Let’s Twist Again

This is my Ventures-inspired instrumental cover of “Let’s Twist Again”, which was written by Kal Mann and Dave Appell, and released as a single by Chubby Checker. One of the biggest hit singles of 1961, it reached No.8 on the U.S. Billboard pop chart and No.2 in the U.K. in February. The song refers to the Twist dance craze and Checker’s 1960 single “The Twist”, a U.S. No.1 single in 1960.

The Ventures included a version on “Twist with the Ventures” their fifth studio album, released in 1962 on Dolton Records.  The album consists mostly of instrumental versions of popular dance tunes from the late 1950s to early 1960s, with a couple of original compositions. It was on the charts for 29 weeks and it peaked at # 24.
