Hello, it's great to be back from vacation. I'd like to say that I got a lot of rest and relaxation but we ran around more last week than in any usual week. Our destination (I'll mention no names and just say it's a magical place for the kiddies) didn't lend itself to looking for records, so, for the first time in months, I took an entire week off from digging. Such is the sacrifice I made for the good of the team.
Today, I thought that I'd whip up my second It's Great Shakes Radio podcast. This time, it's entitled Everybody Dance. What we have here is a collection of songs, taken from records scored at this month's St. Louis record show. Everything here is upbeat and dancable r&b and soul from the late 50's through mid 60's, with 14 tunes in all.
Here's the track listing:
Willie White & the Bleu Matts - Everybody Dance (Odessa)
Four Hollidays - Grandma Bird (Markie)
Bobby Marchan - Chickee Wah-Wah (Gale)
Elton Anderson - Cool Down Baby (Mercury)
Phil Flowers - No Kissin' At The Hop (Wing)
Etta James - What I Say (Argo)
Eddie "Blues Man" Kirkland - Chill Me Baby (Prestige)
Lowell Fulsom - The Thing (Kent)
Jimmy McCracklin - Can't Raise Me (Imperial)
Larry Birdsong - Continental Time (Home of the Blues)
Bobby Miller - Uncle Willie Time (Constellation)
Sir Mack Rice - I Gotta Have My Baby's Love (Stax)
Prince Harold - Baby, You've Got Me (Mercury)
Mamie Galore - It Ain't Necessary (St. Lawrence)
And here's the file, available for playback or download. I hope that everyone enjoys it. Please don't hestitate to comment or report any problems to me.
