SHIMMY SHIMMY WALK – Sue Records
Not much known about the Megatons, possibly a house band of musicians at CHESS? Anyway Shimmy Shimmy Walk PT. 1, an instrumental tune, was a large hit in Manchester Soul Clubs including The Blue Note. The flip side was, funnily enough, Shimmy Shimmy Walk PT. 2…
Curiously the theme bass line of this recording was extensively used by Blues and R&B and Soul artists in the sixties.
One example is Separation by King Solomon which adds lyrics to the instrumental from the Megatons and speeds it up.
