HOW BRITAIN GOT ITS MOJO: 1961 AMERICAN SOUNDS HEARD IN THE UKUK

HOW BRITAIN GOT ITS MOJO: 1961 AMERICAN SOUNDS HEARD IN THE UKUK

Playing tracks by

THE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET, HOWLIN' WOLF, ETTA JAMES, PATSY CLINE, THE MOSE ALLISON TRIO and more.

The twist really took off at the end of 1960 and Chubby Checker's second twist single became a much bigger international hit. 1961 saw the emergence of soul jazz, lapped up by mods and the embryonic British R&B scene. More Motown made its way into the British consciousness. Surf rock began this year in the States, but didn't make it to the UK for another year or two.
