A more than appropriate album release in these troubled times comes ‘Think Me A Kiss – Rock ‘N’ Roll Songs Of Happiness’. Full of songs connected with joyful emotions, ‘Think Me A Kiss – Rock ‘N’ Roll Songs Of Happiness’ features thirty tracks from a variety of artists who plied their musical talents during the 50s and 60s. With DJ Mark Armstrong responsible for putting together the songs for this latest compilation album on Atomicat Records, there is much in the vein of traditional rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll numbers. With male and female artists showing their worth such as recording artists Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker and Clyde McPhatter all making an impact by popping up on numerous occasions throughout the setlist, in addition to providing the great cover shot for the album’s artwork. With these Atlantic Records’ recording artists featuring and being inductees of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, there’s plenty to get excited about from captivating vocal performances from the likes of “Little” Frankie Brunson (Big Daddy) ‘How Can I Please You’ that starts the album, and continuing with more rock ‘n’ roll goodness from Sandford Clark and ‘Ooo Baby’, to Sleep La Beef with ‘You’re So Easy To Love’, in addition to Gary Dale with backing singers during ‘Pretty Baby’. There is much to enthuse over here, and the good feelings continue via the quite tender ‘My Heart’ performed by Vilas Craig and The Vi Counts, and later Dorian Burton and song ‘I Want You’ providing further evidence of the quality of these album releases with Atomicat’s usual inclusion of names less familiar from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll. Ending appropriately on dreamy, harmonised vocals of ‘You Send Me’ from the voice of Cornell Gunter, ‘Think Me A Kiss – Rock ‘N’ Roll Songs Of Happiness’ is the perfect album to lift the current gloom and provide a large measure of happiness to all those willing to invest time in this excellent compilation.
