Such Innocent Times...



Shirley & Lee are best remembered for their 1956 hit, the timeless classic "Let The Good Times Roll". Strangely enough for a vocal duo they almost never sang in harmony, let alone together at all with their contrasting male-female duet style apparently being a big influence on early ska and reggae productions from Jamaica. It was also a staple of teenage dance parties upon its release in '56 and somehow managed to receive a radio ban due to its suggestive lyrics. Such innocent times.
