Gotta Stomp!

Bobby Comstock - Let's Stomp

Today finds your ever-lovin' Stepfather of Soul invigorated and full of optimism and ready to "get on down"!

I don't know anything about today's selection or its artist except that I first heard it on a Fat Daddy WSID aircheck. This is one of those early '60s R&B stompers that was always good for a "get down" as the genre began to take shape as "soul" music. The drumbeat kicks things off, followed by handclaps, and then a fast blast of R&B shouting by Comstock, who encourages the listener to get on the dance floor and stomp away. It works for me!
