Promo: Shake A Hand ft Meghan Parnell – Rockit 88 Band

Written by on 16/02/2019

Artist: Rockit 88 Band
Title: Shake A Hand ft Meghan Parnell
Genre: Soul / Blues
Label: 7 Arts Music


1953, New Jersey-born Faye Adams struck gold with songwriter Joe Morris’s soulful ode, “Shake a Hand”, a song very much in touch with the 50s’. Adams version soared to #1 on the R&B charts and #23 on American pop charts. Elvis Presley covered in 1957; LaVern Baker, Little Richard followed and then the ultimate take and remake – singer Freddie Scott gave it the full treatment on his classic 1967 album, Are You Lonely for Me? It was that version that was presented to me by music specialist and big soul record collector, Craig Webb. Craig fired off an mp3 to Jesse King and me for inclusion on our Friday radio show – Groove Radio Friday at CIUT 89.5 FM. The timing couldn’t have been better.

Meghan Parnell – lead vocal
Bill King – producer/engineer/keyboards/mix/cover photo
Jesse “Dubmatix” King – bass/mastering/graphic art
Everton “Pablo” Paul – drums/Side Door Records Studio
Neil Chapman – acoustic and electric guitars
Joe Morris- songwriter
Pub: Hand Lyrics: Sonny/ATV Publishing LLC – Regent Music

And here is the original version, so you can compare.
