Arnie Treffers, beter bekend als Long Tall Ernie, behaalde met de band The Shakers eind jaren zeventig zijn grootste successen met nummers als Do You Remember en Golden Years Of Rock 'n Roll, die potpourri's van rock-'n-rollstukken waren.

Al in 1964 heeft hij als Big Ernie een single "Charlie Brown" opgenomen en in 1965 twee nummers van een ep. Daarna heeft Arnie nog singles opgenomen onder de volgende namen: C.S. '65; Limited '65; Spijkerkwartet (1970-1973); Palace (1971); Arnhem (1972-1973); Pontiacs (1973); Arnie (1974); Block (1982).

In 1971 speelde de groep Moan in het voorprogramma van Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers met dezelfde bezetting. In 1973 had Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers zoveel succes, dat Moan opgeheven werd. Met Moan had Arnie overigens wel zijn eerste Top 40-hit: Health of freedom kwam in 1971 tot nummer 27. Met Long Tall Ernie & The Shakers had hij 10 hits, waaronder de nummer 1-hit Do you remember in 1977. Dit nummer kwam in Duitsland ook nog tot een 20e plaats.

Songtekst

Golden years of rock'n roll
Every Saturday we had a ball
Dancin' and swaying
While the bands were playing

It's the golden years of rock'n roll
Petticoats were on
To let our wheels run
Saturdaynights were a whole lot of fun

Had a good time
Milkshakes and wine
The jukebox playin' only needed a dime

It's the golden years of rock'n roll
Every Saturday we had a ball
Dancin' and swaying
While the bands were playing

It's the golden years of rock'n roll
Golden years of rock'n roll

Sherry
Sherry, baby
Sherry
Sherry, baby

Sherry, baby (Sherry, baby)
Sherry, can you come out

Matty told Hatty
About a thing she saw
Had two big horns
And a Wooly Jaw

Wooly Bully, Wooly Bully
That is right
Wooly Bully, Wooly Bully

Yeah, hey, hey, yeah
Yeah, hey, hey, yeah

Never been late
For my latest date
In my daddy's car we didn't have to wait

We kissed in the back
And there was Wolfman Jack
Movin' and groovin' to the latest track

It's the golden years of rock'n roll
Every Saturday we had a ball
Dancin' and swaying
While the bands were playing

It's the golden years of rock'n roll
Golden years of rock'n roll

Buona sera, signorita, buona sera
It is time to say goodnight to Napoli
Though it's hard for us to whisper buona sera
With that old moon above the Mediterranean sea

In the meantime let me tell you that I love you
Buona sera, signorina, kiss me good

Slippin' and slidin'
Peepin' and a-hiddin'
Been told a long time ago

Slippin' and slidin'
Peepin' and a-hiddin'
Been told a long time ago

I've been told, baby
You've been told
I won't be your fool no more

Golden years of rock'n roll
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah

Well, you can rock it you can roll it
You can stop and you can stroll it at the hop (Hop, hop, hop)
When the record starts spinnin'
You calypso when you chicken at the hop (Hop, hop, hop)
Do the dance sensation that is sweepin' the nation at the hop (Hop, hop, hop)

Come, come, come, let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Oh, let's go to the hop
Well, let's go to the hop

Let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop (Oh, baby)
Let's go to the hop
