 Locust St.
Yet even while Willis wrote the song especially for Brown, there isn't that much difference between the two takes--Page's version swings far more than you'd imagine, with a piano riff straight out of New Orleans R&B, while Brown's, though she offers a richer vocal (in my opinion), is fairly stately.
In 1954, there were two distinctive takes--one by LaVern Baker, in a rich, lavish pop production with Ink Spot-like backing vocals and even a 4-bar saxophone solo.

Most historians now agree that the CIA-sponsored military coup in 1954 was the poison arrow that pierced the heart of Guatemala's young democracy.
A top secret memo dated June 1, 1954, lists proposals for stirring foreign and domestic outrage at the Arbenz government with such tactics as "simulated Guatemalan aggression against Honduras," faked kidnappings of prominent Guatemalan citizens and the desecration of Guatemalan churches with pro-communist slogans.
To frighten government officials and police, the CIA and its agents sent them death notices, made anonymous phone calls ("preferably between 2 and 5 a.m."), spread rumors about their personal and professional lives, and mailed threatening symbols to their homes, such as a coffin or a hangman's noose.

 President's Park (White House) - 1954-Present National Christmas Trees (U.S. National Park Service)
In 1954 a group of Washington businessmen and interested citizens organized to oversee the production of the Christmas Pageant of Peace, a celebration conceived by the Washington Board of Trade [Washington Post, December 25, 1954] and the Washington Citizen's Committee.
The Pageant was meant as a "voluntary expression of American citizens of every creed and color to dramatize the Christmas message of 'Peace on earth, good will toward men.'" To that end, in its early decades the Pageant included participation by foreign embassies.
Every year from 1954 through 1972 (when a living tree was planted on the Ellipse), a new cut tree was brought to Washington from a different state and placed on the Ellipse for the duration of the Pageant (through January 1).

 Locust St.
It had happened just in time: the blues musicians who Phillips had been recording since 1950 were getting difficult to sign--with growing demand for R&B records from teenagers, inculcated into the music by DJs like Alan Freed, suddenly the obscure and penny-ante business of taping blues artists was becoming competitive and lucrative.
By 1954, Phillips had been in legal brawls with larger labels, had watched his most established artists (like Junior Parker, who broke his Sun contract to sign with Duke) fly away and realized that, lacking the budget of an Atlantic or Chess, he was going to be consigned to the minor leagues.
This was odd, screeching, simply weird music that no one wanted to hear--the Floyd singles could have been slipped in among the host of scratchy 1920s sides that Harry Smith would collect the following year on his American Folk Music anthology, and none would have been the wiser.
