And give a party they do – a really rocking, raw soul party that goes way past any teeny-bopper sort of associations with the "twist" – into a realm that may well make the album The Shirelles
greatest record ever! Both King Curtis and The Shirelles
trade tracks back and forth – in a style that will definitely have you forget the twist in the title, because the overall feel is mostly R&B and raw soul – served up with a mighty nice groove! The Shirelles
hit some great harmonies in an uptempo mode – way past simple chart pop, and nicely soulful throughout – and King Curtis plays tenor and sings a bit, and turns in some nice tracks that rank with his early 60s work for the Fire/
Fury label! Titles include "Mister Twister", "New Orleans", "Welcome Home Baby", "Potato Chips", "Mama Here Comes The Bride", "Take The Last Train Home", and "Love Is A Swinging Thing".
