Every now and again, I pick up one of those compilation albums that Starbucks puts on the market. Yesterday morning, we bought Twist & Shout, which pulls together a bunch of tunes from the early and mid-Sixties. We listened to it through twice in the car as we moved through the day. There are some staples of the era of the Watusi and the Frug, including the Isley Brothers' pre-Beatles crack at the title track, Shakin' All Over by Johnny Kidd and the Pirates and naturally Wilson Pickett's Land of 1,000 Dances.
The first tune is Let Her Dance by the Bobby Fuller Four; it took me a little while to recall that the song was used so well for the ending of the Fantastic Mr. Fox.
