We start off with the Sonny (Joe) West demo of this tune, then the Atlantic Records first version of "Oh Boy" by one of it's composers (West, Tilghman, Petty), Sonny West from 1957 recorded at the Norm Petty Studio.

Buddy Holly, the Picks and the Crickets recorded "Oh Boy" later that year at Norman Petty Studios for the "Chirping Crickets" album. It was released as a single and on the flip side was "Not Fade Away". "Oh Boy" hit the top ten in 1958.
