Can't Do Sixty No More

by: The Du Droppers

Here's a choice selection of 17 Du Droppers sides covering the 1952 through 1955 time period, as on the LP. Their sound was based on that of The Dominoes, and in fact, their successful "Can't Do Sixty No More" was a sequel to The Dominoes' "60 Minute Man." The group could do up a ballad as well as swing, as witnessed on the beautiful "Blues of Desire" and "How Much Longer." The set includes two cuts with female vocalist Sunny Gale, who scored with "Wheel of Fortune" in 1952. There's no duplication with the Groove Jumpin' collections, but it does duplicate tracks on The Droppers' Detour LP. There's great accompaniment by the likes of Ben Webster and Sam "The Man" Taylor on tenor, plus occasional licks by Mickey Baker on guitar. There are also learned sleeve notes. ~ Opal Louis Nations, Roots & Rhythm Newsletter
