Sun Records: Ubangi Stomp

Written by Charles Underwood, Warren Smith’s 1956 treatment of the “Ubangi Stomp” is a rockabilly standard. Unlike the two previous Sun recordings we’ve featured this week that had great chart success, “Ubangi Stomp” failed to chart.

The song was popular tune for rockabilly artists to record and it has been covered by The Stray Cats and Jerry Lee Lewis, as well as being recorded by a host of others that included John Prine, Alice Cooper, and The Trashmen.
