Records That Make Me Feel Good: 8

Johnnie & Joe: I'll Be Spinning (Chess, 1956)

I'd never even heard of Johnnie & Joe until this Wednesday. Then I heard this which is taken from a new compilation of theirs on the marvellous Ace Records.

I don't pretend to know much about Classic R&B Combos Of The 1950s, but what I do know is this: I'll Be Spinning sounds like the 8-9pm slot of best pre-Christmas night you ever spent drinking too much in an unnaturally dark, unbelievably friendly bar. It's competely joyous. So enjoy.

The crispy belly pork was delicious, by the way.
