Various: On The Dancefloor With A Twist Again! - 23 More Tunes to Twist It Up (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 36-page booklet, 23 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 min.

  • The CD album 'On The Dancefloor With a Twist' (BCD17666) released in the summer of 2022 on Bear Family Records® was enthusiastically received by fans and dance crazies!
  • So it's time for a second jam-packed CD compilation with 23 more examples from the early 1960s, when seemingly the whole world became a dancefloor for hip-swinging people.
  • Included: the inventors of the twist, Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, the Isley Brothers and the Marvelettes, pop greats like Louis Prima, Connie Francis and savvy guitarists like surf legend Dick Dale and bluesmen like Freddy King and Jimmy Spruill and and and ...
  • Extensive liner notes by Chicago music historian Bill Dahl in the comprehensive illustrated booklet and carefully mastered recordings from the best possible sources round out this fourth edition in our 'Dancefloor' series! 

Last year’s ‘On The Dancefloor With a Twist’ compilation (BCD17666) 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. 

The compilation closes with Robby Lawrence’s The Twist To End All Twists - but in reality, this Twist party is just getting underway!
