The Rollers "Troubles" (Bel Star, 1962): NY Night Train Daily 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

A Los Angeles group that evolved out of the Jewels in the early 1960s recorded this weird and wild dancer produced and arranged by Gary Paxton - the legend behind Monster Mash, Alley Oop, and many more! A snappy beat, an unusual arrangement, and a pentatonic riff. While it sounds like a party, the lyrics are about "troubles" and if you missed the theme, the word "troubles" is repeated dozens of times....

This video is a today's installment in the New York Night Train Party Platter YouTube playlist ( Every track is recorded directly from the 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 parties, this channel is an attempt to slow down a bit and focus on one record at a time in hopes that it'll hip you to artists, tracks, and other details - and, on the most base level, give you something to listen to.

Get your enjoys,
