After a disappointing election, it seems like a good idea to turn my thoughts to something a little more uplifting. I'm getting all kinds of happy thinking about the upcoming Sugar Town Sno-Ball! In fact, I can't seem to get this tune out of my head, so I thought I'd make it the Record of the Day.
The Titans were an LA-based doo wop group who recorded just a handful of singles for a variety of labels in the late 50s. They disbanded in the early 60s. One group member went on the become Curtis Knight, famous for being the band leader of one of Jimi Hendrix's pre-psychedelic bands.
I love the uniqueness of this record. It's what I look for when choosing songs for my set. I'm not just looking for a beat. I want something that stands out, grabs people and commands attention. The raw production, weird lyrics, and of course the handclaps work together to make this one a real crowd-pleaser.

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
