Do you remember the 1958 song 'Willie and the Hand Jive'?

Update:

He also discovered such future stars of R&B and rock as Etta James, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Hank Ballard and Little Esther Phillips

Update 2:

Watchdog - You're the best for sharing Hank Ballard & The Midnighters "Finger Poppin' Time" with us. Brings back really good memories to me.
