Peter Wolf – Oo-Ee-Diddley-Bop! (1984)

Peter Wolf is an American Rhythm and Blues, Soul and Rock and Roll musician, best known as the lead vocalist for the J. Geils Band from 1967 to 1983;and for a successful musical solo career to date with writing partner Will Jennings.

After Peter Wolf ditched the J. Geils Band in 1983 because co-leader Seth Justman turned down a batch of new songs Wolf had written with Don Covay and Michael Jonzun, he made the most of it and released the great Lights Out album.

The album was produced by Michael Jonzun of the Jonzun Crew and featured Adrian Belew. The eponymous single became a hit single the same year, peaking at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The first single released from the album would be “Oo-Ee-Diddley-Bop!”, produced and arranged by Peter Wolf and Michael Jonzun, remixed by Arthur Baker and edited by The Latin Rascals.

The follow up singles “Lights Out” and “I Need You Tonight” both received Francois Kevorkian remixes so watch out for those to be posted soon.
