The Frankenstein Walk
Gene “Bowlegs” Miller? Well, in them thaar now distant 1960’s every Soul singer thought it a good idea to do a song about a dance, even if they hadn’t invented it. The song basically is Frankenstein the monster telling us how to do his dance.
We had the Shimmy, The Boo-galoo, The Funky Broadway, The Jerk, The Shingaling, The Skate, The Duck, The Swim, The Hully Gulley and loads more. The songs are still with us. The dances? Who can do The Duck now?
The Frankenstein Walk was the offering from the legendary Gene Bowlegs Miller and record producer from the HI Records stable often collaborating with the fab Mr Willie Mitchell. A trumpet player and song writer.
