Various Artists: You Got To Give Me Some Of It

Album Review

A collection of raunchy R&B, dissolute doo-wop and blue blues.

Compilations like this are staples of the reissue business; seasoned collectors will recall, and perhaps even own, sets such as Document’s Rude Dudes or Indigo’s Bed Spring Poker and He Got Out His Big Ten Inch. From the very earliest days of the black recording industry there was a sizable market for songs that were both humorous and suggestive, and sometimes close to blatant.
