"The Premiers"

'Jolene' ('58)

Bbbbbbrrummm! Not a big fan of white doo-wop, but I can make an exception now and then! The Premiers were from Connecticut and also recorded as Roger & The Travellers / and also The Frontiers - this one was released on the Alert label. Dolly Parton would later cover this song in the 70's, minus the car sounds and everything else. More info on the group can be found on whitedoowopcollector.


  1. This is not the same "Jolene" that Dolly Parton wrote and recorded!

  2. hahaha. Well done, you get the prize.
