Product Description:

Illustrator: Chris Johnson .
Although the late-'80s movie Shag has forever fixed the Carolina beach music scene as an early-'60s phenomenon, there has been a decades-long appreciation for obscure soul, R&B, and blues records along the southern coast of the Atlantic, one just as vibrant as the better-known Northern soul scene in the U.K. and the Belgian "popcorn" subculture. The 2005 compilation Beach Music Party: Beach Music Hits collects new recordings by a variety of performers associated with the scene, including cult heroes like Lee "Shot" Williams. Rick Lawson contributes four of the 14 tracks, including the gleefully rude "Back That Thang Up" (not the hip-hop hit by Juvenile, but something more along the lines of Joe Tex's "Ain't Gonna Bump No More [With No Big Fat Woman]") and the self-referentially anthemic "Beach Music Party." Lawson, whose smooth tenor recalls a number of the '70s Philly soul singers, is the most accomplished singer here, although Quinn Golden's working-for-the-weekend anthem "It's Saturday" has the elegant, summery feel of the best beach music hits. Those looking for obscure '60s classics will be disappointed, but Beach Music Party: Beach Music Hits is an encouraging sign that this kind of soul is still out there. ~ Stewart Mason
