A Daddy Cool Original Doo-Wop Ditty

In 1957, songwriters Bob Crewe and Frank Slay penned a doo-wop ditty by the name of “Daddy Cool”. The Rays released the “Daddy Cool” original version that same year. Then in 1971, two Australian bands covered the song – Drummond (Adelaide band Allison Gros who later became Mississippi) and Daddy Cool from Melbourne. This post focuses on Daddy Cool’s version. Please note: Boney M’s 1976 hit of the same name is a completely different song. We don’t discuss it here.
