DOGGIN' AROUND

Latest update on 24/07/2009

Artist: Jackie Wilson
Author: Lena Agree
Label: Brunswick
Year: 1960

B-side of Night. Lena Agree was an aunt of Jackie's manager Nat Tarnopol. Credits really should have gone to Alonzo Tucker (ex The Royals), who cowrote more Jackie Wilson hits (Baby Workout). Tucker sang Doggin' Around years before Jackie first recorded it.

Covers:

1965:

Jean Knight

1973:

Michael Jackson

1983:

Klique [as Stop Doggin' Me Around; the voice of Howard Huntsberry sounds exactly like Jackie Wilson's]

Not to be confused with the jazz standard Doggin' Around, cut in the thirties by Count Basie and in the sixties by Zoot Sims.
