Shake Your Hips - Excello Records Story (Book)

Recommended Posts

With Nashville R&B receiving long overdue attention in the literature, it is impossible for authors to avoid reference to Excello Records. In "House of Broken Hearts" I touched on the relationship between Excello Records, Ernie Young and WLAC during the "soul years". Now, in "Shake Your Hips",  Randy Fox undertakes a focussed exploration of the label's history, from Ernie Young's Record Mart origins in the late 1940s selling race music to both blacks and whites, to Excello's late '50s swamp blues period, the development of sister labels and the soul output of the following decade; finally tackling closure of the imprint and AVI acquisition of Young's assets including the label's catalogue in 1980. SHAKE YOUR HIPS is available to order now from A Nickel And A Nail. Order details and blurb via link
