Happy Halloween! The record of the day is brought to you by the extraordinarily talented Linda Hopkins whose career stretches back to her childhood in the 1930s. She was discovered by Mahalia Jackson at age 11, so by the time this record was released in the early 60s, Linda had been in the business for nearly three decades.
This Berry Gordy composition was recorded by a couple of folks in the 50s before it made its way to Linda in 1964. It's a swingin' soul floor-filler produced by Nat Tarnopol (Jackie Wilson's manager) and is complete with hand claps and the commanding vocals of a seasoned blues-belter who whips you up into a freaky frenzy on the dance floor.
I'm fairly confident this song will do the TRICK to satisfy your craving for a Halloween TREAT! Enjoy!

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!
