New York DJ/writer/globetrotting-45-collector Jonathan Toubin is a man on a mission, paratrooping into cities across the nation with a full case of the most destroying soul singles of the 1960s. This isn’t the sweet stuff; instead, this dance party depends on the screamers and shouters and lovelorn psychos who came between rock & roll and funk, when 4/4 beats and slashing horns and even a few brave fuzz guitarists all came together to make kids m-o-o-o-v-e. Fans of compilations such as Buttshakers, Shakin’ Fit or R&B Hipshakers Vol. 1: Teach Me How to Monkey will recognize these songs instantly and ecstatically. The rest of us can use basic deduction and bet there might be a little bit of butt-shakin’ going on. In fact, the best butt-shaker of all will win $100 in the climactic dance-off, judged by Frankie and Geaux Geaux from Secret Affair, Dennis from Good Foot, and Paige and Christy from Punk Rock Wives.
