In 1927 Al Jolsen starred in the first talkie-movie, THE JAZZ SINGER, which gave the world the gift of seeing and hearing a song spectacled on screen. And just as importantly, introduced black music to the white world.
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
