5.0 out of 5 stars Great snapshot of the early Funk Brothers, 20 Feb 2012
This review is from: Twistin' The World Around (Audio CD)
A vital early Motown LP featuring a bunch of mainly-instrumental tracks recorded by the Funk Brothers, the immortal Motown house band. The highlight is "Congo Twist", a frantic seven-minute Benny Benjamin drum freakout later chopped in half and split across both sides of a 7-inch single. Vinyl copies of the album have changed hands for big money since its original release, but this is its first appearance on CD - for this price, you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motown's 2nd LP, 30 Dec 2012
A little known LP which attracted daft money and is now on CD yet few bother to review it.
Its an example of the label as opportunists who would copy everything in sight but then so many did in the Twist era
Which is a giant plus factor in my book.I love copycats and Tamla Motown were on the same level as Cameo Parkway-the labels were notorious for copying their own hits which even went as far as the titles eg the followup to the Marvelettes'Please Mr Postman was called Twistin' Postman.
Though never released in the U K-or even known about-its now on the Real Gone box set Tamla Motown 1961 subtitled Seven Classic Albums.There are no sleeve notes but al you need to know about the Twistin' Kings LP is that it was the house band later known as the Funk Brothers

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twistin' The World Around (Audio CD)
This CD encapsulates the rhythms of early 1960's Detroit, and sets the scene for Motown boss Gordy to establish history!
