On The Dancefloor With A Twist Again: 23 More Tunes To Twist It Up (Various Artists) on CD

EU collection. Last year's On The Dancefloor With a Twist compilation was so much fun that it's time for round two! It's another jam-packed tribute to the dance sensation that swept the globe during the early '60s, containing 23 more workouts that'll have you lacing your Twist shoes up tight. Naturally, the originators of The Twist, Hank Ballard and The Midnighters, are liberally represented with two more stellar examples of their historic invention (Do You Know How To Twist and Mr. Twister). The Isley Brothers' classic Twist And Shout and The Marvelettes' Twistin' Postman are here as well. But plenty of singers not usually associated with dance also turn up, including Louis Prima and his deadpan distaff partner Keely Smith, Connie Francis, Linda Hopkins, and Billy Riley (as Darron Lee). Guitar wizards Dick Dale, Wild Jimmy Spruill, and Phil Baugh peel off red-hot licks in service of their Twist instrumentals; even Chicago bluesmen Freddy King and Smokey Smothers jumped into the craze. Included too is the second half of Paul Livert & The Lions' epic Chicken Twist, which took up the entirety of Side 2 of their 1962 album.
