AllMusic Review by

People began dancing without partners in large groups in the 1950s with the birth of modern R&B and rock & roll, a trend that continued into the soul, funk, and disco eras, as well, and beyond into the 21st century. This set chronicles the rise of modern isolated dancing with tracks linked to black dance crazes from the late '50s and '60s, featuring the Mashed Potato, the Chicken Scratch, the Twist, the Hully Gully, the Bird, and dozens more.
