My Little Sue

My Little Sue Terry Lee & The Poor Boys... My Little Sue (1959, SOMA 1116X45 .mp3 audio 02:25) bw Driftin' (1959, SOMA 1116X45 .mp3 audio 01:56). "...Formed in 1955, Terry Lee & The Poor Boys was North Dakota’s first rock and roll band. Four years later, in August 1959, the Poor Boys, led by lead singer/rhythm guitarist Bob Becker, traveled to the Kay Bank studio in Minneapolis to record 'My Little Sue,' a Gene Vincent/Buddy Holly-influenced rockabilly disc released on Soma. 'My Little Sue' was a KXGO 'Pick Hit of the Week' and, with only 500 pressings, has since become one of the most highly sought-after rockabilly 45s in the world." - Fargo Rocks, The Movie
