One of the original Sun Records rockabilly artists recording alongside Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison went on to become one of the most distinctive singers in popular music. Wearing trademark sunglasses, black leather jacket, and slicked back black pompadour, and with a twangy guitar and quavering belcanto tenor, Orbison scored a number of hits.
Orbison acquired the song "Ooby Dooby," from Wade Moore and Dick Penner, who had written it in fifteen minutes on the flat roof of a fraternity house at North Texas State. Orbison's version of "Ooby Dooby" from the 1956 Petty sessions was quickly released on Jean Oliver and Weldon Roger's Je-Wel Records.
Although Sam Phillips of Sun Records had previously rejected Orbison (who had contacted Sun Records at the urging of Johnny Cash), Cecil "Pop" Holifield played the Je-Wel record over the phone to Phillips who then heard the uniqueness in Orbison's voice and asked for a copy.
Sensing that "Ooby Dooby" might break like "Blue Suede Shoes", Phillips moved quickly and had Orbison and the Teen Kings re-record the song at Sun Records in late March or early April 1956. "Ooby Dooby" eventually reached number 59 on Billboard's Hot 100
