Twist to the Oldies with Fats and the Chessmen

Here's an album that tied into the dance craze at the time, the twist. It features a number of old songs fitted into a twist tempo. As with any album like this, it works better for some of these than with others. I prefer the ones that include singing by a cut-rate Chubby Checker sound-alike. Hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Twistin' School Days
  2. Bill Bailey, Please Come Home
  3. Boogie Woogie Twist
  4. The Camptown Twisters
  5. Give My Regards to Broadway
  6. Sweet Rosie O' Grady
  7. Twistin' Through the Park
  8. Ja-Da
  9. And the Band Played On
  10. Sweet Adeline Twist
  11. Man on the Flying Trapeze
  12. Yankee Doodle Twist
  13. When the Saints Come Twistin' In
