Jive Juice March chart:


1. Professor Longhair 'Go To The Mardi Gras' (Ron)

Love me some Professor Longhair, and this one's a real jivin' stomper. Come to the Mardi Gras!


2. James Hunter 'Don't Do Me No Favours' (Hear Music)

Wonderful title track from the second LP by this amazing contemporary (and British!) r&b singer/guitarist that sounds like Sam Cooke meets Ray Charles, with a healthy dose of rockin' geetar for good measure.


3. Eddie Bo 'Ain't It The Truth Now' (RIC)

Back to New Orleans for this soulful side by Mr Bocage, perhaps better known for his funk output, but his earlier work is well worth looking out for too. Great gospel-style vocals on this one.


4. Lloyd Price 'Hello Little Girl' (KRC)

I'd been after this rockin' r&b ripper from 'Mr Personality' for some time, finally tracking a copy down recently. Now I'm able to beam from ear-to-ear at will, simply by popping this on the turntable. Monster!


5. Nappy Brown 'Skidy Woe' (Savoy)

All the ingredients for a Jive Juice classic - pounding drums, Tijuana brass and blasting sax, bar room piano and a crazy, nonsensical lyric delivered in the soaring, vibrato style. Extra points for being called Napoleon. Sorry if this gets stuck in your head all day after hearing it by the way – earworm alert!


6. Smiley Lewis 'She's Got Me Hook, Line & Sinker' (JIC)

Another stomping, jump blues jiver, with the magnificent lyric "she's a little bitty mama, she's five feet from the ground, but when it come to loving, she really puts it down". And who's to argue with that?


7. The Ikettes 'Peaches and Cream' (Modern)

How about 1965 soul, from Ike & Tina's backing singers. Very much in the stomping Motown/Northern style, there's a lovely bit of blues harmonica in the mix, giving the sound a little Southern style too.


8. Irma Thomas 'A Good Man' (Ron)


Back to New Orleans for some more Mardi Gras style sounds from the Soul Queen. This was the follow up record to her hit 'Don't Mess With My Man', another regular Jive Juice spin.



9. Big Joe Turner 'Flip, Flop and Fly' (Atlantic)


Swingin' jump blues very much in the style of his previous smash “Shake, Rattle & Roll” - the lyrics supposedly being leftover verses that never made it into the earlier tune. Jive Juice Factoid: Elvis Presley included a version of 'Flip, Flop and Fly' in his first ever TV appearance in 1956.



10. Big Boy Myles and the Sha-Wees 'Who's Been Fooling You?' (Speciality)

Finally it's back to The Big Easy for this big, booming jiver. Apparently the group's odd name derived from their theme song, bandmember Nolan Blackwell's "Cha-Paka-Sha-Wees," which roughly translates from the Creole "We are not raccoons". Incredible.


Hope you enjoyed our selections, see you Satdee night! :love::partyhat::clap:
