DOROTHY BERRY - YOU'RE DRIVING ME CRAZY
It doesn't matter by whom or when they were cut; I will add any record that sounds like this to my collection or want list without question!
Dorothy Berry was married to Richard Berry (writer of "Louie Louie" and "Have Love will Travel") and it is believed that she was the inspiration behind the "fine little girl, she waits for me" line in "Louie". Richard also sold off the rights to three songs (including "Louie") to raise $750 to marry Dorothy.
Dorothy went on to become one of Ray Charles' Raeletts for many years until she was tired of the road.
