mp3: Bill Robinson - The Cow
Bill Robinson, a singer from Tampa, Florida, recorded with his group, The Quails, for several different labels. He toured with many of the early soul stars and, at times, sang lead in The Ink Spots and The Platters. Today's selection, The Cow, was released on American Records in 1963. It's an animal inspired dance-craze record. I imagine the accompanying dance involves motioning as if milking a cow, which is why it might have been confused with The Monkey.
The Cow, The Monkey and many more animal and non-animal inspired dances will be performed at the next Heavy Sugar
club night. With special guest DJs Corrina Greyson
and Colonel Spencer Evoy
, we're going all out for dance-crazes and girl-groups. We're also enticing serious twisters down with a cash prize for the winner of the inaugural Heavy Sugar Twist Contest. So, make your plans now to head down The Alibi
in Dalston on Friday May 23rd and be sure to don your best dancing boots.
