    Atomicat Records have expanded the Bop, Jive, and Stroll -A-Rama series and added several new concepts to the series, and Dance Craze -A- Rama Atomicat (ACCD114) inaugurates the additions. The album is stuffed full of thematic dance-craze songs which are embellished with catchy tempos even though many of the titles were one-off attempts by the artist to create a hit, and become as popular as the Twist.”

    During Dance Craze -A- Rama Atomicat 01 (ACCD0116) you will come across twenty-eight thematic songs, with a pleasing dance tempo, several of the titles entered the hot 100 charts, although many of the titles were one-off attempts by the artist to create a hit, and become as popular as the Twist (see Twist -A- Rama Volume One ACCD075).
    Within Dance Craze -A-Rama there are dance-floor fillers in several genres sourced from the golden years 1957 through to 1963. The fun begins with The Isley Brothers frat-house classic Shout performed by Italian legend Dion. Chubby Checker redrafts The Hucklebuck into his elegance, and Steve Alaimo revises Lee Dorseys’ classic Ya, Ya with a softer sound which was aimed at the teenagers of the time. Ace Holder returns to life a song from 1937 and credits himself with creating the Wabba Suzy Q. Should you be confined to home or sitting in a very small venue then The Johnny Otis Show present a gentleman who dances with his hands, Willie And The Hand Jive, and The Isley Brothers make an appearance doing The Drag. Love is in the air for The Crystals who secured a date, Da Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home), Dee Dee Sharp wants a sauce for her starchy food, Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes), Kenny Hamber and David Robertson’s Combo, Do The Hully Gully, and to close the fun Sylvie Vartan happily sings in her mother tongue Dansons (Let’s Dance).
    Of these featured recordings, a handful most certainly caught the record-buying public’s attention, and undeniably they are all A grade titles and perfect for listening and dancing pleasure. Atomicat Records always endeavours to use some lesser-known and for some, perhaps more obscure titles and add something unexpected to every album.
    The series is compiled by Dee Jay Mark Armstrong and topped off with the best possible sound quality from our mastering team at our El Paso, Texas, Studio. The top-quality eco-friendly cardboard sleeve is specially designed to avoid the use of plastic and be environmentally friendly. The album is lavishly decorated by design artist and working musician Henrique San. The twenty-eight dance-floor-fillers are perfect for; Dee Jays, home listening, or cruising around. All that remains is to say, “crank up the volume and dig these musical gems.

    Atomicat Records have expanded the Bop, Jive, and Stroll-A-Rama series, and Twist-A- Rama Atomicat (ACCD075) is a new addition to the series. There are twenty-eight enjoyable twisting songs for those who enjoy dancing and losing their cares. Competing for the crown of King or Queen of the Twist are both known and unknown artists.

    You will hear during Twist -A- Rama Atomicat 01 (ACCD075) twenty-eight enjoyable twisting songs for those who enjoy dancing and losing their cares. Competing for the crown of King or Queen of the Twist are both known and unknown artists.
    The invitation to begin gyrating up and down and swivelling the hips followed by a turnaround spin is throughout the album and the following artists all have that twisting sensation in their songs. Hank Ballard wrote and originally recorded The Twist, although it was used as a B-side of Teardrops On Your Letter, and his 1958 version is featured within the album. Thematic titles about love and twisting are from, Jack Hammer, Kissin’ Twist, and Ronnie and The Hi Lites, Twistin’ And Kissin’. Saxophonist King Curtis with His Combo provides two infectious twisting rockers The Peppermint Twist and The Arthur Murray Twist, with an uncredited vocal from Don Covay. The fabulous guitarist Grady Martin with heavy use of fuzz-tone invites you to Twist And Turn, blues music legend Muddy Waters joins in on the fun with his self-tribute Muddy Waters Twist, and The Champs rework their first hit as Tequila Twist.

