Archie Bell & The Drells

Artist: Archie Bell & The Drells
LP: Dance Your Troubles Away
Song: "Let's Groove"
[ listen ]

Sometime after John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Archie Bell heard someone remark that nothing good ever came out of Texas (except maybe this). Well Archie Bell & The Drells came out of Texas and they're good, so they decided to spread the word via their 1968 smash #1 hit, "Tighten Up." You can find Archie and his Drells performing "Tighten Up" by clicking the YouTube link below, then read about the group here and in the "Dance Your Troubles Away" liner notes below.
