The Blanders – Jitterbug

I don’t know anything about The Blanders. Except that this cracking little record, released in 1958, only ever crops up on compilations of rare Doo-Wop songs.

Featuring a great bass voice and a yearning, rather mournful, lead vocal that somehow complements the song’s freneticism, this is a snapshot of Jitterbug, a charming cad who leeches money off women because he “won’t get a job because he’s lazy”. Fantastic guitar solo too.
