"Lotta Lovin" is one of my favorite Gene Vincent records, and it was written by Bernice Bedwell.

Here's what her sister wrote after her passing:

"Bernice naively got into a contractual agreement with this man who took all her earnings and royalties, both from publishing her music, and her writing royalties. All she received was the credit and notoriety. One of Bernice’s songs was entitled “Lotta Lovin” and was played for Gene Vincent over the phone. This came about in late ’56. Bernice met Gene in early 1957 and became good friends with him. Not only did Gene record “Lotta Lovin” but went on to record a couple of other pieces she had written. One was called “Lonesome Boy;” the other, which I thought was an all time classic, and my favorite was “In My Dreams.”"
