Sleeve Notes:
By any mane - il Torcemento, La Torsion or La Torcedura or simply, the Twist - it's the newest craze. How and when did the Twist begin? Most social historians say that about a year ago, teenage singer Chubby Checker introduced it in a disc-jockey show in Philadelphia. Taking it from there, local dancers evolved and elaborated upon the Twist by crooking their elbows, bending forward as if suddenly seized with acute appendicitis and moving their hips and shoulders in opposite directions. Now the Twist has hit England, and students of the art can expect to see local variations taking place. Making Twistory!
The Twist At The Top Club - next door neighbours to the famous Room At The Top - opened to the wailin' sound of Howie Casey and the Seniors. Howie plays tenor sax, Brian Griffiths guitar, Phillip Whitehead on bass and Frank Wibberley on drums. The two singers are Derry Wilkie and Freddy Fowell, and the group originated in the Liverpool area and part of their career included a three - month stint at the Kaiser Keller in Hamburg. As resident band at the Twist At The Top, and through records, their exuberant, meaty sound will twist them to greater fame.
