It is really a good post. The collection of the tracks are truly interesting and even more I found out some very important information for my research work. Thank you for your post. Recently I have found out a site, which is dedicated wholly to the R&B and Soul music and the breaking news related to the music industry.

Hi Todd - hope you're good. It's Gav from Get Involved here... I'm starting a new night here in London and it's going to be called Shing-A-Ling!

I'm putting up scans of some of my Shing-A-Ling titled records and wondered if you could help me out with a scan of Shirley Ellis' Shing-A-Ling ditty on Columbia? Basically, I'm going to adorn a web page with such scans and a downloadable "mix" of ten great tracks with Shing-A-Ling in the title.

No worries if it's a hassle -thought I'd ask - you can email me on - thank you thank you
