I posted this song once before, a long time ago. It was only up for about ten minutes. I was so embarrassed by what I wrote that I deleted the whole post.
Ya see, this 45 often gets dismissed as a minor effort whereas I happen to think it's brilliant. And given that it didn't sell very well back in the day, I guess I have to accept that I probably hold the minority view of this one. So be it.
Anyway, in my opinion this is not so much a dance tune as it is a mini symphonic ode dedicated to all dance tunes. Don Covay may be carrying-on about the Shingaling but what he's really reaching for here is the joyfully transcendent power of ass-shaking with a capital A.
Bob Gallo gets total credit for the over-the-top production.
Hope ya'll enjoy....
