This single-disc release from Collectors’ Choice combines two Dee Dee Sharp albums: It’s Mashed Potato Time (Cameo, 1962) and Do the Bird (Cameo, 1963). Between the two, there are three Top Ten R&B hits: “Slow Twistin’” (number three), “Mashed Potato Time” (number one), and “Do the Bird” (number eight). Beyond those songs, there’s plenty more fun to be had, including Sharp’s versions of “Splish Splash,” “Rockin’ Robin,” and “He’s So Fine,” as well as “(Dee Dee) Be My Girl” (a “Duke of Earl” answer record).

In your panoramas...
Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.
