Bill Brown and His Brownies – “Hot Lips”

brownies-hot-lipsHot Lips, baby! Bill Brown and his Brownies really put something together on this side, recorded for the Brunswick label in 1927. This full combo performance featuring brass, reeds, banjo, tuba, piano, washboard and percussion is as air-tight as it is humorous and fun. Note, the record label states plainly: “For Dancing.” They weren’t kidding! This is so hot, you’re gonna need some lip balm.
