-The second album in the 'On The Dancefloor With ...' series on Bear Family Records®.
-Highly entertaining and wholly danceable compilation featuring 25 of the finest examples from a world that stayed infected with twist fever for years in the early '60s.
-Great popular selections from Hank Ballard - who kicked off the twist craze, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Isley Brothers, Gary 'U.S.' Bonds and many others.
-And - as you would expect from Bear Family Records®: a variety of recordings by rather unfamiliar artists like The Top Notes or Paul Livert and The Lions and twist records by artists you would rather put elsewhere ...
-Produced by Nico Feuerbach and accompanied textually with biographies and excerpts from interviews by Chicago's Bill Dahl in the booklet.
-The recordings come from the best possible sources and have been carefully mastered for this edition.
The whole world was Twisting during the early 1960s. It was the dance craze to end all dance crazes, bands around the globe jumping on the bandwagon to add their own variations to the theme. We ended up with a massive repository of Twist recordings, two dozen of them comprising 'On The Dance Floor With a Twist.' Naturally, the man who started it all, Hank Ballard, is aboard, though not with the anthem that you might expect. Jerry Lee Lewis tearing through I've Been Twistin' might be a shocker to the uninitiated, while veteran bluesman Piano Red's The Double Twist is a delight. The Isley Brothers, Gary 'U.S.' Bonds, Jo Ann Campbell, and Danny and The Juniors check in with classics, while The Ventures, the Glen Campbell-led Gee Cees, and The Champs prove that no lyrics were required to go Twisting. Eddie Clearwater's Twist Like This will leave you swearing you're hearing a lost Chuck Berry classic; Dale Hawkins waxed his Do The Twist live in Miami, and The Top Notes' original Twist And Shout is a real eye-opener.
