You could be forgiven for thinking that this compilation draws its name from Don Randi’s rare popcorn-oddity “Oh Yeah!” (side 1, track 8). But in fact, it is inspired by the opening lines of Bobby Mitchell’s legendary New Orleans R&B dancer (side 1, track 1)…

“Oh Yeah! Oh Yeah! Yeah, I done got over it.”

Mitchell’s epic fire starter was recorded in 1960 for Sho-Biz Records and has waited almost60 years to be fully recognized as a truly awesome slice of R&B propelled along by Dr John’s piano and Hungry Williams’ rhythm section with a price tag in access of $500!

The set continues with Chuck Scratch Nolen’s signature guitar on his Federal rarity “The Way You Do” and the compelling R&B roller “Pack Your Clothes” by Hamp Jones. Dorothy Berry & Jimmy Norman raise the pace with HB Barnum’s production on his own Little Star labelwhile Carol Fran terrifies everyone with her raucous R&B thumper “Knock Knock”. BK Anderson, Frank Minion and Don Randi round off side 1 with three storming popcorn favourites.

Side 2 is equally uplifting and kicks off with the insanley rare “Honey Bee” by Bethlehem recording artist Lenny Johnson. Look out too for Larry Bene’s in demander “Come Back” and Tony Allan’s harmony rarity “Little Lonely Girl” recorded for Art Laboe’s Original Sound label.
