Subtitled: Fabulous Rhythm'n'Blues Shakers On The Dancefloor! 1952-1968. This is volume seven in Sub Rosa's series of rare and lost recordings from the '20s to the '60s, following Dr. Boogie Presents Rarities from the Bob Hite Vaults (SR 271CD/LP), Oh, Run Into Me, But Don't Hurt Me! Female Blues Singers -- Rarities 1923-1930 (SR 268CD/LP), Shim Sham Shimmy (SR 279CD/LP), Dr. Boogie Presents 26 Deranged And Smokin' Cool Cats (SR 286CD/LP), I'm Going Where The Water Drinks Like Wine (SR 287CD/LP) and Dr. Boogie Presents Heavy Jelly: Essential Instrumentals (SR 292CD/LP) -- assembled by Belgian radio personality, musicologist, and Canned Heat devotee, Walter De Paduwa aka Dr. Boogie. "Wasa Wasa" means "what's up?" and invites you to put on your dancing shoes. A fine opportunity to remind everyone that what was called rhythm and blues in the late '50s and came from "race music" was the marriage of the word "rhythm," which designated a fast tempo, and the word "blues," which brought to mind the unmovable 12-bar rule. Rhythm'n'blues would become the vector that would let black music infiltrate white popular music and pave the way for the emergence of rock'n'roll. All tracks are taken from the original, authentic 45 rpms.
