Chubby Checker :: Holland Sessions, 1971

Cut in Holland in '71, and touted as Chubby Checker's 'psychedelic' record, we grabbed this on a lark expecting (if nothing else) an interesting look at Checker's later work. What we found ended up on repeat for days. Dump your preconceptions---forget "The Twist" and listen to the session's first track, "Goodbye Victoria", for a taste of what we're talking about it. A slow soul burner, the track sits perfect right alongside your Lee Moses records. Details on these sessions are scarce, but below is an excerpt from a post on the twilight . . .
