The Shoop Shoop Song (Deluxe Version)
Label: Vee-Jay Records
Hit play on Betty Everett's 1964 smash "The Shoop Shoop Song" (remembered as "It's in His Kiss") and enter oldies heaven. Don't stop there, though. Everett excelled at everything from gritty RnB and rock 'n' roll to Phil Spector-style pop opuses and tunes that play like lost Motown classics (check out the amazing "It's Getting Mighty Crowded"; it failed to click in the States, but became a major hit in the UK, revered by the likes of Elvis Costello and Paul Weller). This whole collection is dynamite.
