Song ID: Deviny James – “Blue, Blue Denim” (1959)


Deviny James was an alias for Jim Pewter, who became better known by his given name as a DJ on KMET-LA and later Armed Forces Radio. “Blue, Blue Denim” – a title that likely aided in endearing him to Gene Vincent, with whom he later collaborated – came out on the Beta label as the flipside to “Little Girl” in 1959. Check out the scorching guitar solo by session ace Larry Hulley and the disembodied backup voices on loan from the house on haunted hill. Thanks to Jerry Richards for this one.
