Everybody JERK the Ronnie and the Pomona Casuals' song he wrote in 1964click to listen

Everybody Jerk the Ronnie and the Pomona Casuals' song he wrote, In 1964, Ronnie & the Casuals recorded an album, produced by Billy Cardenas, called "Everybody Jerk" for Bob Keane's Donna Record label, a subsidiary of his DelFi Records. (DelFi had previously released recordings by Chicano artists Ritchie Valens, Chan Romero, and The Romancers.) The Jerk was an extremely popular dance in '64, hence the title and style of the music on the album. "Everybody Jerk" was very popular, particularly on the east side of Los Angeles, and featured the great single "I Wanna Do the Jerk."
When Cardenas felt they were ready, he took them to Bob Keane at DelFi Records. Bob liked what he heard and scheduled the sessions for the recording of what became the "Everybody Jerk" album. Amazingly, when Ronnie & the Casuals recorded the album they were between the ages of 14 and 17. Ronnie recalls doing the music tracks for side one in a single night. It took a few weeks to complete the tracks for side two and the vocals. According to Ronnie, "I Wanna Do the Jerk" was written by Arthur Lee of the legendary L.A. psychedelic band, Love. Ronnie and one of the other members of Love assisted with the writing of the song, which was not credited on the album.
