Image: 1581619 Two cool dance floor packers from the early 60s back to back. And here in the UK we can be proud of our own Dick Jordan, a singer who hailed from Yorkshire and forged a decent career as a laid back crooner / teen idol just as the 60s began to really swing. And if there's one adjective that would summarise 'I Want Her Back', it would certainly be 'swinging'!

On the flip-side, we find New Orleans ex-pat Jack Hammer, who after moving to Europe in the late 50s fashioned himself as a 'twist' specialist, cutting several sides for the Belgian based Ronnex label in tribute to the most widespread dance craze of them all. Beginning with a slow and quietly delivered vocal refrain before exploding with a snappy, jinking drum patter, 'Twist In The Morning' is surely Hammer's best 'twister'.
