Description

The A-side features Jerry “Boogie” McCain's R&B swamp stroller “The Jig’s Up”. Released in 1957 it was McCain’s final 45 for Ernie Young’s Nashboro subsidiary Excello, one of half-a-dozen singles he recorded for the label. McCain went on to release a number of other singles for Gas and Rex before arriving at Columbia in 1962 for four singles on their OKeh R&B imprint.

“Twist 62”, was the flip to the first of the OKeh 45s, “Red Top”, a Lionel Hampton song. It was an attempt to cash in on the latest dance craze but did little, at the time, to enhance record sales, although 50 years on it has a whole new lease of life.
