The Checkmates: Do the Walk

Once upon a time I thought I knew a lot about “oldies” music, but the more I delve into things the more I find that I’ve just barely scraped the surface. The good news about that is that there’s just so much good stuff out there to be discovered, like this cut by The Checkmates, Ltd.

Clocks in at just a bit more than two minutes, give it a listen or two and you’ll find yourself humming it later in the day. Released in 1966 on Capitol Records, B-side “Glad for You” which has a great chorus but sounds a bit underdeveloped.

Editor, writer, communications expert, former community manager, open source enthusiast, music nut, and cat guy. Not necessarily in that order.
