More Info:

On The Dancefloor With A Fingersnap: 31 Pops To Make The Party Shake! - In the CD series 'On The Dancefloor With...' featuring the best danceable music, Bear Family Recordsr here deals with those songs that are accompanied by a percussive finger snap. -Everybody knows Fever, the umpteen times covered cool anthem. We offer Peggy Lee's great version - and that's just one example. -Without giving too much away, the album delivers irresistible grooves and songs by Joe Henderson, the Coasters, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Bill Haley, Dean Reed, Pat Morrissey and even B.B. King, Roger Miller and many others. -Chicago music historian Bill Dahl has written the detailed liner notes in the illustrated booklet to this CD compiled by Nico Feuerbach. Never underestimate the percussive power of the simple fingerpop. Snapping one's digits while listening to a cool melody can be tremendously satisfying and more than a little therapeutic - and this collection will have you doing precisely that from one end of it's expertly curated songstack to the other. From deep-voiced Joe Henderson's '62 smash Snap Your Fingers and The Coasters' hipster streetlife vignette Three Cool Cats to Tennessee Ernie Ford's immortal Sixteen Tons and Peggy Lee's slinky Fever, you'll find the whole thing hard to resist. Not every selection is as well-known as those classics - obscurities by Pat Morrissey, Al Brown & His Tunetoppers, Dean Reed, Birdie Green, and Bill Haley and His Comets are but a few of it's happy surprises (and you haven't lived until you've heard blues immortal B.B. King take on 16 Tons). They're interspersed with more familiar inclusions by Ronnie Love, Connie Francis, Little Willie John, Roger Miller, LaVern Baker, and Chicago rock and roller Steve King (Satan Is Her Name) that'll have you sharpening up your fingers in delighted anticipation of snapping along. So get ready to get cool when you drop this disc in your changer - you'll be fingerpopping like a pro!
