“ … Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll …”
“Shake, Rattle and Roll”
~ written in 1954 by Jesse Stone (1901-1999) under his assumed songwriting name Charles E. Calhoun
~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
Strolling through Belvidere, New Jersey on a rare warm February afternoon, I came across this cool sign for Dee’s Doos Hair Salon. Elvis Presley sang about “Shake, Rattle and Roll,” but at Dee’s I believe the slogan would be “Cut, Color and Roll!”
Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.
