Nice. We're finally getting a break from one of the hottest summers on record. And while we're on the subject of records - treat yourself to these hip 45s. I'm putting a Totally Twistin' compilation together and these are a few of the stand outs so far.

Let's go back to 1964 and start this micro Twist Party with Orchestre James Award's goofy Batman influenced number called Tanganyka Twist!

Next up is the Migiani Grand Orchestre with their 1962 diity Swim Twist!

And finally, we've got one more twist tune from 1964 by Lou Cleveland et Son Orchestre De Danse with their appropriatly titled One More Twist!

So move some furniture and get twistin'!



Chant Of The Moon

In honor of tonight's Full Moon - from his 1959 album VooDoo, Robert Drasnin's enchanting Chant Of The Moon.

Drasnin also composed the incedental music for three episodes of Hawaii Five-0.

Lots more here: Robert Drasnin.
