundFirst thing I seen when I saw it landCats jumped out and they formed a band. [Chorus]: Flyin' saucer rock and roll, flyin' saucer rock and rollI couldn't understand the things they saidBut that crazy beat just a stopped me dead Well the little green men, they were real hep-cats Rockin' and a-rollin' to the crazy flats They brought out a sax and they started to blow They brought out the drums and they started to roll. [Chorus]Well, I come out a-hidin' and I started to rockLittle green men tought me how to do the bopThey were three foot high, hit a few barsStarted rock and roll all the way from mars. [Chorus]
The scream reminds me of The Cramps' Bryan Gregory in "The Way I Walk". Riley was born 5 October 1933 in Pocohontas, Arkansas. Aged three, his family moved on to a plantation. He grew up playing with the children of black sharecroppers and claims he learned to play the harmonica when he was six. He left school to work in the fields with his parents when he was eight. These experiences shaped Riley's feelings for the blues. When he was 15, he joined the US Army, serving for four years. Discharged, he formed a band and began working in a shoe factory. Married in 1954, he and his wife moved to Memphis, Tennessee, and opened a restaurant, but it was closed after a gunfight. Riley then held a variety of jobs until on Christmas morning, 1955, he picked up two hitchhikers, one of whom turned out to be Jack Clement, an aspiring music producer. Clement invited Riley to record at his Memphis studio and, in March 1956, Sam Phillips, the visionary producer behind Sun Records, heard it and signed Riley as an artist and Clement as a producer. Riley died 2 August 2009….
Well what a track unbelievable true R & R.
yeah, Jerry Lee!

Billy lee was pipped at the post by Elvis both had great singles to push Elvis got the shout, love Billy lees vocals.
The guitarist here is Roland Janes, who accompanied Jerry Lee Lewis on most of his Sun hits. Roland Janes was to Jerry Lee, what Scotty Moore was to Elvis.
