Repressed, originally released for Record Store Day 2015. The third volume in Vampisoul's R&B Hipshakers series available on LP for the first time, featuring rockin' R&B and early soul from the King/Federal/DeLuxe catalog. Twenty terrific dance cuts from 1955 through 1964 selected by genre expert Mr. Fine Wine of WFMU's Downtown Soulville. "Here is what we dug: Drummer Cozy Cole's cymbals on 'Cozy's Mambo.' The same track would come out again three years later on King's Bethlehem subsidiary as 'Cozy and Bossa' to capitalize on the burgeoning bossa nova craze... New Orleans native Linda Hopkins's wails on 'Mama Needs Your Lovin' Baby'... the clippety-cloppety rhythm of Earl King's 'Old Faithful and True Love,' one of the earliest recordings on here, from 1955... (NB: This is Earl Connelly King, not the better-known New Orleans singer-songwriter-guitarist Earl King)... the galloping tempo of 'She's Mine,' by the rock & roll cowboy, Joe Tex -- just his third solo single out of several zillion. The whistled response to Mel Williams's lead vocals on 'Send Me a Picture Baby,' and practically everything else about this song, one of our favorites. The brilliant arrangement of Eugene Church's version of 'Sixteen Tons': those bass vocals, those sloppy finger snaps, the chorus of whomp-whomps. The lip-smacking cry of 'rib tips!' amid The Drivers' enumeration of skeletal components in 'Dry Bones Twist.' The irresistible swing of super-prolific keyboard man Bill Doggett's 'Hold It.' Lowman Pauling's electric (in every sense) guitar on 'Solid Rock' [by El Pauling and the Royalton]... All of the voices, especially Hank Ballard's, on 'Nothing But Good' [by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters]... Billy Gayles's caveman attitude in 'Take Your Fine Frame Home'... Jackie Brenston's hoarse, pissed-off kiss-off: 'Much Later' [with Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm]... the slinky beat of 'Thanks Mr Postman' [by Bobby King]... All that percussion on 'Don't Play with Love' [by Little Willie John]... the tightly wound tension of guitar superstar Freddy King's 'In the Open'..." --Mr. Fine Wine. Also includes tracks by Jimmy Peterson, The King Pins, Tiny Topsy, The Mystics, and Harem Girl.