    The unexpected titles come from; Johnny Hallyday with his French language version of Twisting The Night Away, which becomes a Laissez-nous twister, and the Sam Cooke connection continues with Johnnie Morisette and his invitation to Meet Me At The Twistin’ Place. The Royal Teens update an old hit and Short Shorts becomes Short Short Twist, and the Latins provide the zany Habibi Twist. Jo Ann Campbell sings, Let Me Do My Twist, Linda Hopkins is dancing with her mother, Mama’s Doin’ The Twist, and Kay Armen declares, I Wanna Twist. A handful of songs omit the word twist from the title but are nonetheless twist tunes and featured are; Chuck Berry, I’m Talking About You, U.S. Bonds, New Orleans, and Chubby Checker with Bobby Rydell, My Baby Cares For Me. The Tornadoes (vocal) Kay Charles end the twisting around the floor fun with Tornado Twist.
    Due to the fickle nature of the record-buying public, only a few artists hit the big-time, nonetheless, the non- hit-making titles are as good as the known hits. The music on the album is not ostensibly collector direction obscure, the songs are ideal for all-around listening. Be it, cruising down the highway, entertaining friends at home, or due to the clear Atomicat mastering blasting from the speakers at your record hop of choice.
    The series is compiled by Dee Jay Mark Armstrong and topped off with the best possible sound quality from our mastering team at our El Paso, Texas, Studio. The top-quality eco-friendly cardboard sleeve is specially designed to avoid the use of plastic and be environmentally friendly.

  • Various - Rhythm & Western Vol. 2 – Your Cheatin’ Heart (CD)

    15,00

    We’re kicking off with a fabulous version of Hank Snow’s ”I’m Moving On” by Clyde McPhatter, right before getting to ”Whiskey, Women & Loaded Dice” by Joe Liggins. Damita Jo gives us an up-tempo version of Hank Williams’s classic ”Jambalaya” and Ike Turner goes back to his Country & Western roots in ”Going Home.” Bobby Hebb delivers a cool version of the C&W standard ”Night Train To Memphis” penned and first recorded by Roy Acuff but also recorded by Red Foley, Grandpa Jones, Webb Pierce, Floyd Cramer, and a myriad of other artists. Low Rawls & The Pilgrim Travelers with ”If He Holds Your Hand” are the perfect example of how much Country & Western was influenced by Black Gospel. The infamous Hank Penny Western Swing tune ”Catch Em Young, Treat Em Rough, Tell Em Nothin’” is cleverly revisited here by Mabel Scott. I think Cecil Gant’s version of ”Goodnight, Irene” is one of my favourites. More bronze hillbilly ditties by Billy Bland and Little Mac followed by an incredible version of ”Got You On My Mind” by Brook Benton (a song also recorded by Webb Pierce, Jim Reeves, Hawkshaw Hawkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Kitty Wells, Buck Owens and a buttload of other singers). More greatness from Ray Charles with his take of ”It Makes No Difference Now” (Gene Autry, Merle Haggard, Ernest Tubb etc.) and Ivory Joe Hunter with his ”I Almost Lost My Mind”. A change of pace with the Lovers (”I Wanna Be Loved”) and a nice R&B rendition of Jimmie Davies’s classic ”You Are My Sunshine”. Lazy Lester gives a swamp blues treatment to ”I Hear You Knocking” (originally written as a C&W song by his producer JD Miller) and Little Esther magically turns Jim Reeve’s Country hit “Am I Easy To Forget” into R&B without really changing much. Arthur Alexander is next with an excellent version of Johnny Bond’s ”I Wonder Where You Are Tonight” a song also recorded by Hank Snow, The Louvin Brothers, Porter Wagoner, Flatt & Scruggs, Ernest Tubb, Bill Monroe, and many, many more. I believe ”Long Gone” is the only Western song Eartha Kitt ever recorded but I may be wrong, the great King Curtis gives an unexpected ”Stand By Me” treatment to ”Your Cheatin’ Heart” and it really works. I’m convinced that ”Don’t Break This Heart Of Mine” by Jimmy Beasley and ”Farewell” by Willy & Ruth would have been C&W hits done by Country artists. More ”Country & Western-sounding” Black Gospel with ”Wade In The Water” by The Soul Stirrers. Hank Ballard & The Midnighters go C&W trying their hand at Buck Owens’ hit song ”Excuse Me (I’ve Got A Heartache)” and I must confess I like what they have done with it. A second helping of Little Esther this time doing Hank Williams’ ”Why Should We Try Anymore” followed by a boss version of Hank Thompson’s ”Humpty Dumpty Heart” by Elton Anderson. I always thought ”I Burned Your Letter” by Ruth Brown was a C&W tune that got labeled as ”R&B” because of Ruth’s skin color. I’m glad I could include the song in this volume. It was actually one of the very first ones I thought of when I started to work on this series. The closing number is the classic Western tune ”Cigarettes, Whusky, and Wild, Wild Women” by The Big Three Trio. The Nashville songwriter Tim Spencer penned this song in 1947 and first recorded it with his group Sons of the Pioneers. the song is titled either Cigareets, Whuskey, and Wild, Wild Women or Cigarettes, Whiskey, and Wild, Wild Women. and has been recorded by numerous artists. Country & Western fans probably remember the version recorded by Buck Owens.

