My feeble attempt at documenting my record collection and music obsession.

Move & Groove - the real Gil Hamilton not the Johnny Thunder alias
Here is a nice find from last year. I don't know much about this singer. I guess this is his real name and he also recorded as "Johnny Thunder". He had a hit called "Loop De Loop". I did find a review of this single on the web from the Spotlight Singles of the Week Singles reviews in the Billboard magazine issue from December 15, 1962. The review stated "Here's a fine paring, which lead off with a wild rocker given an exciting reading and backed by solid combo support. Fine dance rhythm here. Flip is a listenable ballad, also done with class. Both have a good chance". What more is there to add!
