Don’t Kick The Teenager Around by Eddie Wilson – Northern Soul 45

Don't Kick The Teenager Around b/w Shing-A-Ling Stroll by Eddie Wilson - Northern Soul 45 on Back Beat Records #596 I was given this record a few days ago, had no idea what it sounded like because I didn't have my record player with me. Naturally when I saw the titles I played Shing-A-Ling Stroll first, and I was happy to have been given such a cool record. Not really wanting to flip the record over because of the odd title, "Don't Kick The Teenager Around", I played it anyway. To my surprise, my ears got hit with a some drums, then a blast of horns, strong vocals, and killer back up singers. What a gift! My son is almost a teenager and he is trying my patience, as I'm sure I did to my parents. I'll take Eddie Wilson's advice. This record came just in time!
