Twist and Groove With the Shirelles and King Curtis! The Shirelles & King Curtis Give a Twist Party and EVERYONE'S invited! Grab the gang and come twist your way through eleven electrifying tracks. CLEAR THE DANCE FLOOR!
In 1962, the twist was EVERYWHERE. Artists from Joey Dee to Frank Sinatra were all chasing the craze, feverishly recording twist-able platters to meet the dance floor demand. Saxophone great King Curtis didnt sleep on the trend, scoring a major hit with Soul Twist along with several other twist-themed singles. Thus, it was only natural that he should team up with the countrys #1 girl group, The Shirelles, themselves in the middle of an incredible run of chart-topping singles. This inspired pairing resulted in the Shirelles second LP release of 1962, The Shirelles and King Curtis Give a Twist Party.
And what a party it is! The albums eleven tracks mix scorching instrumentals with vocal numbers, never once stopping for air. Curtis gritty sax tone combines with The Shirelles dulcet harmonies for a one-of-a-kind sound that will have everyone in the house on their feet, wearing through shoe leather. Sourced from the original Scepter analog master, this Sundazed reissue is destined to become a go to LP for your next soirée. Because when The Shirelles and King Curtis Give a Twist Party, the only acceptable RSVP is "YES!!!
