Wham

This tune was Lonnie Mack’s 2nd top-40 hit in 1963, although it did not climb as high as his first, “Memphis”.

The Ventures included this in volume three of their 2006 “60s Rock Instrumental Collection” series.

In Memoriam: Lonnie Mack & Memphis

As a long-time student of guitar who believes in giving full credit to those who shaped our instrument, I had to pay tribute to Lonnie Mack. This version of “Memphis” is based on his hit from 1963. The Ventures also recorded a version based on Lonnie Mack’s approach on their 1967 album, “Golden Greats”.
