Let's Twist Again CD is a compilation of Chubby Checker, was released in 1993 on the Starlite records label. CD music contains a single disc with 18 best songs.
This 10 CD box contains the debut albums by twenty rock 'n' roll stars, including Bill Haley, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Wanda Jackson, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and others. 246 songs in total from 1950 to 1960. It's a first-class collection of ballads, boogies, instrumentals, Rockabilly and Twist, from a fascinating array of rock 'n' roll's most influential artists.
Nothing if not prolific (this is Popa Chubby's sixth set of original material in six years), the New York City-based guitarist nonetheless scores with fresh, often inspired material on this outing, Stealing the Devil's Guitar. He has already shown he can push past the rather strict boundaries of blues-rock by gradually infusing hip-hop, Latin, Southern swamp, and even reggae influences, and continues to do so throughout 12 new songs, along with a cover of Jessie Mae Hemphill's "In This World." Chubby loves to ride a chunky riff and he serves up a tasty selection of them here. The instrumental "Kinda Dicey" is a perfect example; it's a tough, sticky, funky groove, ideal for Chubby's licks. Same with the strutting "Smuggler's Blues," a story of the titular character who is both desperate and determined, with a smoking guitar solo that mirrors its narrator's intensity to get his job done.
The soundtrack for Son of the Mask, the ill-fated sequel to the 1994 Jim Carrey hit, is a by-the-numbers collection of classic rock (Neil Diamond's "Thank the Lord for the Night Time"), oldies staples like "The Twist" and Paul Anka's "Puppy Love," and one strategically placed single, Ryan Cabrera's magnificently forgettable "Inside Your Mind" – you could paste it over his current hit "On the Way Down" without any noticeable change to either. These tracks are augmented by a cover of the jazz standard "Baby Face" by Tony Award winning actress Marissa Jaret Winokur, poor uncomfortable Jamie Kennedy singing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and a dialed in score from composer Randy Edelman. Dreadful.
On this high-power album, the larger than life New York bluesman goes back to the roots of post-war Chicago Blues and plays famous tracks by Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Willie Dixon, etc.He's joined by leading contemporary blues stars Bill Perry, Mason Casey, Matt Smith, Jean-Jacques Milteau, Paul Personne and Dimitri Archip from the Black Coffee Blues Band.On "Old School", Popa Chubby (who recently played some UK gigs) smokes TNT, drinks dynamite and shows he can put some speed on the classic tracks of his blues heroes.
Popa Chubby, born Ted Horowitz, has been hard rocking the blues in his fierce and soulful way for more than 25 years. Over the course of a career that dates back to 1994, he has been a force of to be reckoned with on the guitar, and his tempestuous, soulful playing has never been more powerful. An imposing figure with a shaven head, tattooed arms, a goatee and a performance style he describes as “the Stooges meets Buddy Guy, Motörhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi Hendrix meets Robert Johnson," Popa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre’s most popular figures.
