LocoBop L2I-167

 

Volume One of LocoBop’s new Shake the House series is guaranteed to rattle your windows.  Featured artists include the Bar-Kays, Eddie Floyd, Rufus Thomas, Luther Ingram, Eddie Cotton and more, all selected to get you on your feet.
 

Eddie Floyd kicks things off with his classic “Raise Your Hand” followed by blues guitar-maestro Eddie Cotton rollicking through his version of the old Willie Dixon favorite called “The Same Thing”.
 

Before you can catch your breath, accordion whiz Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers offer the slamming “Better Go Get It”. Keeping up the pace, Houston’s Pop-Swamper and blues-harmonica virtuoso Tommy Dardar tells us about our “Crazy Mixed Up World”. 

The legendary minstrel showman and world’s oldest teenager Rufus Thomas is up next, partying with “I’ll Be A Good Boy”. Rufus composed the next track, “Philly Dog”, which was recorded live in Viennes, France by the Memphis All Star Band, when they opened a concert for Rufus’s Daughter, Carla Thomas. Speaking of Carla’s concert, her live recording of “Lovey Dovey” is just as exciting now as when she and Otis Redding charted with it over 40 years ago.

“Jody’s Got Your Girl and Gone” is Bourbon Street fixture Chewy Thunderfoot Black’s worthy contribution to the album. Chewy is followed by fellow Big Easy star Tommy Ridgley rocking his way through the New Orleans classic “Ooh Poo Pah Doo.”

The final three tracks take us back to Memphis: The Memphis All Stars give us an incredible house destroying version of “Jesus On The Mainline;” “I Can't Stop” comes from sweet soul singer Luther Ingram; and lastly the great Bar-Kays bring down the roof and end the set with “Holy Ghost”.
