Album Review

The second album release on Motown (Tamla started two years earlier)was a bad attempt to capitalize on the Twist craze. This "group" was probably the same session musicians who had earlier cut a single on Tamla as the Swinging Tigers. Sax players Thomas "Bean" Bowles and Ron Wakefield played prominent roles in these unsuccessful ventures. Two tracks "Twist Ala B.G." (Berry Gordy), and "Twisting Ales Style," name for Barney Ales (promotions) suggests a manufactured or studio group. Motown released two singles by the Twistin' Kings "White House Twist/Christmas Twist" (11/27/61), and "Congo Twist Parts 1 & 2" (12/18/61) - a little more than two weeks apart, both flopped. The tracks are similar except for the titles and the honky tonk sax sound is prominent throughout.
