Nellie Lutcher

Any compilation will do, although if you want to hear the definitive fast-‘n’-frantic version of ‘Hurry on Down’ (rather than the hit-version they include on every compilation), you’ll have to buy the 4-CD Bear Family box-set called ‘Nellie Lutcher And Her Rhythm’. Whatever you buy, you’ll get lots of very dated novelty music, but it’s worth it to hear Lutcher’s bizarre and ecstatic vocals, replete with mousy squeaks and a vibrato worthy of a chain-saw.
