Information on this song is hard to come by. According to Wikipedia, it was recorded in Fort Worth in 1959, and according to All Music Guide, it was written by Summers' band-mate Eddie Wayne Hill, who died in a car crash in 1962. So far as I know, it has only been available on CD once, on an overseas various artists compilation called Born Bad Volume 7, long out of print--despite its awesomeness, it isn't on any of Gene Summers' best-of compilations.

I think it deserves wider exposure, so I threw together this quickie slide show video.

Seems like it's ripe for inclusion on a cool film noir soundtrack.
