I seem to remember that this was one of several songs by black artists that Pat Boone covered. I think another was "Aint That a Shame" by Fats Domino. Now we think of this as the hit song of the era, but a lot of white kids thought it was a Pat Boone song. Didn't he cover another Little Richard song?

Yes he did. Long Tall Sally. For those interested, there's an interesting article on the whole subject of cover records in Bits & Pieces.
