Editorial Review:

Product Description:
This danceable CD is a re-issue from Jasmine Records from 1962. Originally released as two separate LPs on Dot Records, these two albums feature Keely back by H.B. Barnum and his Combo and Louis with Same and the Witnesses. These albums are from the period shortly after their divorce and Louis' return to Capitol Records. Keely does well on her own, and the band behind her serves better than Nelson Riddle or Billy May strictly for the type of music she's singing. Her voices sounds particularly young and delectable, as she sings some very familiar songs such as "Let's Twist Again", "The Twist" and "Shout!" These songs are all fun, but short, and not typical of Keely. Louis, Same and the boys tear into some of the same songs, but Louis also does a vocal version of "Glow-Worm" and "Route 66". It comes as no surprise that Irving Berlin's "Marie" is almost unrecognisable with the exception of the lyrics... but as always, Louis works his charm, and does just fine without Keely. If you dig the band and are a collector, this CD is for you. The same goes for folks who are looking to twist. So all in all another classic Keely Smith & Louis Prima re-issue on Jasmine. It maybe an almost forgotten dance craze, but the Keely Smith 'Twist' album is a real revelation, proving that Keely could swing with the best of them - for Twist substitute Rock 'n' Roll or R&B and you have the true flavour or twelve superb, rockin' titles. In Keely's own words "Incidentally, the most fun I ever had on a recording session was when I made this album. I twisted all through it for six or sever hours, and the time just flew by - more like a party than working". Listen and you can hear the excitement, the exuberance on every track! And with the added bonus of the Prima 'Twist' album, this is two great albums on one CD.
