Written and recorded by Berry, “Carol” was released as single in 1958. The song peaked at the 18th spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the ninth spot on the R&B charts.
In 1964, the Rolling Stones offered up their own cover of the tune. The Beatles covered it during a live show the year prior, and the recording from that show was released in 1994.
But our favorite cover of “Carol” has to be the one performed by the Charlie Daniels Band and Ted Nugent during the 1980 Volunteer Jam. It was one high-energy performance that left the crowd on the edge of their seats!
