DJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist USA
Label: Cultures of Sound
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release
Deano Sounds and DJ Andy Smith have teamed up together to put out a great compilation of 50s and 60s sounds including R&B Rockers, Rockabilly, Northern Soul and Sleazy Shakers, much like you would find at Andy's Jam Up Twist club night in the UK. DJ Andy Smith is a well-known British DJ who spent many years DJing alongside Keb Darge at Madame JoJo's and also sourced samples for Portishead and the Prodigy. Deano Sounds is the head honcho of Cultures of Soul Records as well as a DJ and lover of rare soul and R&B. Together here they have selected classic and exclusive tracks from their collections including the rare northern soul track 'Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, classic Rockabilly from Eddie Cash and Sonny West, a handful rare of R&B tracks - some of which were reissued here for the first time including Ernie Washington and Willie Jones, and many other great tracks. The 45 box set version comes in a heavy collectible case with 7 x 45s, an official Jam Up Twist club night flyer, and an 8 page glossy book.
