Shirley Ellis - The Complete Congress Recordings (2001) MP3/Flac

alt

Shirley Ellis was a much better singer than her material would indicate, and though she recorded a lot of songs slanted toward the charts, The Complete Congress Recordings offers quite a bit to fans of '60s pop-soul. All boasting bright, bouncy arrangements and some clapping polyrhythms, her surprising string of hits -- "The Nitty Gritty," "(That's) What the Nitty Gritty Is," "The Clapping Song (Clap Pat Clap Slap)," "The Name Game," and "The Puzzle Song (A Puzzle in Song)" -- are all featured, along with her surprisingly strong versions of R&B standards like "Kansas City" "C.C. Rider," and even "Stagger Lee."(All Music Guide)
