Duane Eddy: Shazam!


This was written by Eddy and producer Lee Hazlewood. It followed his earlier hits including Rebel Rouser and Forty Miles of Bad Road, but was a bit of a flop in the US, making it only to No 45. It did much better in Britain with a peak of No 4. This is the record:

I am not sure if this is live or not, but it has audience noise.

The Shadows recorded it in 1963 as the B-side of Geronimo, which reached No 10 in Britain. As far as I can see they dropped the exclamation mark.

Here is a live performance which I assume is from 2016.
