Lucille, B.B. King’s guitar, sounds mighty fine on this take on the dance craze inspiring Hully Gully. It was 1962 when Hully Gully Twist was released and my guess is that the twist was just tacked onto the title in order to broaden the potential audience. I don’t think B.B. King’s version has any direct relation to the previously released Bill Doggett or Wayne Worley records of the same name. The songwriting credit goes to King along with Joe Josea. In fact, there was no such person. Josea was a pseudonym Joe Bihari used in order to receive half the publishing royalties. Joe was one of the Bihari brothers, a family of independent music industry pioneers who founded Modern Records and then Meteor, Flair, RPM, Kent and more.
