High Society Twist - Carl Stevens

Indian Love Call
High Society Twist
Carl Stevens And His Orchestra
Mercury Records SR 60664

From Billboard January 13, 1962: Another in the Twist-type album line specifically shaped for the adult market. The album is made up exclusively of tunes familiar to the "30 and older" club with a heavy accent on humor and arrangement. There are stereo ping-pong effects, use of vocal chorus, strings and other devices as well as a very authentic and swinging Twist rhythm.

Yup, you get a space age cocktail of all the goodies mentioned in the Billboard review topped with a twist of Scottie Dog on the cover. Really, Stevens manages to keep the beat moving along throughout the entire album with those fresh inventive devices.

    1. Samples can be found under images of the cover art on most posts. The Divshare player is Flash, so the player will not display on some mobile devices.
