2012 collection. The song 'Land Of 1000 Dances' has become a 'standard' across various music boundaries over the decades, with Wilson Pickett's high-energy smash hit version from 1966 perhaps best known, but the original version was by Chris Kenner from New Orleans, who adapted Gospel song 'Children Go Where I Send You' into an ear-catching, rhythmic anthem to score a local hit in 1962 on Instant Records. Kenner previously charted in 1961 with 'I Like It Like That Pt.1 (Instant)', covered for international success by UK group the Dave Clark Five in 1965, and some four years earlier with his original version of 'Sick and Tired' on Imperial, revived in 1958 by label-mate Fats Domino. The success of 'Land Of 1000 Dances' prompted Atlantic Records to take interest and release a now very collectable LP gathering together a selection of Kenner's Instant singles, with production by Allen Toussaint. Shout Records is pleased to present a re-issue of this hard-to-find item.
