Greatest Twist Hits

LP (Item 45949) Atlantic, 1962 — Condition: Very Good+

Don't be put off by the "twist" in the title – as this is a killer collection of R&B work from Atlantic Records – with some rare soul singles too! The cover claims that this album contains "the 16 best twist numbers by the world's most authentic performers" – and titles include "How Many Times" by Solomon Burke, "Rock & Roll Machine" by Tee Tucker, "Jam Up Twist" by Tommy Ridgely, "Mr Lee" by The Bobbettes, "I Want To Know" by Lloyd Sims, "Twist & Shout" by the Top Notes, "Do The Hully Gully" by King Coleman, "Bootie Green" by the Clovers, and "Jim Dandy" by LaVern Baker.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono red & purple label pressing. Cover has light wear and a small cutout hole.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible!

Chops
Atlantic, 1984. Very Good-
If you don't look beyond the group's name you might come to the conclusion this is some sort of over the top wailing fusion session. But it's more like a second rate imitation of Slave or 80s era EWF over the Sugarhill rhythm section, which isn't surprising since they are using Doug Wimbish and ... LP, Vinyl record album
