Man, it ain't like the good ol' days. I don't mean the days of old school bump and grind, I mean the old days when people used to post old school bump and grind type music. It's referred to these days as all sorts of things, tassel twirlers, shakers, burlesque, and the one that's grown to bug me, titty shakers. Whatever it is you want to call them, they used to be posted on blogs all the time. Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban posted a lot of good ones, and mixes. And for a while they had a "Tassel Twirler Tuesday" (or something like that). Diddy Wah has posted his fair share. I don't know the reason, but you don't run into them that often anymore. Damn shame. But Music For Maniacs recently posted a good mix. Though there are a few radio ads for sexploitation flicks, and not all of the songs are bona fide shakers, but there's some good ones and a few oddballs. The original version of "Baby Let Me Bang Your Box" by the Bangers, Jayne Mansfield's "Suey" with a young Jimi Hendrix on guitar, and Big Jay McNeely's "Striptease Swing" are standouts, but there are lots of them and the zip contains individual files, so you can have yourself a pick and choose party.

There's a handful of other ones to get you in the mood. The ones posted by Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban are the real "Go baby go!" shit. They set the bar.
