AllMusic Review by

The third volume in Vampi Soul's Hipshakers series is again compiled by WFMU DJ Mr. Fine Wine and features an array of late-'50s to early-'60s R&B, some jump blues stragglers, and a bit of proto-rock & roll -- punctuated by honking saxes, shouting vocals, and tempos guaranteed to have you doing exactly what the title says. This set features rare tracks from Joe Tex, Little Willie John, the underrated Red Prysock, and many more. Roll back the rugs and grab a partner; this stuff will get you in a dancing mood real quick.
