The Real Thing....Tina Britt
This is on my list of all-timers. It's part of the Sue umbrella-group of labels in the early-mid-1950s.
I think that it's perfect. I love the life in it; I love the production; I love the performance; I love the loping, driving beat; I love the enthusiasm.
Sometimes I wonder if it's just geezermania, or if music was actually better back in those days. Is it just a bunch of oldsters reminiscing? Or was this music drenched in a wild abundance of sincerity, talent, and enthusiasm that just can't be reproduced these days?
I'm going to leave that one hanging.
