Lawdy Miss Clawdy by Lloyd Price

The clock radio wakes me up every morning and it’s tuned to Radio 2 and Chris Evans. This morning somebody requested Lawdy Miss Clawdy, it must be about 20 years or more since I’d heard it, but I knew something wasn’t right.

It was the Elvis version which was played. Now I have nothing against Elvis and although I was never a big fan I quite liked his early stuff. Anyway I just had to find out who had sung the version of Miss Clawdy which I remembered, and here it is, from 1952, which is a good wee while before I was born. I have siblings who are much older than me though so I heard a lot of music which most people my age wouldn’t have. I really enjoyed hearing Lloyd’s version again.
It’s a pity that there doesn’t seem to be any film of him performing it.

  1. Now I feel really old! And so early in the morning! I was born in 1952, a ‘good wee while’ before you were born! Oh, well, one of the books I’m currently reading is Just Kids by Patti Smith, the poet / singer / writer. She’s six years older than I am, so, I guess, there’s always someone older!