  • Genies / Don & Juan - Who’s That Knocking / What’s Your Name (CD)

    13,00

    THE GENIES were a short-lived DooWop group who dented the US Top 100 in 1959 with their very first release, ’Who’s That Knocking’, and ceased trading a year or so later after cutting a handful of 45s.

    DON & JUAN were a DooWop vocal duo who registered a massive, million-selling hit with ’What’s Your Name’ in early 1962, but were unlucky with follow-ups.

    The link between The Genies and Don & Juan was the lead voice of Claude Johnson, a vastly underrated singer and above average songwriter who, despite these two brushes with success, remains something of a mystery man.

    The Genies’ other ’main man’ was singer Roy Charles Hammond, who later became well known as Roy ’C’.

    This compilation anthologises all the known recordings of The Genies and Don & Juan to the end of 1962, and also features a couple of Hammond’s spinoff Genies-oriented projects.

    These sides are all collectors’ rarities, many of which are hard to find elsewhere on CD.

  • Grimes Tiny - Rocking The House – Jukebox Singles As & Bs 1947-1953 (CD)

    13,00

    Lloyd ’Tiny’ Grimes was a master guitar player and a pioneer in the world of music at a time when R&B music was becoming Rock ’n’ Roll.

    26 tracks by the man many claim was the ’inventor’ of Rock ’n’ Roll.

    Contains the A & B sides of records issued by the guitarist on Atlantic and Gotham labels between 1947 and 1953 including his 1948 hit ’Midnight Special’.

    Musicians on these sessions include tenor sax player Red Prysock and bass player Ike Isaacs, both famous for their overall contribution to music.

    The appearance of Claudine Clark on the final track asks the question ’Is it the same Miss Clark who recorded ’Party Lights’ in 1962?’

    The CD comes with an informative booklet containing label scans, photos and press ads for the artist from the time of the recordings.

  • Brenston Jackie - The Blues Got Me Again – Singles 1951-1962 (CD)

    13,00

    JACKIE BRENSTON’s name is of course ubiquitous in all discussions and/or essays concerning ’What was the very first Rock & Roll record?’ due to his bootin’ ’Rocket 88′, a #1 R&B record in 1951 which was famously covered by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen.

    Brenston was a singer/saxophonist in Ike Turner’s band, and his sole hit was essentially a head arrangement based heavily on Jimmy Liggins’ ’Cadillac Boogie’, which came together in Sam Phillips’ recording studio, in Memphis.

    Although the disc was credited to ’Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats’, they were actually Ike Turner & His Kings of Rhythm.

    However, although follow-ups like ’My Real Gone Rocket’ and ’Independent Woman’ are highly-regarded by collectors, he was unable to register another hit.

    This compilation comprises everything that Brenston recorded as a lead vocalist between 1951-62, either solo, with Ike Turner, or with Chicago guitarist Earl Hooker; this is the first time that these twenty-seven tracks have been thus compiled.

    Singer/multi-instrumentalist CLARENCE GARLOW (he played guitar, accordion and fiddle) is best known for his 1950 R&B Top 10 hit ’Bon Ton Roula’, recorded for the Houston-based Macy’s label.

    A disc once described as ’The Rhythm & Blues-laced Zydeco song which introduced the Louisiana music form to a national audience’, it has also been widely recorded as ’Let The Good Times Roll’, a loose translation of its Cajun-French song title.

    Although Garlow never registered another national hit, he was a huge star throughout Texas and Louisiana throughout his career, and his subsequent releases on labels like Feature, Aladdin, Goldband, Flair and Folk-Star – all included herein – were significant regional successes.

    This body of work has been unavailable on CD for many years.

    13,00

    Saxophonist/bandleader PAUL WILLIAMS cut one of the biggest hits of 1949, ’The Huckle-Buck’, which topped the US R&B charts for fourteen weeks.

    A hugely influential disc, it was one of the first to employ the honking tenor sax solo which would become the hallmark of R&B and R&R during the 1950s.

    This compilation, which is built around ’The Huckle-Buck’, also includes Williams’ other 1940s R&B hits, ’Thirty-Five Thirty’, ’The Twister – Parts 1 & 2’, ’Waxey Maxie’, ’Walkin’ Around’, ’House Rocker’, ’He Knows How To Hucklebuck’, and ’Pop-Corn’.

    These sides, recorded between 1948-55, present a powerful body of work; notable featured sidemen include Wild Bill Moore and Noble Watts (tenor saxes), Mickey Baker (guitar) and singers Larry Dale and Little Willie John.
