Al Casey - Doin' The Shotish


Back in January of 2011, when I started this blog, I posted THIS little number by legendary session guitarist, Al Casey.
The flipside has the same sound in terms of instrumentation, but is a bit more uptempo with a great organ leads dueling with the axe and sax. A shotish (or schottische) is a polka-type dance by the way.

Ram-Bunk-Shush is the A-side to Blue Largo and was released on King Records in January of 1957. The song was written by  Lucky Millinder, and was released first in 1952. Doggett’s version, thanks largely to Clifford Scott’s honking lead sax, made both the pop and R&B charts, peaking at #10 on the R&B.
