1962 was the peak year for hit records instrumental-style, with no less than 123 discs scoring on the American pop charts. There wasn’t much in the hit parade to interest R&B fans though, apart from King Curtis’s Soul Twist, Booker T. & The MG's Green Onions and James Brown’s Night Train, but that’s where Mighty Instrumentals R&B-Style 1962 comes in. So what was new in ‘62? A bit of surf, a bit of funk, a Civil Rights semi-instrumental, a brand new rhythm on Boogie Twist. More slinky organ groovers, uptown dancers and late night smoochers. And there you have it – 18 R&B scorchers with rhythm aplenty.
