MILLS BROS were remarkable for their longevity and their creativity. And they really were 4 brothers. When one of the brothers died in 1936 after a European trip the father took his place until 1957. They recorded 2000 songs. Sold 50m...
Our next honored song was released in 1955 by Atlantic Records. It only reached #10 R&B but reached #1 in our hearts and the raspberry red 45 played on every jukebox in our southeast beaches. This witty and memorable laid back party tune was also written by the great Rudy Toombs.
“Goin to the party, get with the bunch.
Got a dollar for my nippin and a dime for my lunch”
Still beloved and requested by shaggers...NIP SIP by the CLOVERS
