Countdown Quartet Party With!

Chapel Hill or New Orleans? The Countdown Quartet (actually a sextet) are as horny as a brass band with the rhythm section of a vintage R&B combo, the end result being a party band of the finest kind. Featuring moonlighting Squirrel Nut Zippers and recorded by Rick Miller of Southern Culture on the Skids, there's a celebratory mood on every track. The instrumentals are considerably more endearing than the hackneyed vocal pieces, but you're not likely to care when you're dancing. (Yep Roc)
