It's Great Shakes Radio #2 - Everybody Dance

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.

Looks like a great set, but I can't seem to find the download link. No bother, I'll check out the stream tomorrow afternoon just the same. Thanks for the shre and als for the support... Always appreciated.

Vincent, if you want to download, try double clicking on the divshare logo in the upper right-hand corner. It should open a new window and you can download from there. Of course, divshare is notorious for downtime, which could also be the problem.
