Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs - Little Red Riding Hood
Okay, great record, but getting even later for our '50s early '60s pre Brit-Invasion era (went to #2 in July 1966...) 

Here's THE JARMELS:

"Get Rhythm" by Johnny Cash, circa about '57 or so. 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Roug4qG7qCY

Don't know if he'd be in that 'early rock' era, as he was country.  But, I'd place him there.  Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Johnny, all those guys had songs that defined genres.  Good stuff.


I believe all three guys you mentioned started at Sun Records.  Nice lineup they had.

They had a great lineup.  Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, BB King, and Roy Orbison, I believe, were some of the bigger stars that worked with Sun at some point.  Good label.

Of course it was JIMMIE RODGERS who had the charting hit with this one, this is just a cover of a then recent hit, a practice still common, but perhaps even more so then.

It seemed VERY common back then.  Look at Tutti Frutti by Little Richard for example.  He had his R&B hit with that, and Pat Boone did a version, Jerry Lee Lewis had one, Elvis I think had one, etc.

Great BUDDY choice! 
Here's a genuine hit of RICK's that nobody covered significantly:

And another, not a hit or a single, but a cut from RICK's masterpiece Ricky Sings Again :
