The Egyptians "Party Stomp" (Mah's 1960): NY Night Train Party Platter

This is the continuing series I will post every other day while i'm out of town, thanks to Jonathan Toubin DJ of New York Night Train

Like a lot of the best tracks ever, I learned this Detroit destroyer from Norton Records. I was initially drawn to the cover of Norton's rerelease - picturing what I can only describe as the absolute coolest looking band I've ever seen. Three turbaned young hip black men with matching patterned shirts, white pants, black socks, and white shoes. One holds a tambourine, one a microphone, and the other a guitar. I've never been able to learn anything about these super-heroes other than that they come from the Motor City and look and sound like this. What else do you need to know? Listen to that! This copy of the best rock'n'roll instrumental there is came cheap from my first trip to Peoples' Records when I took the NYNT Happening to the Old Miami in 2009. The other side "Inkster Boogie" is also about as party as it gets and will probably find its way up here in due time!

Feel free to look at their picture, or even order the reissue while you listen

You're listening to my daily addition to the New York Night Train Party Platter playlist. Each track here is recorded directly from my original 45s (no bootlegs, reproductions, etc) to give you an idea of what the real deal authentic vinyl sounds like. COME BACK EVERY DAY FOR A NEW FIX! Because the records pass so quickly at my dance parties, this channel is an attempt to stop and focus on one record at a time in hopes to personally learn more about each one and at the same time turn you on to the artists, tracks, labels, etc. I'm just hipping myself to a lot of these records for the first time as well - so you can view this as our journey to learning more about cool old records together! But mostly I hope this music moves you as much as it moves me.

Get your enjoys,
