Oh, My Linda

I suppose Linda is a relatively famous name. I have quickly come up with Linda Blair, Linda Lovelace, Lynda Carter, Linda McCartney and Linda Thompson. As a name it is reasonably well represented in song, so today I found four tracks representing a different Linda for your aural pleasure.
Lets start with a rather obscure B-Side from The Emperors on the Spectra Sound Records 'Grab This And Dance !' compilation. Following on is Fred Hughes 'Shout Mama Linda' a B-Side from 1965 on Chicago's Vee-Jay Records. Next are The Satellites who originally released this track in 1959 on ABC-Paramount. Last but not least is Jimmy Ty a 1962 release on Bella Records.

The Emperors - Laughin' Linda (From the comp. 'Grab This And Dance !')

Fred Hughes - Shout Mama Linda (From the comp. Too Much Goin' On)

The Satellites - Linda Jean (From the comp.Chicken Rock Vol 2)

Jimmy Ty - Twistin' Linda (From the comp. Savage Kick Vol 9)
