"Baby, Baby When You Do The Twist... Never, Never Do You Get Yourself Kissed.."

absolutely one of the greatest lines ever added to a dance craze recording; also playing a major part in the one the most memorable scenes of British cinema; immortalized by "Sting" as he robotically danced to The Kingsmen "Louie Louie" whilst "Jimmy" desperate to impress "Steph" danced freestyle on the balcony railings before hurling himself off into the crowd below..

As mayhem broke "Jimmy" was immediately ejected by security, leaving "Sting" to carry on peacocking in his mohair suit and winning the girl, as The Orlons "Wah Wausi " rang out across the floor...

A worldwide classic dance 45 saturated in the power to catapult you back to 3-button suits, with 6 button cuffs, weekend scooter ride-outs to coastal towns, parkas, French-crops and hidden alleyways for unforgettable illicit liaisons of teenage lust.

A tune to make your knees-tremble...

As the original British 1962 press, you don't need us to remind what a very tough to 45 this is to acquire... this listing is a fine example of bygone days that will go done in the history of the embryonic beginnings of the Northern Soul culture.
