Jim: Hot Hot Hot! This is the best version of Matchbox I've heard
Smokin', if this doesn't make you want to dance, you're deaf. DJ
Jim: Sounds like Beach Bop but the Shaggers
should love it as well. DJ Mike: Great starter song, it pulls you in right away.
Me What I Did Wrong
Two songs in and I'm already sweatin' I think this song might be a bit
over-recorded but this is a great version nevertheless. DJ
Jim: Man, this song cooks. Another Beach Bop that just grabs ya'
and makes you want to "move those feet".
That Way Sometime
This song is a little smoother, not a smoothie, but it definitely has
more of a "beach" sound. I think the Shaggers will love it.
DJ Mike: This
is an excellent song which is currently moving up the Beach Music Chart.
This is more of an "Uptown" song.
DJ Mike: This
is a nice change of pace. This song is good for Cha Cha or Shag.
Another great tune for the Shaggers. This is definitely a Shag Smoothie
with good production and vocals.
Ooooh Yeaaah, now we're cookin'. This song will have our dancers
flocking to the dance floor. This is definitely a Bop tune but it could
work for a quick Shag as well. DJ
Mike: This is a "killer" tune. So far this CD has great
song selections which should appeal to all dance styles.
This tunes also moving up the Beach Music Charts. Great bass and vocals.
This will appeal to the West Coast Swing crowd. DJ
Jim: This is a great tune that's usually sung by Roy Orbison. I
really like this version because it's produced with dancers in mind.
It's a slower Bop for sure but it's another tune the Shaggers will love.
DJ Jim: I
love it. So many good songs done so well. I love "Good Rockin'
Tonight". Most notably done in 1948 by one of the great founders of
R & B, Wynonie Harris, I usually play it by "Solomon
Burke" or "The Roadrunners", both are great versions.
This one's just as good. I'll be playing it often and I know our Boppers
will love it. DJ
Mike: I like it a lot...but wait till you hear the version by
Jimmy Cavallo...all I can say is..."It Smokes". Look for our
upcoming review of his CD soon.
Little Bit Of Love
Put on the suntan oil, grab a beach chair and a beer, man, this is
"Myrtle Beach" all the way. DJ
Jim: Right on man. This is "the sound of Myrtle Beach"
all the way. I think it's too fast by today's Shag standards where
"Smoothies" seem to rule, but it could work if slowed down a
This song is a little slower with a "Cha Cha" sound. I hear it
as a "Shag Smoothie". It's not one of my favorite songs on
this CD, but it "ain't bad" either. DJ
Mike: I totally agree, sounds a little like a hotel beach club
Shag, or maybe Adult Contemporary, but it's still pretty good.
Kicks A_s!! Stevie Ray would be proud. One of the best versions of this
song I've ever heard. DJ
Jim: Another Rockin' tune. A little Bop, a little Blues, I'd call
it a Blues Bop. Whatever it is, it makes you want to move your
feet,...your hands,...hell, your whole damn body!! I love it.
It Will, It Will
This song has a country flair but it's still Bop. The vocals are good
and it's definitely danceable. I think the West Coasters will love this
song, it's perfect for them, but Shaggers should love it as well.
DJ Mike: Who
are these guys, "The Cowboys Of Distinction"? I'm just
kidding, as I said before, this CD has something for everyone.
DJ Mike: This
is an Al Green Chestnut, but I think he'd be proud. These guys definitely
make this song their own. DJ
Jim: Another song which should appeal to Shaggers and West
Coasters. It's got a Cha Cha beat. This is a good smooth song with
