Dave Burgess on Tops

Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On

Dave Burgess is probably famous for being one of The Champs. But he also recorded under his own name for Okeh (53-54), Tampa (55) , Tops (56-57) and Gene Autry's Challenge (first as Dave Dupree, 57-61).

Tops Records a budget record label based in Los Angeles, California, and owned by Precision Radiation Instruments recorded cover versions of the hits of the day, four of them for the price of two.

Dave recorded about twenty covers for Tops. None seems to have been re-issued anywhere. "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On " was also issued on the Tops album Music for A Mad Ball (Tops L1610), soundtrack of the Columbia Picture - "Operation Mad Ball".
