DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE EMULSIFIED?

Well you’re about to find out, courtesy of this insane 1963 soul workout from REX GARVIN, originally released on the world-famous OKEH label. I first came into contact with it vis-à-vis an ace GIBSON BROS cover of the song; later YO LA TENGO attempted it as well, though I am not privy to how that one turned out. I then heard Garvin’s original on the wild “party” compilation LP, “AT THE PARTY”, which is a must-track-down if you can ever find it (I’ll bet Norton Records might still have some).

In the course of my limited research on this song I’ve just now found out that a blog called THE STYPOD has posted both Garvin’s version and the two aforementioned covers. It can’t hurt for the ‘Twang to post Garvin’s version again, can it?
