Description by OLDIES.com:

King Curtis was one of the great R&B saxophone players. This collection highlights his solo work, his work with his groups, and his hits recorded with other greats such as Willis Jackson and his band, Curley Hamner, Choker Campbell & Band, and others.

Product Description:

Recording information: New York, NY (1960-1964).
Unknown Contributor Roles: Choker Campbell; Noble Knights; Curley Hamner; Bobby Davis ; June Bateman; King Curtis; Noble "Thin Man" Watts; Willis "Gator" Jackson; Bill Jennings.
Here's an interesting set of singles featuring the great tenor saxophonist recording for various Bobby Robinson imprints. His big hit "Soul Twist" (this is the stereo remix, lacking a bit in bite from the original 45) is the centerpiece, but Curtis also sits in with Les Cooper on "Wiggle Wobble" (again the stereo mix, but sounding just fine), and tracks with Choker Campbell, Noble Watts, Curley Hammer, and Willis Jackson demonstrate what an adaptable musical giant the man truly was. Transfers vary from track to track, and again, like most early Collectables packages, there are no liner notes to speak of, but the music will have you dancing across the room. ~ Cub Koda
